A Korean restaurant in New York City displays its “A” inspection grade on its front window.

The New York City Health Department awarded 75 percent of Korean restaurants in the city an “A” restaurant health inspection rating this year.

Of the 259 Korean establishments graded, 193 received an “A” grade.

Although the average for Korean restaurants remains lower than the total average of 88 percent for all eateries in the city, 75 percent is a marked improvement from 57 percent in 2011.

“Inspectors check for food handling, food temperature, personal hygiene, facility and equipment maintenance and vermin control,” the department states on its website.

The department awarded 12 percent of the 259 restaurants with a “B” grade and 3 percent with a “C” grade. And 10 percent of restaurants have a “grade pending” status, which means they have requested a reinspection after failing to receive an “A” the first time around.

The most frequent health hazard found in restaurants was food temperature, followed by inadequate hand-washing procedures, not throwing away stale food and traces of mice and cockroaches.
