DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: 2-4-1 Pizza, Café Palma, Hong Kong Island, Nak Won, Noah's Ark, Teriyaki Experience, The Office Pub, Town Crier

This week on DineSafe, a number of restaurants were pegged with two Conditional Passes in a row. (Hint: that's not a good thing.) First there was Hong Kong Island Bakery on Spadina, which never the green light (so to speak) after a Conditional Pass about one month ago. Then there was Nak Won Korean Restaurant in North York, which had two inspections within two days, both of which turned up a cool 10 infractions each. And we're not to forget Noah's Ark Tavern on the Danforth, which got a yellow pass with one infraction early in the month, then got another yellow pass this past week with a total of eight. Reconcile that. Here are some of the notable DineSafe blemishes this week.
