DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Ali Baba's, Fusaro's, I Love Sushi, Kim Vietnamese, La Palette, The Bagel House, TLC Café, Tung Hing Bakery

This week on DineSafe, Tung Hing Bakery on Gerrard Street East was shut down for the second time in less than two years. I think there's a lesson in there somewhere; let's hope Tung Hing finds it. This time around, the Chinese bakery was caught with more than a dozen infractions, all of which resulted in that wonderful label "gross unsanitary conditions." Joining Tung Hing on the DineSafe hit list this week is I Love Sushi on Queen West (again), and DineSafe newbies Fusaro's and La Palette, which both previously sported impeccable health and food safety records. Here are some of the DineSafe highlights this week.
