What is it?

Who is it?
The man behind Uncle Don’s is the don himself, Chef Don Daniel Theseira, or you can just call him Uncle Don for short as the restaurant name suggests. You can catch him sitting at the storefront chatting up friends and patrons while enjoying a beer and a cigarette which he won’t hesitate to put down just to welcome you in or thank you for coming.
The Filipino dishes on the menu if you feel like having Asian food but are bored with the usual suspects. Many restaurants often forget this neighbouring country when building a menu so this would be a nice change. Try the Chicken Arroz Caldo (RM8.80) which is chicken congee cooked with ginger, garlic and fish sauce. For more meaty grub, try the Sizzling Sisig (RM10.80) which is grilled pork innards seasoned with lime and chili peppers usually eaten with rice or on its own as a bar snack.
With your best group of friends. The familiar and comfortable setting is the best place to catch up with old friends you’ve known since the hey day. And by all means, grab a pint! Uncle Don’s serves cold and fresh draught beer dispensed at -2°C degrees into frozen mugs everyday, all night long for RM8.80.
Considering the fancy setting, you’ll find that the menu prices at Uncle Don’s are very affordable. You can have a meal for lower than RM10 and as high as RM20.
