Mmmm, vermin...

File under: , ,

This article was on the front page of today's DomPost. And to think that I almost ate there once, only to be turned away by the fact that (contrary to their sign) they're one of the few Asian restaurants that's not BYO. So we took our bottle of Riesling off to good old Tulsi, where they've been known to serve goat, but never mouse.

This shouldn't put you off going to Taste Bugs Buds, since as the article says, the incident was way back in June and they now have "a clean bill of health". Besides, some people pay good money for invertebrate cuisine.

Seems a bit daft to me that Wellington City Council doesn't have a website with all the hygiene inspection reports posted on it. This has been a hot topic in the UK since its Freedom of Information Act (the equivalent of the OIA here) came into force at the beginning of the year (22 years after NZ...).

Camden Council's page.

Greenwich Council


The progress in the UK was largely inspired by examples in the USA, such as this one in San Francisco and the one forNew York.

There's also an interesting article about the company that built the NY site. They tied it in with mapping data to help people find the right place to eat...
