Uncle John’s Ham & Eggs Closes Indefinitely
I was pretty excited to read about the downtown Chinese-food-over-eggs breakfast/lunch staple Uncle John’s Ham & Eggs (and the soon to open Uncle John’s Cafe) on Dig Lounge last week. Sadly, when I headed over yesterday to try their infamous Chinese roast pork over eggs I was greeted by a shuttered gate and this incredibly disappointing sign. (Cue overhead shot with me yelling “Nooooooooooooooo!”) I guess the saving grace is that Uncle John’s Cafe will (supposedly) be opening a week from Monday on S. Grand btw. 8+9th.
In the meantime you can head around the corner to the terrible (but oh so loveable) Chu’s Chinese Kitchen, or do what we did… get in your car and drive to Starry Kitchen in the water court (validated parking in the lot on Olive btw. 3+4th). Today is the last day for their crunchy egg roll wrapper stuffed nom nom pork wrap. (Yes, you read that right.)
