Chatterbox launched new menu, created by Executive Chef Liew Tien Heong and features revamped classics dishes.
The new menu that I tried are the Grilled Pork Rib with Fruit Sauce and Fried Mantou, Chilli Prawns with Fried Mantou and BBQ Sambal Seafood Platter.
The grilled pork is very tender, served with savoury sweet sauce. Meanwhile the chilli prawns with fried mantou is fresh prawns served in thick sweet and tangy sauce.
The BBQ sambal seafood is perfect to sharing, squid, king prawns and lala seasoned in spicy chilli paste ( a bit spicy for little boss).
For dessert, there are Peanut Glutinous Rice Balls coated with crushed peanuts or in sweet ginger broth

Came here to try the iconic chicken rice.

Ordered the individual portion of chicken rice to share, it was good, rice cooked well and flavourful with stock, chicken was tad dry, however well marinated. The chicken slices (boneless) were on a bed of lettuce and few slices of cucumber. Chili was not too garlicky (which I preferred to avoid garlic breath) which was accompanied with ginger purée and dark soy sauce.

Also tried the char kway teow, rojak and oyster omelette.

The char kway teow had a good wok hei to it.

The rojak had variety of ingredients from the usual fruits and additional ones like jambu (water apple). The yu tiao (dough fritters pieces) were crispy and coated with sauce. Taste wise a tad sweet IMO.

Interesting rendition of oyster omelette which reminded me of the Japanese omu rice where the ingredients are encased within the egg omelette and the tangy chili sauce dosed on top of the omelette like a sauce. Would have been better if the chili sauce to be served on the side instead as the omelette and oysters were drowning in the sauce covering all taste with the sauce. Also, texture wise, it’s all soft and lumpy. Unlike the hawker version which has crispy bits.

Wasn’t expecting much from the coconut shake however was pleasantly surprised (after the shocked from the oyster omelette). Blended coconut ice cream with juice, bits of chin chow and chunky red bean brought highlight to simple ingredients. Yummy!

On the service side, it could have been better, as we have asked to change our seats not once but multiple times throughout our dining session as they were high stools and my pregnant girlfriend was 7 months pregnant was quite a big tummy hence the chair was uncomfortable and the table clearance barely touching her tummy. Not mentioning there were empty tables which was “reserved”. Disappointing with the lack of human touch.

If you are hungry and in the mood for more, look no further than the Lobster Laksa ($34), one of our favourite dishes from Chatterbox that is loaded with a whole Boston lobster claw. The star of the show is the flavourful coconut spice broth that is creamy and comforting that you will keep going back for more. With the addition of the thick vermicelli noodles, it latches onto the broth perfectly and with each slurp of the noodles, you can get the full-on broth experience. The dried beancurd is like a sponge that soaks up all the creamy goodness as well.

Another recommendation is the Seafood Hokkien Mee ($25), a stir-fry noodle dish of bee hoon and yellow noodles that is simmered in an umami-rich seafood broth with the addition of fresh prawns, squid, pork belly, eggs, bean sprouts and chives. You might even get bites of pork lard as you scoop through this noodle dish. To end the meal, get the traditional Signature Coconut Ice Cream ($15) that is served in an actual coconut husk with two scoops of coconut ice cream topped with crunchy walnuts.

This iconic chicken rice is no stranger to many and has been covered by mainstream media for the longest time since 1971 to which it has even achieved legendary status. The chickens are specially sourced to ensure you are getting thick and juicy meat from each bite, and slow steamed in an aromatic stock till tender and then cooled to seal in all the flavours. Served boneless, the individual set ($25) comes with a side of fragrant jasmine rice, warm soup that contains the essence of chicken and aromatics with an accompanying trio of homemade chilli sauce, ginger puree, and dark soya sauce. Though it might be pricier than what you can normally get in the hawker centres, what you are paying for here is the quality and consistency of a chicken rice that you get to enjoy in a comfortable environment.
