There are no high performers in this week's Kitchen Cops report. But a Brunswick County restaurant better get to work on fixing some problems or it could lose its permit. We begin at China Garden at 300 Yaupon Drive in Oak Island. A couple weeks ago an inspector paid a visit finding continued problems with food temperature on the buffet, threatening to suspend the restaurant's food permit if corrections were not made. Wednesday he returned taking off five points for refrigerated foods too warm. Workers need to wash their hands more often. And the restaurant needs some cleaning. China Harden scored an 86, but the inspector warned that if he found problem with food temperatures in the next ten days, he would try to suspend the restaurant's permit. Back in October, Big Nell's Pit Stop in Ocean Isle Beach had made an 11-point improvement to a 95. But this month it's back to the low performer's list. There were three baskets of moldy produce in the cooler and six jugs of buttermilk dated October and November. Foods stored at the wrong temperatures. And cleaning is needed. 87 for Big Nell's Pit Stop. Now some second chances, starting at Tengu in Southport. It scored an 85 November 15. A couple weeks later it boosted its score to 97.5. Sunrise Pancake House on Beach Drive in Calabash went from an 83 to a 91 a couple weeks later. Magnolias Restaurant in Sunset Beach just made into onto the low performer's list with an 87 last time out. It moved up to 95 during a reinspection. And finally to Bald Head Island, where Shoals Club scored an 87.5 on November 29. A week later it improved to a 94.
