Review: Uncle Don’s, SS2 Petaling Jaya

Hey guys! 

Sorry for not updating this space more often; things have just been super busy. The editor was on compassionate leave, so I was manning the fort alone, and these two weeks are crucial coz we’re closing our magazine pages. Between that, handling the digital side of things, working on a pitch AND my part time gig, you can imagine how crazy it has been. D’:

The JW and I were in SS2 PJ and she suggested Uncle Don’s for dinner. There’s an outlet in Puchong as well and it’s always super packed, so I was quite curious as to why it’s so popular. The food is a mix of Western and local specialties, so you can get burgers and pastas, as well as rice/noodle dishes.

Was not too impressed with the service. We got there around 7PM and the tables inside were already filled up. Despite seeing us looking around for a table outside, the waiters stood around chatting with each other, completely ignoring us. When we found a table, it was awhile before they finally came to give us the menu.

Ordered the Vanilla milkshake; turned out to be a sorry excuse for a beverage. I know you call it ice-cream, but damn… it was mostly ice and no cream lol. And as you can see pic, the portion was abysmal. After stirring it around, it didn’t even take up 3/4 of the mug.  I guess it was a blessing in disguise that the portion was small because the drink was tasteless. Sad milkshake, sad Eris.

I absolutely adore buffalo wings – so I was really excited when I saw they had ‘Giant Buffalo Wings’ on their menu.

…. Introducing regular wings with a spicy sauce! If there was a buffalo wing dry rub on it, I couldn’t taste it. 😦 Taste-wise it wasn’t too bad; I was just disappointed because I was expecting the sauce-coated kind. Sigh.

After two misses, the burger fared much better. I had the fish burger (Above) while JW had the lamb. They were stacked, humongous and messy – and I liked how homemade the patties tasted – none of that frozen, processed sht. Also topped with a generous amount of oozy cheese and slices of pineapple for a sweet/tangy kick. The fries were meh but edible.

JW’s lamb burger.

All in all, a meh dining experience. Burger was good but other items not so; and the service was a turn off. How. Many. Times. Have. I. Said. Bad. Customer. Service. Turns. Customers. Away. Restos, get your sht together and train your staff properly.  Not sure why it’s so packed (maybe it’s the beer! ), so you probably don’t need my business anyway. shrugs

Food: burger 7.5/10, other items meh, SAD VANILLA MILKSHAKE 😦 .

Service: 3/10 are you being paid to chat and ignore customers when you clearly saw them looking for a table?

Ambience: I actually like the ambience inside, although we couldn’t get a table there. Good for drinks and casual get togethers. 7/10. 

Price: Surprisingly affordable. You can get fried rice etc. for as low as RM10.
