It took five days, but Lao Sze Chuan appears to have remedied its bug problems with the city health department. The Chinatown restaurant opened Thursday morning, the first day of operations since Friday when health inspectors ordered Tony Hu's popular Chinese spot shut down.
Restaurant management didn't comment on the shutter or the health inspector's report. A customer lodged a complaint which triggered the inspector's visit. The complaint coincided with a negative Yelp review from July that posted a photo of a roach in food, Chicagoist pointed out.
It's not the first time Lao Sze Chuan's been shut down. Even its Uptown location failed an inspection, but wasn't shut down, Chicagoist noted. But for now, diners can once more eat ma po tofu and other popular Lao Sze Chuan dishes.
