DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Westown Chinese, Sushi Island, Amaya Express, Falafel House, Marble Slab Creamery

We've got ourselves another closure this week. The Junction location of Westown Chinese Food clocked in with a total of 12 infractions. Disappointing conditional passes were also given out to Booster Juice (where I'm forced to wonder what's actually in that Funky Monkey smoothie), Marble Slab Creamery and the Fox & Fiddle. And, Amaya Express, a repeat DineSafe offender, is once again on the hit list for a variety of violations. Come on, guys.
