Bruce Johnson is the founder of Uncles located originally at Pier 38 and currently operating his new store in Pearl Ridge where they are doing it old school. Created by a fisherman as a tribute to his mentors and heroes, Uncle’s was designed as an unpretentious place for fresh fish and best-in-class seafood products. Bruce says the Uncles were hard to get to know, tenacious, humble, a bit kolohe – they could be rascals – but very honorable. Today Uncle’s is known for honest, made to order food that locals crave and visitors seek when looking for an authentic Hawaii meal. They have a couple of my favorites, fish and chips and their award-winning garlic ahi. This episode is special to me because Bruce has ties to my hometown of Lana’i. This should be a fun show where we talk a little history, old neighborhoods and of course he makes his famous fish and chips.
