This Week on DineSafe: Ginger, What A Bagel, Freshii, An Sibin Pub, Ebi Sushi Izakaya, Gobo Sushi

DineSafe inspectors closed down two Toronto restaurants this week. Ginger on Yonge Street and What A Bagel on Spadina were both briefly shuttered for failure to prevent insect infestations. Two closures in a week is actually quite rare, so perhaps kitchen cleaners are guilty of taking some early holidays (something one can't accuse the food police of, apparently).
