After finding cockroaches in the kitchen this month, county health officials closed  Balboa Sushi 21 in Newport Beach.

During a routine inspection on Aug. 5, Balboa Sushi 21 was cited with two major health violations and five minor health violations.

A live nymph cockroach was found in a rice bin, and dead cockroaches were found in a sugar bin, behind a freezer, and on a shelf containing soy sauce boxes in addition to other areas in the restaurant, according to a county inspection report.

Balboa Sushi 21 passed a follow-up inspection a few days later and was allowed to reopen.

Balboa Sushi 21 is located at 600 E. Bay Ave. in Newport Beach.
