Details

  • Daily, 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
Uncle Fung Borneo Eatery is an Asian restaurant in Long Beach and Buena Park. The menu is small, with encyclopedia-like descriptions of each dish’s origin. Ayam goreng penyet is an Indonesian-spiced fried chicken that’s described as having more of a hearty, halfway-crunchy fry than the familiar shattering crisp of southern fried chicken. The Bornean hokkian mee is a springy egg-noodle dish that is served dry, garnished with barbecue pork, crumbled chicken soy, mushrooms, mustard greens and a blanket of fried shallots. On each table is an unmarked red squeeze bottle of sambal terasi matang (shrimp-paste chile sauce), which you should use liberally to add a pungent kick—but avoid speaking with anyone for the rest of the day because your breath will reek of it.
