just go and have brunch here

Went here half of March, and it is just good here. Atmosphere is great, so is the service. Food was a little sweet, the Grapefruit and something drink was great! It is not cheap, but totally worth going here for a relaxing good Brunch.

It's been awhile since my trip to Seoul, but Trip Advisor suggested I review this place, so I am. I had the berry french toast (or pancakes??) and I remember hubby had something with a middle-eastern flair. It was all fantastic! Kinda pricey, but so good. It's tucked away from the busy road a bit in a cute location. I... More

In our oppinion, this place is not what it used to be. First time we went, the veggies were fresh and lush. Which was not the case in our last visit: as they were mushy and not crunchy; the sandwich bread was soggy, and the avocado smoothie was all banana and no avocado. This was a disapointment since the prices... More

While everyone has a favorite Flying Pan location, I prefer Itaewon to Gangnam. And judging from the number of diners who visit on a regular basis, I am not alone! The menu appeals to the Western palate, to be sure, featuring a mouth-watering selection of brunch and lunch-type food. From crepes, waffles and omelets to soups du jour and fresh... More

The Flying Pan Blue has a superb location down a few stairs from the street immediately to the right of the Hamilton Hotel in Itaewon, Seoul. This means it is steps from the Itaewon Metro exit in front of the Hamilton. It is a small and charming space. Full breakfast and gourmet coffee. A friend loved the waffles and another... More

My family frequented the Flying Pan a few summers ago when I was staying in the area for a few weeks, and we went back recently... it was just as good as I had remembered. The savory and sweet french toast options are delicious, and my husband always seems to come back to the eggs avocado. Cute decor, attentive staff,... More

This was my second time to Flying Pan. My first time was in Gangnam a month ago and everything was delicious and cooked perfectly. This time around, my friend and I visited the Itaewon location because she wanted the Salmon Eggs Benedict. When she got it, the hollandaise sauce was like room temperature salted butter. Not a sauce. Nothing viscose... More

Eggs Benedict and a smoothie for $25?? French Toast for $18, Smoothies for $6-$8. Breakfast shouldn't be this expensive. Steer Clear. My friend and I went on a Sunday morning, seeking a hearty breakfast after a night of Dr. Who revelry. I heard about this place through the grapevine so decided to give it a try. When I opened the...

The best brunch in town ! A lively atmosphere with great music and a very hip style interior design, the perfect place to rise and shine in Seoul!

We were expecting to have a delicious brunch with a friend, were ready to pay a lot. Picked up the best from the menu as we thought but the food turned out to be terrible! Large portions - yes. But we didn't eat even a half of each dish up although each costed about 40k won. If you are big... More

Staying in Itaewon

Neighborhood Profile
Itaewon
Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison, Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to quickly become one of Seoul’s hottest areas. Here, trendy international restaurants dot the area alongside hip lounge bars and some of Seoul’s hottest club venues. After dark, Itaewon comes into its own as one of Seoul’s top party scenes. The crowd is a fascinating patchwork of all backgrounds and identities, including a small but thriving Muslim community (centered on Korea’s sole mosque), the LGBT community (with a string of popular bars and clubs), and a wide range of ethnicities and cultures scattered around. Those seeking a quiet respite should head towards the eastern end, in Hannam-dong, which not only has one of Korea’s best art museums, the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, but plenty of mid-range to upscale restaurants and cafes.
