According to the draft ordinance of Quezon City 5th District Councilor Allan Butch Francisco, the city’s food spots should be rated based on cleanliness.
Jeannette I. Andrade of the Philippine Daily Inquirer reports that "Under Francisco’s proposed measure, restaurants and other food joints are to be rated by the local health department into: ’A,’ meaning it has passed all maximum requirements as provided by the Sanitary Code and existing ordinances; ’B,’ it has passed the minimum requirement in the sanitary inspection; and ’C,’ it failed to comply with all sanitary requirements."
The report also noted: "The local health office conducts a sanitary inspection every six months to check on, among others, the construction and maintenance of the restaurant or food joint; the provision of toilets and hand-washing facilities; and food handling."
