Popular Mexican restaurant shut down by Toronto health inspectors

A popular Mexican restaurant and grocer selling tacos, enchiladas, and quesadillas was forced to close down on Monday because of an insect problem. 

Latin World, the tiny little market in Bloordale Village, re-opened yesterday two days after failing their Public Health inspection. 

According to the DineSafe report, they had four infractions. Their biggest offense was failing to protect the restaurant against health hazards, in this case: bugs.

Other infractions included failing to protect against the harbouring of pests, and not sanitizing their utensils in the correct chlorine solution. 

The restaurant has always been known to tight on space, and pretty hot without A.C. in the summer. Still, it's pretty hard to beat daily $1 tacos deals.
