DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Ba Le, Delimark Cafe, Feng Mao Barbecue, Midnight Coffee, People's Eatery, Souvlaki Express , Sushi Hana, Tony's Cafe & Grill

This week on DineSafe, the People's Eatery on Spadina brought with it a little more than breads and circuses. Most notably, insects. After about four slaps on the wrist over the past year for so-called failures in "pest control," the restaurant was finally shut down this week for failing to "prevent an insect infestation." Who would've seen that one coming?! Also on the DineSafe low list this week is Sushi Hana on Yonge north of Wellesley, which has been doing pretty well since its closure back in February, only to regress back to its dubious sanitary ways. Here's a look at some of the offenders on DineSafe this week.
