This Week on DineSafe: Mother's Dumplings, Korea House, Oliver & Bonacini, Dumpling King

Holy mother of dumplings were there a lot of yellow-carded eateries to sort through in order to find the top offenders this week on DineSafe. Speaking of which, Mother's Dumplings, everyone's favourite Chinatown lunch go-to graces this week's list with eight infractions. None of them are crucial, so that's what you can tell your co-workers when you try to convince them to still have your Friday office lunch there. Ottoman on Bloor got yellow-carded not once but twice, two days in a row!

The first day they had three crucial infractions, and the next they managed to shave that down to two - both of which were difficulties maintaining proper food temperatures. We've also got Bryan's BBQ racking up nine demerit points, which is a little freaky if you ask me, especially at a place where you cook your own meat. And there's more, like Golden Griddle, Korea House, and Oliver & Bonacini -- all drawn and quartered below.
