When you're dining out, you shouldn't have to worry about putting your health at risk. But certain restaurant violations and food choices could be doing just that. Learn the secrets restaurants keep that could be making you sick and the small changes you can make to protect yourself.
Secret: A dirty bathroom means a dirty kitchen.
Although it may seem counterintuitive to associate a restaurant’s bathroom with their kitchen, these two places often share the same level of cleanliness. If a restaurant can’t be bothered to keep the toilets and sinks clean, then imagine what their refrigeration and workspaces look like in the kitchen.
Solution: Do not eat at a restaurant where the bathroom trashcan is more than half full. Is there toilet paper? Is there soap? No? This means the bathrooms are not being regularly monitored and cleaned.
