After the Raj’s Banana Leaf incident, the Kuala Lumpur City Council (Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur, DBKL) has been on a mission to hunt down KL eateries that violate the health law.

After a series of restaurant shutdowns, DBKL recently shut down two more eateries – Restaurant TKS and Banh Mi Bread – in Jalan Alor due to their dirty environment, according to The Star.

FYI, rat droppings were even found in one of the eateries. Ewww!

These eateries have violated a law under Section 11 of the Food Act 1983 and were given a closure notice, which was effective yesterday (27 June 2018).

To resume their normal operations, the restauranteurs must first clean up their premises. However, reopening is only permitted after DBKL officers find their level of cleanliness satisfactory during their subsequent checks.

FYI, they weren’t the only restaurants that violated the law!

It was further revealed that a total of 21 fines were issued during DBKL’s inspection rounds that were conducted by 40 officers in 36 restaurants along Jalan Alor.

Some of the major offences committed by restaurants along Jalan Alor were:

  • Not properly connecting the grease trap to the sink
  • Not wearing an apron or hat (or a hair net) when handling food

That’s not very hygienic!

DBKL Health and Environment Department deputy director Chandrakant Patel shared that restaurants operating at night were also inspected during their rounds.

He was quoted as saying,

“We have a large-scale night inspection monthly and our officers from different constituencies have frequent checks in their area.”

“They will also act on complaints of dirty eateries by doing ad hoc inspections in their respective areas.”

He also advised the owners of the restaurants to be around during upcoming inspections because DBKL officers often find it hard to communicate with their foreign workers. It’s probably because of the language barrier! 

Hygiene is extremely important in F&B. Restaurant owners should really be extra cautious and put in more effort to keep their eateries clean at all times. After all, no one wants their business to be shut down, right?
