An informant tells me an east side Chinese restaurant has been cooking food on a portable grill set up on the sidewalk outside the establishment for the better part of a month. The informant and her husband, who live in a building next door to the restaurant and have not only witnessed but also videotaped a seeming plethora of health code violations, also say that the grill is lit with cardboard and enough lighter fluid to create quite a stench. Food sits on the ground in open containers. The cooks are wearing open-toed shoes and no hair nets.
This makeshift kitchen is apparently an inconvenience to the cooks as well, since on one occassion one was seen turning away from the grill to urinate on the informant's building.
I won't name names yet, but if you're ordering Chinese food from any restaurants around North Avenue on Milwaukee's east side, you may want to think twice.
