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

We had brunch there and the menu had some options that I had not seen before. We will return and would recommend for brunch.

The placed seemed nice when we came in, kind of laid back with a homely feel. The breakfast was ok, they put some extra vegetables with the eggs and bam! There is your over priced meal. I think it may be because it's Itaewon. I tried that place twice in a year and both times were not a great meal.
