Frying Pan Food Truck’s New Brick-and-Mortar Location in the West End Opens September 24

Be one of the first customers and you can get their bestseller for only $5.

Starting September 24, the Korean-inspired food truck Frying Pan will now be serving up their beloved chicken sandwiches and outrageously delicious bulgogi fries at a new brick-and-mortar location in the West End. No need to hunt down their food truck (but don’t fret, it is still operating!)—what used to be a Fatburger has transformed into the new home of one of Vancouver’s (and my!) favourite locations for fried chicken.

Frying Pan OGs will find their faves on the menu, like the famous Nashville-meets-Korea-style hot chicken sandwich—which, to obnoxiously quote myself from a past editors’ draft, “combines the two best types of fried chicken into the sandwich of your dreams.” I vehemently stand behind that statement, and by my new suggestion which is to try their chicken tacos, which take that dream-worthy chicken and throw it into a tortilla that just so happens to have a mozzarella cheese skirt. And spicy mayo. And slaw. And pickles. I mean, come on.

At the new location, Frying Pan will also be releasing an array of Korean-inspired fare like the new Pa Dak Sando (chicken breast, soy sauce, mayo, pickle, slaw, green onion and chili powder on a toasted bun) and vegan-friendly dishes like their new veggie sando (vegan patty made of yam, potato, onions and carrots and topped with vegan mayo, pickles and slaw).

In honour of their opening, on September 24 the first 100 guests can snag the crowd-fave Classic Crunch Chicken Sando for only $5. Doors open at 11 AM, so you might want to block off the whole morning just to be safe.
