Weston restaurants blitzed: few spared

Weston restaurants took a withering set of inspections from Toronto Public Health last month, and many came out of them with green cards but bruised. In order of decreasing general yuckiness:

China China Express, 2145 Weston China China needs to slow down and

  • Clean the toilets
  • Store food on pallets
  • Maintain rooms
  • Provide equipment
  • Wash up

Cho Ming Restaurant, 1511 Jane, needs to

  • Clean up
  • Store food on shelves

Subway (at the Crossroads) needs to wash equipment

Jolly II, at the Crossroads, needs to protect food from being contaminated

Kitchen King Jerk, 2079 Lawrence, needs to maintain and sanitize, and wash up.


King’s Delight, 1658 Jane, isn’t maintaining and sanitizing well enough.

Ritz Caribbean Foods, 1542 Jane need to do the same.



Toronto Public Health sweeps through Weston

Toronto Public Health seems to have gone for a stroll up Weston Road. Most of the food-serving businesses passed comfortably, but two establishments took yellow cards for being, well, barf-inducingly disgusting.

Seif Halal food market at 2371 Weston was carded for not ensuring food safety, not providing hot and cold running water, not having towels in the food area, not having a thermometer in the food area, allowing employees to wear filthy clothing while preparing food and for, finally, not producing the food safety report—which was, ironically, a green-card pass. (No longer!)

China China restaurant was practically Michelinian in comparison. They only had trouble… let’s see… using soap, cleaning the toilet, keeping hair out of the food, and keeping the food off the ground. No big deal, really.
