City inspectors shut Bonchon Chicken, 123 Brighton Ave. last Wednesday after finding a host of violations, most notably, a dripping sewage line in a kitchen ceiling and improper pickling and storage of cabbage and radishes, both of which were the sort of thing that could easily spread food-borne microbes:
There is a smell of sewage in the basement and a waste line in the ceiling is leaking in the prep kitchen. ... They are making pickled cabbage and pickled radish at room temperature. This fermentation is a specialized process and requires a HACCP plan and variance. ... Manager needs to cease operations when there is an imminent health hazard.
Also, no kitchen sinks had soap dispensers.
ISD yesterday cleared the restaurant to re-open after a re-inspection found all the problems had been fixed, including training workers to wash their hands properly.
