Joining the understat food scene in PJ section 16; EVO Restaurant & Lounge , a fusion restaurant which is tucked away in the corner of the shoplots ; knowing it as Castel for its past owners.

The new menu looks promising; offering wide selections of entrees, mains and desserts which will never bored you.
We began the entrees with their Tofu Puff (RM18.00) . The stuffed tofu which is being served with the minced prawns, mixed vegetables battered and deep fried. Leaving us with the crispy edges of toufu and the scrumptious fillings of ingridients; the toufu made to our favorites. The juiciness in the tofu and the addictive Thai Chilly dipping makes a perfect match which is just irrestible.
Simple and not too appealing look ; The Evo Fried Anchovies (RM19.00) goes well as snacks and some beers too. The crunchy crispy Anchovies is well cleaned and it is being stir fried till tip top crunchiness with the mix of onions and green chillies which had made the blend of light spiciness. Yummz!
