About The Flying Pan - Wan Chai
About the restaurant
Winning awards for breakfast, brunch, and solo dining in Hong Kong, The Flying Pan is quickly ascending the stairway to restaurant heaven thanks to its outlets here in Wan Chai and in Central (with more set to land soon). Incredibly, The Flying Pan offers up its solid American-style cuisine around the clock – 24 hours per day, seven days a week. The Wan Chai Flying Pan in David House along Lockhart Road is no different, giving diners their fix of waffles and pancakes, huevos rancheros and bottomless coffee – all in a retro diner setting – whenever hunger strikes.
Eggs feature heavily on The Flying Pan’s menu, so much so that there are two sections dedicated to eggs as such, another for Mexican huevos rancheros-style eggs, and yet another for omelettes. At this American diner close to Wan Chai station, down Lockhart Road, eggs any style means eggs any style: choose how you’d like them done (over easy/hard, scrambled, poached or sunny side up), choose your bready base (toast, English muffin, French croissant, on pancakes, biscuits, bagels, or cinnamon rolls), add a beverage (coffee, please black as midnight on a moonless night), and a couple of sides and you’re well on your way to a lumberjack breakfast.
Of course, there’s more to The Flying Pan than frying eggs. Pop into The Flying Pan’s Wan Chai outlet and find a selection of Sunrise Sandwiches next to Sunset Burgers, griddled dishes, frittatas, and house specialties like eggs (Benedict, Houssard, Nantucket, tapenade, a la Reine, Florentine… wait, we’re talking eggs again!) and big combination platters set to satisfy the biggest appetites. The largest and most lavish of these properly American-sized combos, unparalleled in Hong Kong, is the 4x4x4 Monster Pan – four eggs, four rashers of bacon, four sausage patties, four sides and toast with a big glass of OJ. Elvis is jealous, The Flying Pan is king.
