According to the source of the Ministry of Health, currently the restaurant is making renovations in its facilities, but the dust from construction work puts at risk the food consumed in the place, so we proceeded to the temporary closure. In addition, the official source added that the operating permit of the restaurant had already expired so the establishment was temporarily closed on Thursday (Oct. 3) at night."

The article adds that "... The company's lawyer confirmed the closure of the restaurant, while assuring that they will appeal the decision, as they will do with two other restaurants closed three days ago. He affirmed that as for the operating permit, its renewal has been processed since last May at the Ministry of Health, but to date has not had a favorable response. How is it that the Ministry of Health closes for not having the permit if they themselves have not granted it."

According to the authorities of the Ministry of Health, this type of inspection is not only being carried out on this company, but also on other businesses that have received similar precautions regarding the handling of their food.
