Uncle's (Hawaiian Grinds)
The other day I was told about a new restaurant that specialized in Hawaiian cuisine located in Fallston, MD. Hmmm, very interesting Hawaiian food!. Great!. I've been a resident of Bel Air, MD for 15 years and this is one of the few new interesting restaurant in the area.
My wife and daughter were very excited about trying this restaurant. The restaurant is located at 2315 Belair Rd, Ste 2B, Fallston, MD 21047, phone#: 443-966-3999 and website is www.eatatuncles.com.
Here is my impressions:
-When I walked into the restaurant I felt like I was entering a tropical restaurant somewhere in Hawaii. The decor was simple but exotic at the same time. with colors of white and aqua green upholstery. We were greeted immediately and seated in a booth. The restaurant has been opened for about 2 weeks and waitresses were dressed in Hawaii decor skirts and shirt. The atmosphere is relaxed and not noisy. We went on a Saturday at about 1 PM.
The waitress was very cordial and professional. The recipe covered an assortment of Hawaiian and Asian fare. The non alcoholic drinks were truly exotic and my daughter and wife choose 2 different drinks. Very unique flavor and very tasty.
I ordered the Limpia roll with marinated pulled pork inside. It was crispy, very large, flavorful along with a dipping sauce, enough for 3 people. Simply delicious!
saw the salads but there was so much to try, I will definitely try it at another visit but they indeed seemed very interesting.
I ordered the Loco Moco (traditional Hawaiian), a beef burger freshly made (the taste and texture was fresh off the grill), over rice with lots of brown gray and a scoop of macaroni salad on the side. Delicious. I ordered marinated sashimi (tuna) called POKE (pronounced POO-KEE). Not bad but the sashimi texture seemed different, not sure if the marinade changes the texture of the sashimi. I had to try the spam sushi. Yes spam. A very popular staple in Hawaii. It was a slice of spam between sushi rice and wrapped around with Nori (seaweed). Simply delicious. Spam provided a little saltiness and sushi rice provided sweet slightly vinegar flavor, a great combination.
My daughter had the fried chicken Katsu strips and she loved it. My wife tried the teriyaki chicken and she loved the taste.
It was a breath of fresh air to visit a very unique restaurant. The menu was very interesting.
Atmosphere creates a tropical feeling with simple decor.
Staff was friendly and professional and willing to please.
Food presentation was colorful and pretty.
Menu items are a mix of Hawaiian and Japanese but would encourage trying the Hawaiian fare as many may never had tried it before. If your used to the teriyaki thats fine but if you like sashimi, try the marinated POKE.
Price is fair for what is being served.
Nice place for first date or for a parents nite out.
There is no delivery but carry out is provided.
RATING: VERY GOOD
