Toronto restaurants Dinesafe

This Week on DineSafe: Amaya Express, Banh Mi Ba Le, Burger Bar, Hue's Kitchen, Madras Palace, Smoke's Poutinerie, Soban, St. Louis

This week on DineSafe, Smoke's Poutinerie at Ricoh Coliseum had to stop serving its gravy-soaked fries. The shop was forced to close after inspection due to water supply issues, which, granted, sounds a smidgen less horrifying than the rodent- and insect-related problems that have closed other restaurants over the past few weeks. Smoke's was in good company with plenty of DineSafe offenders this week, including repeat-delinquents Amaya Express and Burger Bar, Soban up in North York, Banh Mi Ba Le down south, and a St. Louis location over on the Danforth. Here are some of the lowlights on DineSafe this week.
