What's in a name? In the case of Uncle Yu's Indian Theme Restaurant, everything and nothing. 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 tuned to ESPN for football and basketball (in season), while stinky tofu, duck tongues, hot pots, pig intestine and much tamer food choices are consumed alongside copious amounts of Taiwan Beer.
