A new late-night destination is on the way to a Chinatown side street:
It's a branch of the Korean fried chicken franchise Bonchon, and it's being built on the ground floor of a new apartment building at 1020 Cherry St. That is across the street from Simply Shabu, the hot-pot specialist.
Bonchon will have a liquor license and is pegged for a September late November opening.
Bonchon's Korean fried chicken - twice-fried and bathed in soy-garlic or hot sauce - is much crispier than the Colonel's. Bonchon means "my hometown," according to founder Jinduk Seh.
