This joint has been in the same location for more than two decades and is one of the most authentic Taiwanese restaurants outside of Taiwan. It is a family-owned business with a small but welcoming staff. The owner works the grill while his wife takes care of the business side of things. Most of the dishes are “xiao chis” (literal translation: small eats), the Taiwanese version of tapas. Try their fried rice—it is one of the most popular dishes. They have amazing fried calamari with salt and pepper on the side, delicious chicken egg rolls and clams that are sautéed with a perfect blend of sauces.

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.

First-time patrons are easy to spot. They all seem to display similar reactions: The head scratching, the bemusement, the quizzical expressions. The unacquainted try to decipher why a restaurant that serves authentic Taiwanese cuisine would choose to cloak itself in a surreal atmosphere of American Indian/Yukon cabin kitsch. Uncle Yu's Indian Theme Restaurant occupies a busy corner of a standard, parking challenged strip-mall. But step within its doors and the experience is anything but typical. Scantily-clad waitresses in moccasins and feathered headdresses scramble between communal, rustic, wood tables surrounded by faux-timbered walls, adorned with buffalo heads and raccoon pelts. Sprinkle in some colorful Chinese paper lanterns and clusters of twinkling blue lights, and you're left with an ambiance that's sure to impress. Uncle Yu's reflects a recent trend in the city of Taipei, which has seen a growing popularity for strangely-themed restaurants. One hospital-theme establishment dispenses wine and beer from suspended IV bags, and nurses/servers deliver sake from over sized hypodermic needles. Patrons at Uncle Yu's love the pitchers of cheap Asian beer. Combine them with a menu packed with Taiwanese bar-style delicacies, as well as the shared table seating, and you have a festive scene that some locals have labeled 'that funky Taiwanese beer pub'. Without a doubt this is a restaurant tailor-made for groups and parties.
