The Orange County Health Inspectorate has issued an order for restaurants and other food vendors to close from May 11 to May 18, after which they are allowed to reopen. Several establishments were closed due to rodent or cockroach infestations, while others were shut down because of unapproved construction or renovation.
One restaurant that was closed due to a rodent infestation was King’s Food & Liquor, located at 2263 Fairview Road, Suite Q in Costa Mesa. Another, Ma’s House Restaurant at 601 E. Orangethorpe Ave. in Anaheim, was closed for the same reason.
