DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: ABC Bakery, Aji Sai, Amaya, Burger Bar, Markaz, Mideastro, Moe Pancer's

This week on DineSafe, a popular Kensington burger spot was forced to close its doors for two days. Burger Bar is known for its saag paneer poutine and great selection of craft beer, but to the people at Toronto Public Health this week, it's simply one restaurant that has failed to "prevent a rodent infestation." But have they tried the sweet potato fries?!

A few bakeries and cafes were also slapped with conditional passes including a North York bakery famous for its Cantonese custard tarts, and a summertime favourite for shisha in clubland. And just in case you missed Amaya Express on Bayview from a few weeks ago, it's here again with another conditional pass. Here's a brief of some spots that appeared on DineSafe this week.
