While eating at 8th Street Cooperative, we decided to also give Noodlebox a try. They’re in the same location as Paros Real Greek and Little Lot Diner.


We dropped in on a Wednesday afternoon (around 3:00pm). The inside is spacious and there’s plenty of seating everywhere. Music playing was our jam (throwback R&B). I also liked how we were given real bowls and utensils (but come on, charging $1.00 extra to share a bowl? Get out of here).


The menu is small with 13 options. Mostly noodle related but there are a few other items.



Condiments up front on the counter.


Cambodian jungle curry ($11.00)
DSC05224Yellow curry & coconut broth, rice noodles, Asian greens, bean sprouts, peppers and cilantro. Topped with two small pieces of mango.


We got our box mild (level 1) as O can’t eat anything remotely spicy. Surprisingly, the curry was flavourful. They’re a bit stingy on the vegetables and you don’t get any protein included, which is unfortunate.

Chili plum ($9.50)
DSC05225Sweet chili plum sauce, Hokkien noodles, ginger, garlic, onions, peppers, Asian greens and bean sprouts. S added two free run fried eggs ($1.25 each).

Basically, a higher end version of fast food, noodle style. Alright if you’re in a rush.
