This week on DineSafe: Amaya Express, Dumpling Queen, Honest Ed's, La Tortilleria, Rock Lobster

DineSafe didn't hand out any red cards this week but of the yellow cards distributed, more than a few were repeat offenders -- not to mention there were a lot of crucial infractions doled out. Amaya Express and Honest Ed's were both cited for inadequate pest control, for instance. And La Tortilleria racked up two crucial infractions for lazy hand washing and failing to maintain foods at an acceptable temperature.
