Why we love The Flying Pan's hearty breakfast food 

    Our experience at The Flying Pan 

    We discovered The Flying Pan during our random walks in the Salcedo Village area. We were just newly-renting in Makati and we were still excited with the thought of having casual and leisurely dinners in the business district. All of a sudden, we were loving Makati at night. 

    You see, when we were still commuting from Makati to Novaliches daily, we would always eat our food express when we eat out in Makati unless we wanted to be home by midnight. 

    Anyway, what drew us to The Flying Pan were the quirky name and the relatively small interiors which was not intimidating at all. It was a homey ambiance, accentuated with soft lights, that set the mood for a cozy dinner. 

    The Menu 

    The Flying Pan’s menu is an eclectic mix of European and Filipino food. It’s actually quite interesting and also exciting to see those food choices. Even so, the items on the menu were not too diverse to the point that we would not know where to begin or which to taste first.

    What we ordered 

    It was our first time at The Flying Pan so we scanned the menu thoroughly. We came here for dinner but we were drawn by the breakfast food selection. 

    Thai Shrimp salad at The Flying Pan

    We ordered Thai Shrimp Salad (P240), Franco’s Breakfast (P410), crispy pork binagoongan (P310), and extra rice. We also had a salad 

    There were just a few diners during the time we went to The Flying Pan so our food arrived quite fast. 

    We started with the Thai Shrimp Salad, which was good. The greens were fresh and crisp, and the shrimps were plump and sweet. The light dressing also went well with the vegetables and seafood — it definitely did good in whetting up our appetites. 

    Franco's breakfast at The Flying Pan

    But among our orders, we were excited to try The Flying Pan’s Angus sisig in Franco's Breakfast plate and it did not disappoint. It was delicious, flavorful, and really tender. 

    The Angus meat was perfect with the fragrant garlic rice and the fried egg. This Angus sisig is absolutely something that I could have at any time of the day. You really cannot go wrong with breakfast food.

    Crispy pork binagoongan at The Flying Pan

    The Flying Pan’s pork binagoongan, meanwhile, was served interestingly different because the meat was hidden among slices of vegetables. It did not look like the typical pork binagoongan at first but upon closer inspection, there were generous servings of meat underneath the slices of green chili and tomatoes. 

    Pork binagoongan is also one of our favorite dishes so whenever it is available on the menu, we would always try it. The Flying Pan’s version of this Pinoy dish is hearty, slightly crunchy, and savory. You can not have plenty of rice with this. 

    The verdict 

    All in all, we had an awesome meal at The Flying Pan. We have read varied reviews about this restaurant, almost half of it was negative. It was good though that we had a different experience. 

    The Flying Pan was not crowded when we went there so our food was served immediately. Our server was attentive and was very good at giving suggestions. 

    The food was delicious and enjoyable to eat. As for the price, we found it to be commensurate to the quality of the food. In the end, The Flying Pan is one restaurant that I would recommend for its food and ambiance.
