This Week on DineSafe: Mother's Dumplings, Korea House, Oliver & Bonacini, Dumpling King

Posted by Julia Stead / December 10, 2013

Holy mother of dumplings were there a lot of yellow-carded eateries to sort through in order to find the top offenders this week on DineSafe. Speaking of which, Mother's Dumplings, everyone's favourite Chinatown lunch go-to graces this week's list with eight infractions. None of them are crucial, so that's what you can tell your co-workers when you try to convince them to still have your Friday office lunch there. Ottoman on Bloor got yellow-carded not once but twice, two days in a row!

The first day they had three crucial infractions, and the next they managed to shave that down to two - both of which were difficulties maintaining proper food temperatures. We've also got Bryan's BBQ racking up nine demerit points, which is a little freaky if you ask me, especially at a place where you cook your own meat. And there's more, like Golden Griddle, Korea House, and Oliver & Bonacini -- all drawn and quartered below.

Oliver & Bonacini??? Ewww. Won't go there now!

Take a walk east to Canadian Tire. There's a hot dog vendor outside that's more trustworthy than Oliver & Bonacini.

Hi all:
I apologize on behalf of Mother's Dumplings' conditional pass, the main reason for that was due to the hot water tank was malfunctioning on the day the inspector was here from the city, he had to give us a conditional due to the lack of hot water. We were able to get it fixed the next day. Thanks for your support!
