Hong's Chinese Dumplings, which opened October 21 on Pearl Street in Burlington, is temporarily closed.
The restaurant needs to address several issues associated with its opening, including a faulty payment system, owner Hong Yu said, with her husband serving as a translator. The restaurant plans to install a new system.
Hong's closed Thursday and expects to reopen on November 8 or 9, according to Yu. "We made the decision that we weren't ready to open, but we will be open very shortly," she said, through her husband.
