DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: A La Turque, Brick Street Bakery, Delimark Cafe, Oriental Harvest, Watts Restaurant

This week on DineSafe reveals no red cards, but boy oh boy do we have a winner loser in the form of A La Turque restaurant at 558 Church Street. With a whopping 18 infractions — three of which fall into the crucial category — it's surprising that inspectors didn't deem the place worthy of closure. From a general failure to maintain the premises to the inadequate temperature control, the place sounds like a veritable horror show. But, hey, that's what the inspections are for — at least now they'll have to clean up their act. For plenty more use of the word "failure" read on, but please refrain from eating while doing so.
