Dinesafe TorontoThis week on DineSafe, a popular Mexican restaurant in Baldwin Village got the red flag. Poor show, Margarita's Fiesta Room. Shut down for a variety of infractions amounting to "gross unsanitary conditions," Margarita was the lone closure in this week's list of underachievers.

I don't even care. There is nothing they can do short of bathing rats in their soup that would make me not eat there. SO GOOD

Buk Chang Dong Soon Tofu was re-inspected yesterday October 22 and given a green light: "This establishment was inspected by Toronto Public Health in accordance with the Ontario Food Premises Regulation, and passed the inspection." So the yellow rating is now out of date, BlogTO!

I agree. I would go to Buk Chang without the slightest hesitation. Their food was simply too delicious.

No surprise at all about Buk Chang Dong being in this list. Their standards have gone down a lot over the years, and I finally stopped going there after getting pretty bad food poisoning.

It's real name is Buk Chang DONG Soon To FU.

DONG and FU are words and meanings I'm not comfortable with.

paragraph which I am reading at this time.

Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really
make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design.
Thanks a lot

Buk Chang Dong is good, but with such a limited menu, It's not worth waiting in line for. It's also worth mentioning that you didn't have to wait in line there until it was recommended in Toronto Life. Finding Soon Du Bu Chigae at Bloor and Christie is like shooting fish in a barrel, but all the hipsters can continue to wait in line while the rest of us go somewhere else.
