Bonchon’s Jersey City outpost is permanently closing. Located at 172 Newark Avenue, in the heart of the Jersey City Pedestrian Plaza, the fast-casual eatery will close on Sunday, August 28.
The South Korean-born chain has been a part of downtown Jersey City for roughly 12 years. Bonchon double fries its chicken to deliver a crispy exterior with juicy insides. Although it’s known mostly for its fried chicken, Bonchon’s menu also offers popcorn shrimp, bibimbap, japchae, tteokbokki, and chicken katsu. No word on who will take over its space.
