This week on DineSafe: Le Paradis, O.Noir, House of Wong, Inakaya, Marrakech Restaurant

Posted by Derek Flack / December 24, 2013

DineSafe TorontoDining in the dark got a little, er, more interesting this week on DineSafe as O.Noir restaurant was served with a yellow card. If you can't see your contaminated food, does that make it less gross? A question for the ages. On the bright side, there were no closures this week or last, and the overall number of restaurants being written up is well lower than usual. This, no doubt, is a by-product of the holiday inspection schedule, but why not get into the spirit and just think that everyone's trying just a little harder to keep things spick and span. Here are this week's misfits.

Not surprised about O Noir. Horrible, overpriced food that tastes like Michelina's frozen meals at best, and completely not worth the eating-in-the-dark gimmick.

House of Wong: For decades now has been introducing 'Chinese' food to the young palates of East Scarborough. My family only ever got sick from their food once, giving it a success rate of 95%. When was the last time I had a ball of Chicken smotherered in neon red Sweet & Sour sauce?
