toronto public health dine safe

This week on DineSafe: Country Style, Jimmy the Greek, New Seaway, Oja, Oriental Food Mart, Richlee's, The Friendly Thai, Wanda's Pie in the Sky

This week on DineSafe was a rough one for Kensington Market. As most of us are probably aware by now, New Seaway Fish Market was closed down after someone snapped a photo of a few unwelcome guests at the Baldwin Street fishmonger. Possible cousins of said guests were also found at Wanda's Pie in the Sky a minute or so away. Both shops have since reopened. The DineSafe police also nabbed a number of shops outside of the Market, including Jimmy the Greek at York University and Country Style on the Danforth. Fortunately, no further rats were found. Here is a look at DineSafe this week.
