For a quick bite at dinner chatterbox is as good as any other place. Offering basic dishes inspired by South East Asian, Singapore and Malaysian cuisine. I stopped in here with a friend one night as it recently received a favourable review in last weeks Mercury. I had a spicy prawn laksa which I must say was delicious, I wouldn't say 'the best in Hobart' as claimed, but very creamy, sweet and spicy from the fusion of coconut cream and chilies. It was a generous portion bulked up by thick egg noodles and fat juicy prawns. I'm keen to go back and try their soya duck noodle soup, along other classic soups such as wonton and tom yum. As well as a modest selection of soups to choose from, you can also get the typical dishes found in any bain-marie Asian restaurant. There are plenty of places like this around Hobart, some are better than others, specialising more in one thing than the other. However, Chatterbox is simple, cheap and convenient, offering nice food so why not?!
