This week on DineSafe: Fran's Restaurant, Templeton's, HoSu Bistro, Liberty Shawarma, Jody's Montreal Deli
See the round-up of this week's worst DineSafe offenders below.
I ended up going home hungry and just making myself something to eat instead.
Tickets were $10 in advance and $15 at the gate (plus parking at Ontario Place which is anything but cheap) all for just the privilege of queuing up on pavement for hours.
With the ambition of tackling our very own list of Toronto's best ice cream sandwiches, Mark updated us throughout the day on his progress via Instagram, eventually annihilating nine out of 12 spots on our list.
We checked in the next day to wish him happy birthday ourselves - and to see how it all went down.
The Toronto restaurant at 121 Dundas West isn't a first for the province. Denny's is already in Brampton, Mississauga, Oakville plus various small towns but is finally ready to give the likes of Sunset Grill a run for their money. Locals not nostalgic for memories of meals along US interstates may be better off at one of our many fine diners, 24 hour restaurants or all day breakfast spots.

While once a rare commodity on Toronto menus, these sandwiches have been adopted by sandwich shops, taverns and even fish mongers. And, while the name po' boy might be short for "poor boy", don't be fooled - these sandwiches aren't exactly cheap though still worth every penny.
Here, in no particular order, are my picks for the top po' boys in Toronto.
