Honey Pig, the Korean barbecue restaurant at 4725 Spring Mountain Road in Chinatown that just opened a second location in the southeast, came within one point of shutting down after a routine inspection by the Southern Nevada Health District on Oct. 6.

SNHD health inspectors found potentially harmful food held at the wrong temperature and improperly cooled, food unprotected from potential contamination, an inadequate number of hand-washing sinks, ineffective pest control measures, single use items re-used and much more during the 40-demerit inspection.

Honey Pig earned 40 demerits from the health department in 2014 as well that was upgraded to an A grade after a re-inspection.

The health department conducts unannounced inspections at least once a year. Inspections are posted online about five days after the inspection. The Southern Nevada Health District routinely shuts down restaurants that receive more than 40 demerits. Restaurants have the option of requesting a re-inspection before the next scheduled inspection.
