The restaurant, located at 402 8 St. S.W., had dozens of issues identified on the May 7 closure order.

The identified issues revolve largely around sanitation and safety, as well as an inability to prove some product sources.

Mentioned in the food handling permit suspension order were previous work orders, closure orders and a compliance review hearing.

"Provide evidence to the satisfaction of an Alberta Health Services, executive officer that all prepared, processed and displayed food is from an approved source. Provide a list of all food suppliers and provide a copy of all the receipts/invoices for all meat products from the past six months to the executive officer;

"Comply fully with the closure order issued on May 7, 2024."
