Starting your day with such a big breakfast is customary among filipinos. Every once in a while we indulge in such yumminess. The staff were friendly, the food was great. We took our leftovers and had it for lunch at the airport while we wait for our flight.

An American Filipino Surprise thanks to my older sister who told me this place in Chicago. The Tocino Breakfast was worth it. They give you hearty portions of Tocino and eggs plus 1 complementary Lugaw (or Aarroz caldo). best of all It is not that expensive either. For Older Filipinos or families that bring they can eat a fish Breakfast called Bagus (Milkfish) or a combination of other rich filled Filipino American Breakfast dishes all served also with Fried Rice all Under $16 to $12. Also called Topsy Log Bangos Log (thus Log meaning abbreviation of Egg in Filipino language, Tagalog). It is a must try if you want to experience True American Filipino or Filipino American Breakfast. Open super early 6 am to 7 pm except Sundays open 6 am to 3 pm. They serve the Filipino Breakfast for Dinner or Lunch too. Also serve American Breakfast and Lunch dishes too that are non-Filipino (or Non Pinoy) related.

Whenever we are in Chicago, we eat at Uncle Mike's. You can get Spam and rice, Filipino breakfast with tocino- marinated pork shoulder (yum!) or longaniza (Filipino sausage) with eggs, garlic fried rice and tomato sarsa! It's all good! They have American breakfast too. You get complimentary chicken rice soup- think congee to open the palate or if you are lucky chocolate rice porridge.

Good food and really good people. We stop in when in the area due to predictable good food. Only thing missing is an omlette with sausage. We'll be back again.

Uncle Mike’s Place delivered on our expectations on Filipino breakfast fare, and friendly pinoy hospitality. If you’ve been craving si-log (sinangag and itlog) plates then this is the place to go in Chicago. We ordered the baby bangus, and the tocino breakfast plates which came with garlic rice (sinangag) and two eggs (made to order) each, with diced tomatoes w/onions, vinegar (for dipping), and a small cup of sweet sticky rice pudding on the side. While we waited for our orders, we were served “Uncle Mike’s soup” which is “lugaw” (rice porridge), and the very friendly and attentive server gave us each a souvenir key chain. Very nice touch! On our way out, Uncle Mike himself thanked us and offered treats (a large container of lugaw, a bottle of patis (fish sauce), and a can of Filipino corned beef for “baon” (take home goodies)). All in all it was a very nice experience. The food was good. The people were great. We will be back to try their skirt steak, which is their most popular dish. Give yourself time to look for parking though.
