Just barely a month old, Uncle Don’s, located at SS2 Petaling Jaya is making waves within the PJ community. Located on the same row as Go Thai, it is pretty impossible to miss the huge signage.
Helmed by Chef Don Theseira with the backing of years and years of culinary experience, Uncle Don’s dishes out an array of main courses, from local flavours such as Malaccan Portuguese Assam Fish and Devil’s Curry all the way to western cuisine such as Pork Burger, Lamb Chop and Spaghetti Bolognaise.
All ingredients used in the dishes here are of premium quality, and the spices for Chef Don’s curries and sauces for western cuisine are blended in house. Uncle Don’s place is packed to the brim every single night, thanks to the huge variety of main meals and cheap draft beer. Currently they have an ongoing promotion, a mug of frozen beer going for only RM 8.80 nett.
Roasted Mushroom Soup [RM 7.80]
With mushroom bits finely grinded and the soup seemingly brought to a reduction, this soup is a creamy and rather good way to open up the tastebuds.
Wild Boar Curry [RM 10.80]
One of the main signature dishes on the local portion of the menu, Uncle Don serves up a brilliant concoction of spices in a claypot, with tender wild boar cubes thrown in, exuding considerable heat as well. The gNOMes dug in with glee.
Sizzling Sambal Petai [RM 14.80]
Probably the best sauce among the whole lot we had. Petai and a generous serving of fresh, juicy prawns served on a sizzling hotplate was something the gNOMes couldn’t resist. With a mixture of capsicum, onions, and what seems like a tomato base spice blend, don’t let that fool you. It is deceptively spicy.
Pork Rib Curry [RM 12.80]
Porky fans rejoice. Although not as glamorous as its wilder brother, the generous serving of pork ribs made good friends with a familiar curry paste to bring the gNOMes happiness.
Verdict : One of the restaurants around with a good balance of vibe and taste which is also friendly to the wallet. A great place to hang out with friends over a cheap pint as well!
