DineSafe

This week on DineSafe: Amber, Burger Shack, Guirei, Jules Cafe, Landmark Seafood, Saigon Gourmet, Sweet Pepper, Spice Thai Café, The Bagel Stop

This week on DineSafe, Toronto health inspectors found a little more than just busy bees working away in some restaurant kitchens. What's a cute expression for, uh, "pesky rodents?" Yes, two restaurants inspected this week were found to be operating with rodent infestations and thus were subsequently shut down. Along with those closures came plenty of conditional passes, with which repeat offenders such as Jules CafĂŠ and Burger Shack are already well accustomed. Here are some of the DineSafe highlights this week.
