Uncle Yu's in San Gabriel is a collision of cultures. The deeply Taiwanese menu offers hot pot, mapo tofu and all manner of grilled meats and veggies, but in a sports bar setting. The large TVs are usually tuned to ESPN while diners snack on duck tongue under the fake foliage that hangs over the wooden tables. The rest of the restaurant is covered in decidedly un-PC Native-American paraphernalia, from headdresses to arrowheads. The walls have a faux log cabin look, while lanterns hang from the ceiling. Uncle Yu must have certainly been a unique individual.
This is one of my favorite stops. A very cheesy looking sports bar with long tables and a dozen tv's showing ball games. But all is not as it seems. The food here seems to be straight from Taiwan. I've over heard several people commenting on it was nice to have food they get in Taiwan. The menu is about 8 pages. Dozens of different fried rice dishes. Various hot pots. Almost any animal or vegetable steamed, baked or fried.
My favorites; Honey red tea, fried stinky tofu, pork fried rice and any of the spicy beef or lamb dishes. Start off with the basil boiled peanuts and the salt and pepper soy beans.
It doesn't open until 6pm and there will be a line. But this will be one of your favorite places as well.

Waitresses clad in red tank tops, black shorts and UGGs, and sporting a feather in their hair, cheerfully greet you in Mandarin upon entry at the place nicknamed "the Taiwanese Hooters." Faux Western in decor, with fake log tables, wolf skin and faux Native American art, the establishment formerly confusingly known simply as the Indian is kitschy, loud and boisterous. Large screens on the walls are... More »
