Evangelines in Austin, Texas

What an exquisite little place in Southwest Austin! Reminds me a bit of hanging out in the Bywater and Marginey of New Orleans. The decor and the music takes me to that magical place called New Orleans.
The food was prepared with the touch of a New Orleans Chef with aromatic bouquets of quintessential elegance and that raucous spice of Cajun Cuisine. The Dixieland playing on a loop track just added to the flair of this establishment.
I had the Crawfish Ettouffee which was served in a nice size bowl with a splattering of paprika and chili powder around the rim and some fresh green onion stems for added flavor. The Stuffed Pistolette with a creamy crawfish filing was like to the taste buds and spiced to bring out the flavor of the crawfish.
Mark had the Chicken and Sausage Gumbo with the traditional dark roux base. Heavy flavored by lite on the palette. Eric had the chicken fried steak that was a creation to see and taste.
All in all, a great experience and I will be back to try the house pasta specials.
