Grilligan's is a little BBQ/Mini Donut shack located on the famous Fisherman's Wharf in Victoria.
The first thing you notice about this little place is it's neat exterior appearance. However you soon notice the man who runs the take-out stand because he does not appear to be clean or tidy in his personal appearance. His clothes look dirty and he where's an old dirty looking ball cap.
Then when I watch him serve customers, he does not wash his hands prior to serving them, nor does he wear any sort of sanitary gloves.
His main attraction is mini-donuts. But he does not serve them fresh to the customer per say, but allows them to sit for long periods of time under a small heat lamp bulb. I witnessed him go from handling cash to preparing a bag of donuts for a customer. He did not wash his hands or take any sanitary measures prior to sticking his hand all the way into a white paper donut bag to open in up before using tongs to put donuts into it.
I did take the risk about a month ago to try his mini donuts, and even though he stuck his dirty unwashed hand inside the paper bag before filling it up.......I was starving and wanted to see if they were any good. They were cold, and I could tell the oil they were cooked in was dirty and old by the flavor of the donuts.
Based on what I witnessed on several occasion visiting Fisherman's Wharf, I personally will not give my business to this establishment based on the plainly and openly visible poor food handling practices demonstrated by the man who works/owns it.
