This week on DineSafe: Friendly Thai, Hero Certified Burgers, Kabul Halal Meat, Kim Po Vietnamese, Simple Bistro, Steeles Bakery, Very Fair Seafood, What a Bagel

This week on DineSafe, I discovered what is, perhaps, the best-named restaurant in Toronto. That is, a place called "Very Fair Seafood Cuisine" in Scarborough (yes, I understand that "fair" is probably used as a descriptor of value, rather than quality). Unfortunately, I made the discovery because of its eight health violations and not because of any restaurant merits. Oh well. Joining Very Fair on the DineSafe list this week is What A Bagel at Spadina and Richmond, Steeles Bakery up in North York, and a handful of others now toting yellow passes. Here's a look at some DineSafe offenders this week.
