Looks like there's more to the story for the closing of Master Mix Hot Pot.
When they originally closed they had a green sign and you could still buy Bubble tea from street level or also go downstairs to shoot some pool, if desired.
Now the whole building top to bottom has been forced to close, Bubble tea, (street level) pool hall (downstairs) and all!!
WOW! I wonder what went wrong?
The red sign suggests that the restaurant (upstairs) was forced to close, even though it already closed long before now.
(note the "pass" date last February.)
I hope no one got sick drinking a bubble tea from there, lol...if that was any part of the problem.
(note the "pass" date from last March...this place had no yellow warning...it's just GONE!!)
Yeah, weird. I tried to go to Master Mix twice when it was closed (no Red rating) and there was just the owner guy sitting up there reading newspapers. The bubble tea place was still going strong.

DineSafe shows nothing on the Red rating - and the Red ratings says closed from the Medical Officer of Health. Something serious must have went down there over the last month.

I usually go to Morals.
I still say Chine or Mongolian Sheep hot pot are better places than Morals any day. (for that price range)

Master Mix was my "go to" spot for hot pot. I would eat there 2-3 times per month in the winter. Too bad - I really liked that place.
Yikes. I found this:

MASTER MIX, 261 SPADINA AVE.


Restaurant

One or more significant infractions were observed under the Food Premises Regulation during an inspection on Feb. 7.

Operator fail to properly remove liquid waste

That was from February. Not recently. They are no longer on the DineSafe site at all.

Oddly enough, I rode by last week on my scooter and saw the same guy who was sitting upstairs reading newspapers when they were closed coming out of the place an locking up. No idea what is going on there.

If they are selling bubble tea, they are doing so illegally.
