Little Boxes...

That title won't make sense unless you watch Weeds, the box set, and became fascinated with the fact that the title track is performed by a different band, in a different musical style, every single episode. After watching the first season in its entirety you'll hear nothing in your head but "little boxes on the hillside, little boxes full of ticky-tacky!" 

Speaking of little boxes (no, not that, and get your mind out of the gutter), I'm not sure if anyone has tried Box Thai on Arbuthnot yet, but since readers report that it's impossible to book a table at The Box for Thai buffet lunch, since its explosion in popularity no doubt due to our blog's promotion of it (ha ha), this new Box might be worth a drop by. 

No word on whether the food is going to be authentically delicious, but it's opened by the same group that started Frites, Tapeo and Mrs Jones, all of which have received good reviews in our books. Their lunch set almost as good a deal as at The Box (are there no restaurant names left in the world? Two places called Box? Which isn't even a very good restaurant name...) Lunches are $78-$118 for three courses, including a salad, dessert and one of noodle soup, wok noodles or curry rice as a main. 

Why is everyone doing those Chinese takeaway boxes now anyway? It made sense for Dining Wok (is that still in operation, by the way?) but now everyone's jumping on the bandwagon. "There's a green one and a pink one and a blue one and a yellow one, and they're all made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same..." 

BOX Thai is at 4-8 Arbuthnot Road, Central. Tel: 852 2537 6887.

  1. Frites is the sorriest excuse for a Belgian restaurant ever.
