Public Health – Seattle & King County closed Issaquah restaurant Macky’s Dim Sum for health violations again Monday after a similar shutdown in October.

Health officials cited the restaurant for keeping potentially hazardous foods at unsafe temperatures, improper cooling of potentially hazardous food, inadequate facilities to control temperatures for potentially hazardous food, and failure to correct repeated violations.

The agency shut down the restaurant at 3:40 p.m. Monday, and the eatery remains closed.

Public Health – Seattle & King inspectors often issue warnings to restaurant owners before a closure is ordered.

The agency closed the restaurant, 317 N.W. Gilman Blvd., No. 43, from 4 p.m. Oct. 2 to 11:25 a.m. Oct. 4 for similar health violations.

In the October incident, officials cited hand-washing facilities, foods not protected from cross contamination, improper cooling of potentially hazardous food, potentially hazardous foods at unsafe temperatures and failure to adhere to the approved risk control plan as reasons for the shutdown.

The reasons for closing a food establishment can vary, and include such issues as failure to follow the permit process and unsafe food handling.

Macky’s Dim Sum opened in Gilman Village in early 2010.

    Bah! I was planning on going out with a friend to eat here yesterday; I was extremely disappointed to find out that it has been closed… again. I’ve eaten here a lot (with friends and family) and not once have we had a problem.

    Asian cuisine often has different preparation methods than western food. It would seem to me that this is the target of the attack. Someone with a vendetta, perhaps? Oh well. I look forward to them re-opening!
