Dinesafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Annex Live, Best Choice Food, Darvish Restaurant, Hokkaido Sushi, Kyoshou Japanese, On The Rocks, Piazzetta Trattoria, Quick Pita

This week on DineSafe it was insects all around. And not in a, "hey, that's an exotic menu option" type way, but in a "someone alert the health inspector" type of fashion. And someone did. Three spots were shut down this week including Best Choice Food Centre in North York, Kyoshou Japanese Restaurant, and On the Rocks down on Front, along with a handful of other restaurants that passed by the skins of their proverbial teeth. Though those teeth are probably due for another cleaning or two. Here are some of the notable mentions on DineSafe this week.
