This week on DineSafe: Caribbean House, Fox and Fiddle, Ely's Fine Food, Golden Star, Hot Dog Express, La Rosa, Shawarma Grill House, What a Bagel

This week on DineSafe, a hot dog cart outside the Student Centre at York University was shut down for "gross unsanitary conditions." This, of course, is only bad news for those who weren't scared off by the street meat exposĂŠ that made the rounds earlier this summer. For everyone else, there are a few other places to add to your wary list this week, including La Rosa Chilena Bakery with an impressive 14 health infractions, and Golden Star restaurant on Jane with a slightly more modest tally of 12. Here's a look at some of the DineSafe offenders this week.
