Sadly the institution known as The Flying Pan in Soho where you could get a full cooked breakfast 24 hours a day, will close this Sunday at 11pm. Thinking back, we had so many great times there with friends that are still in Hong Kong as well as those that have now gone overseas.
The place will be missed, but good to know that their Wanchai location will remain. In a statement posted on Facebook on the 9th March 2020:
These past few months have been tremendously challenging for Hong Kong’s hospitality trade. The Coronavirus has been the final nail in the coffin for many an eatery in Soho. We are no exception.
It's with a heavy heart we must announce the closure of our Central location, effective Sunday, March 15th 2020. With shortened hours of 7am – 11pm.
We know many of your have some fond memories of The Flying Pan and we know we will be missed. Please stop by and sign our farewell wall and say goodbye this week. Free coffee, all week at Old Bailey.
Hong Kong, words are not enough to express to you how grateful we are for the 16 years you let us serve you. It has been a pleasure. Thank you.
Wanchai is not closing and remains open 24 hours.
