Brampton has been hit with a major restaurant closure and another conditional pass this week. Check out the details below.

Singapore Garden 

The doors to Brampton’s Singapore Garden restaurant are sealed shut, and there is no indication yet if the popular eatery will re-open.

Peel Health conducted a routine food safety inspection on April 26th, and the outcomes were far from positive. Singapore Garden was closed for:

  • Failure to keep hazardous food out of danger zone temperatures
  • Failure to store food and prevent contamination and/or adulteration
  • Lack of proper maintenance of food contact surfaces and equipment
  • Failure to maintain mechanical dishwasher
  • Lack of proper maintenance of non-food contact surfaces
  • Inadequate protection against pests
  • Lack of maintenance and sanitation of mechanical ventilation and
  • Lack of good housekeeping
  • Failure to maintain the food premises and keep it free from any condition that is a health hazard, according to the Health Protection and Promotion Act

Despite its legacy for big portions and tasty dishes, the Singapore Garden had been riddled with negative rumours about restaurant maintenance over the last few years. The restaurant’s last routine inspection on December 8th allowed them a pass, but the bill of health wasn’t entirely clean:

  • Failure to keep hazardous food out of danger zone temperatures
  • Failure to store food and prevent contamination and/or adulteration
  • Lack of proper maintenance of non-food contact surfaces
  • Failure to have at least one food handler/manager with a valid food handler certification

The restaurant is likely scheduled for re-inspection this week but remains closed as of this writing.

Royal Kabob 

For the second week in a row, Royal Kabob received a conditional pass at its re-inspection by Peel Health. The conditional pass is because of:

  • Failure to store food to prevent contamination and/or adulteration
  • Failure to maintain-non food contact surfaces and keep them clean, sanitary and in good condition
  • Failure to adequately protect against pests
  • Bad housekeeping practices

Good news: Gino’s Pizza 

On a happier note, Gino’s Pizza on Main passed its first routine food safety inspection since opening. The last two routine checks resulted in conditional passes, followed by a full pass upon re-inspection. As a popular pizzeria in the city, we’re happy that the restaurant has adopted more safety measures for health and food preparation.
