Delaware’s Evo Wok Is Amazing

Evo Wok Hot and Sour Soup

I tried to come up with a great headline for this post, but it just kept coming back to keeping it simple and clean. Because, well that’s what Evo Wok in Delaware, Ohio, is all about.

Evo Wok, located at 120 West William Street, in historic downtown Delaware is all about keeping it simple and delicious. The family has now been to the Wok on two occasions and found it to be a great experience.

The concept is not new – think Chipolte or Bibibop Asian Grill – but it proves that when you do something the right way it works.

How to Order Your Dinner

Evo Wok Grilled Chicken
The grilled chicken was of premium quality without the fatty pieces you get so often in this restaurant genre. (toby boyce)
  • Choose your base from rice, fried rice, lo mein, brown rice and quinoa, and salad greens.
  • Choose your protein from grilled chicken, fried chicken, steak, shrimp, or fried tofu.
  • Choose your warm veggies options including onions, peppers, mushrooms, grilled green beans, and zucchini.
  • Choose your cold veggies including options like edamame, corn, cheese, and more.
  • Choose your sauce including General Tso’s, garlic, sesame, and more.
  • Enjoy an amazing meal.

The Results

I went in with very high expectations … and they surpassed every single one.

The owner showcases her pride in the work. When we visited it felt like she said “I make that” for everything from the Crab Rangoon to the wonton soup. And that handmade care comes through in the food. Everything tastes very fresh.

I did half fried rice and half lo main base for mine and it was so good that even Ms. O. has now started ordering it that way. While, Ms. O. only addition is carrots, I went a little further having had steak, grilled shrimp, peppers, onions, mushrooms, bean sprouts, and several other veggies. I really liked the General Tso sauce and also tried the siracha sauce is good but not for the faint of heart. Gretchen did no base with grilled chicken and a collection of veggies and the garlic sauce.

Don’t sleep on the appetizers! I am not a big fan of egg rolls, they usually just taste like oil to me, but these were crisp, fresh, and didn’t feel like I was eating a bottle of oil. The Crab Rangoon is made with real crab and you can actually taste it in the blend. We’ve done the hot-and-sour and wonton soups and both were amazing. She makes the wontons for the soup and the broth is crisp and fresh – they actually put the ingredients together when you order so the wontons don’t get overcooked and mushy. The hot-and-sour will become a staple in my diet. It doesn’t have as many “leftovers” as other places in the area, however, that lets her amazing base just blows your mind.

We took ours home both times to eat and the food was still very warm and fresh. There is a small seating area that has a half-dozen two-top tables and one four-top. So dining is an option just could be limited.

Evo Wok is open Tuesday – Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
