Chatter Box

Shop 18, 235 Bourke St
Melbourne, 3000

Chatter Box sits at the back of the Tivoli Arcade which runs off Bourke Street. It was pretty packed when we arrived at around 12:30 for lunch, but after ordering we managed to find a table. It's pretty cramped inside, there were a few tables outside as well, it actually emptied out a bit over the time we were there. Once we had a table we grabbed some tea from the urn and listened out for our food order numbers to be called out over the hubbub.

Phil's Singapore Noodles noodles arrived first, a large plate of flavoursome noodles with some small prawn's and some small pieces of meat. The only reservation with the dish was the relative paucity of meat.

I had the seafood Tom Yum with noodles, which was flavoursome although not quite up to the standards I remember from travels in Thailand. There were a few small prawns amongst the more processed seafood and plenty of fine noodles.

The meals were $8.50-$9 each, so for the amount of food received we couldn't argue, and it is certainly a good option for this part of town.
