When it comes to epic, craving-worthy, stacked fried chicken sandwiches, The Frying Pan is one of Vancouver’s best bets. Now the food truck and restaurant operation is focused on a new space in the West End.
The Frying Pan will open a new physical location at 1101 Denman St on Saturday, September 24.
The West End address was a Fatburger for a long time before its brief run as Puro Chile in 2021.
Husband and wife duo Chef Jacob and Sunny Jung revved our engines for their menu of Korean-inspired fried chicken dishes when The Frying Pan truck started rolling in 2017. The truck’s show-stopping always been its epic fried chicken sandwiches, including the hot version, which is a massive bite from Nashville to Korea, thanks to an inventive fusion of ingredients.
In December 2020, the Jungs opened The Frying Pan restaurant at 60 W Cordova St in Gastown. The last day of opening of this restaurant will be Sunday September 18th.
What to expect at The Frying Pan’s new West End location
As The Frying Pan turns five, celebrations are centered around Denman’s new restaurant – although the OG Frying Pan food truck will remain on the corner of Burrard and Pender.
The new restaurant is fully licensed and will feature frying pan favorites as well as new dishes. This means that in addition to their loaded fries and huge chicken sandos, you’ll now see new Korean-inspired dishes like Pa Dak Sando (chicken breast, soy sauce, homemade mayonnaise, pickle, coleslaw, green onion, chili powder, toast) . The menu will also offer more vegetarian and vegan options.
To start, the new frying pan on Denman will have a fun promotion, offering its classic Crispy Chicken Sando (fried boneless thigh, coleslaw, homemade mayonnaise) for just $5 each to the first 100 guests of the new location (limit of one sandwich per customer) starting at 11 a.m. on opening day (Sept. 24).
Frying Pan’s new Denman location will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
