DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: California Burritos, Campus Co-Op, Curry Kitchen, Embrujo Flamenco, Garden Restaurant, Mr. Jerk, The Hub, Wing Company

This week on Dine Safe, the University of Toronto area catches the yellow card bug (I use the term "bug" mostly figuratively.) While last week's report saw the Ryerson area slapped with a number of conditional passes, U of T now joins the fun with a favourite burrito spot, a nearby Chinese restaurant, and a campus co-op cafeteria all plagued with a number of health and safety infractions. Don't worry, Ryerson, you're still on the radar, especially since your central cafeteria (aptly named "The Hub") caught the attention of DineSafe staff due to sanitation and pest concerns. Other conditional passes went out this week to places known to serve up some heat (many of which were, ironically, charged with "inadequate temperature control"), snuffing out the illusion that a little spice kills all. If only...

Here are some Toronto spots with yellow cards this week.
