SAN ANTONIO – A northwest San Antonio market was forced to close portions of its establishment temporarily and go through a re-inspection last month after racking up a long list of violations.

Manpasand Supermarket, located in the 3700 block of Colony Drive, received a score of 71 and was forced to close its kitchen and meat market temporarily due to not having hot water, having missing drain plugs, a clogged sink and leaking faucets, city health records show.

The retail portion of the market was allowed to stay open.

The health inspector May 5 also found roaches crawling on walls, a prep table, a cutting table and a knife rack holder.
