DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Biryani House, Burro Burrito, Central Tech, Greek in the Village, Java Jive, Lakeshore C.I., Rancho Relaxo, Sammy's Student Exchange

This week on DineSafe, a few of Toronto's student eateries were branded with yellow flags. Two high school cafeterias — Central Technical School and Lakeshore Collegiate Institute — both fell short of the requirements for clean passes (no pun intended) and were left to operate on conditional acceptances. As if kids need any further ammunition for detesting their school's food services...

Sammy's Student Exchange, another undergraduate favourite on the University of Toronto campus, failed to acquire that green pass as well, guilty of of a total of five infractions. But the worst of the lot this week has to be Rancho Relaxo on College, which rang in after inspection with a final count of nine. Nachos, anyone? Here are some of the places that landed on DineSafe's conditional list this week.
