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...

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

The food was very good my husband had the eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and said it was amazing. I had the pancakes with ricotta cheese, cream and berry compote. The pancakes are dense but tasty. We went with our 1 year old son they had highchairs and made him a plain pancake too. Its a bit pricey but we... More
