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.
