Ceviche on Beach Drive

It's gross enough when the food is cooked but the fact that they were server raw food prepared in that environment.

Sounds like either these two places have huge problems inspectors could no longer ignore or they have new inspectors going in to these places.  I have a business that has inspectors come in periodically.  Health dept. is just like any other business: the old timer complacent inspectors who don't care and just say everything is fine, ones that will point things out and do their job and be decent about it, and the assholes who think they have something to prove and are "going places" and report every possible thing they can even when it isn't required.

There is probably no restaurant without a few roaches.  You can never clean enough to eliminate all their food sources and pesticides work but a few always manage to get away.  The health inspector is probably going to overlook seeing a few dead bodies here and there, that's evidence of effective elimination program but if you're seeing a bunch of live roaches then you have a major infestation.   it sounds like this place had WAY more problems than just a few insects though.

If food moving under its own power is a concern, he should stay the hell away from Korean restaurants.

I'd think it was weird if there *weren't* roaches in a Florida restaurant. They are as ubiquitous in Florida as flies are in other places, in fact, the roaches themselves *fly* in Florida. When we first moved there, we moved into base housing that had had no one living there for a while. There was no food or water for roaches, yet the first night, we saw them. Two of them ran across the living-room floor while we were watching TV in the dark room. I had never seen a roach before, so at first I thought they were the biggest spiders I'd ever seen. My dad got up and stomped them and told me what they actually were. I was so skeeved out I begged to move to another house. My dad laughed and said *every* house has roaches in Florida. Florida is roach heaven. The whole year we lived there, we never got rid of the disgusting things. They would come in from outside the house, even, just walk in an open door like they owned the place. It's one of many reasons I will never go back to visit or live in Florida again, even though the beaches in Panama City were gorgeous.

As a St Pete resident, this doesn't really surprise me. The owners of tourist area restaurants in Florida are some of the cheapest and most disreputable people. They have money, they want more money, and they don't care what corners they have to cut because they don't care about the product. This place is a Republican wonderland.

"You can never clean enough to eliminate all their food sources"

which is an issue, because roaches eat farking EVERYTHING.

The headline was clever and this does bear mentioning.

A Greek place called "The Moon Hut" in Cape Canaveral that is no more, was awesome.

Needs this pest control equipment. Surprising how often roaches are mistaken for other things.

Ugh...Greek restaurants. In north Pinellas & west Pasco (northern Tampa  bay, for those that dont know) the Greek buy up every restaurant they can. They got this one great little diner, 50s style deal. Didnt change a thing about it except the menu. We went one day, menu was all F'd up. We asked the waiter what was going on. He said "its greek restaurant now". We left, never went back.

I worked at a coffee shop in Florida once, and we sent in the espresso machine for repair, and the guys at the shop said when they were taking apart the machine, they found a huge roach nest built up inside it.

I also worked at a shaved ice place in Florida, and we had a bad roach problem there too.

But like the guy said above, it's Florida, we have roaches, get over it.
