Being a nation of foodies, we do have an endless list of places to go to. It’s not gluttony but we do eat a lot. At work, in school, along the street, you will always see someone with some form of food in their hand.

So with an endless list of eateries, you think you are all set but what happens when you have a craving for food at 2am? Will it be McDelivery or instant noodles? Never fear. With this list of ultimate late midnight supper spots, your growling stomachs will not bother the neighbours after 12am.

Here’s my list of the places you should go for supper around the island.

1. Rocher Original Beancurd

rochorbeancurd

Perhaps this is Singapore’s most famous tau huay, known for silky smooth beancurd. Next door neighbour and rival, Beancurd City, also serves equally good beancurd. Both owners are brothers after all, just not on speaking terms. Rochor Original Beancurd also has egg tarts which makes a nice accompaniment to soybean milk and tau huay.

Address: 2 Short Street, Singapore 188211
Operating hours: 12pm to 1am (Daily)

2. Cafeela

Thohirah Cafeela

Ask any Singaporean what Jalan Kayu is famous for and you are likely to hear “Jalan Kayu Roti Prata”. Jalan Kayu has Thasevi and Cafeela which has its fans alike. Cafeela has the upper hand with it being situated next to the public carpark. Do try the Nasi Briyani and Roti John, one of better ones around. Thasevi is otherwise a bit more pricey, but nonetheless still good.

Address: 254 Jalan Kayu, Singapore 799481
Operating hours: 24 Hours

3. Feng Shan Food Centre/Bedok 85 Market

bedok85stingray

Feng Shan Food Centre aka Bedok Block 85 is known for its atmosphere of buzz and good grub among the east-siders. Must eats at Block 85 are the soup based Bak Chor Mee (Ah Poh Minced Meat Noodle, Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian, Seng Hiang Bak Chor Mee), Sambal Stingray (Chan BBQ), Hokkien Prawn Mee, Satay, Chicken Wings, and Oyster Egg.

Ah Poh Minced Meat Noodle: Blk 85 Bedok North Street 4 #01-18, Singapore 460085
Operating Hours: 6pm – 3am (Closed on Mondays)

Bedok North 85 Fried Oyster Blk 85 Bedok North Street 4 #01-09/10, Singapore 460085

4. Tim Ho Wan (Aperia Kallang)

tinhowan

The world’s cheapest one Michelin Star restaurant has a couple of outlets in Singapore. The latest one at Aperia in Kallang opens 24 hours even. So if you dread queuing during the waking hours of normal people, this is your best bet. Don’t expect it to be of similar standards to the original Hong Kong outlet.

Address: 12 Kallang Avenue, #01-01/02/03 Aperia, Singapore 339511 | Website
Operating hours: 24 hours (Daily)

5. Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak

For the eastsiders, there’s the trio of nasi lemak stalls at Changi Village. For the westsiders, there’s the one and only Boon Lay POWER Nasi Lemak. A very satisfying plate of nasi lemak, be prepared to queue when you go supper hunting for this stall.

Address: Blk 221B Boon Lay Place, #01-106, Singapore 642221 | Website
Operating hours: 6pm to 4am (Mon) 6am to 3pm, 6pm to 4am (Tue to Sun)

6. Outram Park Ya Hua Rou Gu Cha

outram park ya hua bak kut teh keppel

One of my favourite places for Bak Kut Teh, the pigs trotters have lots of yummy fat collagen and the braised intestines are pretty soft. The pork soup has a very unique peppery taste that makes you want more after downing the first bak kut teh. Detractors will beg to differ but it’s a pretty decent place if you are looking for Bak Kut Teh after most of the other stalls shutter for the night. There is ample parking and space as well, so no queuing needed.

Address: 7 Keppel Road, 01-05/07, PSA Tanjong Pagar Complex
Operating hours: Tues to Sat 7am to 3am, Sun 7am to 1am (Closed on Mon)

7. Fong Seng Fast Food Nasi Lemak

A favourite among NUS students residing in Eusoff Hall (just minutes walk away), Fong Seng has decent nasi lemak at relatively affordable prices. For those who drive, just park legally at the NUS carpark and walk over. The LTA wardens are ever ready to pounce on the errant parkers.

Address: 22 Clementi Rd, Singapore 129751
Operating hours: 6am to 4am (Daily)

8. Spruce At Fire Station, Upper Bukit Timah

Pugliese Pizza

If you are looking for something heartier for a late night meal, check out Spruce. Late night supper is served from 10pm to 11.45pm.

Address: 260 Upper Bukit Timah Road, #01-01, Singapore 588213  | Website
Operating Hours: 11.30am to 12.30am (Tue to Thu) 11.30am to 1am (Fri) 9am to 1am (Sat) 9am to 12.30am (Sun/PH)

9. Mr Prata

If Jalan Kayu is too inaccessible for you, check out Mr Prata instead. They have 3 outlets – Bedok, Tampines, and Botanic Gardens. Try the Maggi Goreng Prata (Maggi Noodles in a Prata) – it’s really good.

Address: 26 Evans Road, Singapore – 259367 | Website
Operating hours: 24 hours (Daily)

10. 126 Dim Sum Wen Dao Shi (搵到食)

126 dim sum wen dao shi

If you are looking for an authentic retro Hong Kong dim sum dining experience, 126 is the place to go. The vibe of the sleaze from the neighbouring units is as close as you can get to Hong Kong’s Portland Street. Do try the beancurd rolls and scallop porridge.

Address: 126 Sims Ave, Singapore 387449
Operating hours: 24 hours (Daily)

11. Ponggol Nasi Lemak

ponggol nasi lemak

Ponggol in name but far from it, Ponggol Nasi Lemak has never been in Ponggol. Such an irony. One of the more popular Chinese-style nasi lemaks, you can pretty much customize you own meal. Just be prepared to empty the wallet as prices are much higher compared to alternatives such as Chong Pang Nasi Lemak, which is also not too bad a spot for late night nasi lemak.

Address: 965 Upper Serangoon Road, Singapore 534721
Operating hours: 5.30pm to 2.30am (Closed on Thu)

Address: 238 Tanjong Katong Road, Singapore 437026
Operating hours: 5.30pm to 2.30am (Closed on Thu)

12. Swee Choon Dim Sum

Swee Choon Pork ribs

Before Tim Ho Wan, Swee Choon was the name to go to for midnight dim sum and it still probably is. If you are looking for good dim sum without breaking the bank, Swee Choon is the place to be at. If you are still feeling peckish after all the fried and steamed goodies., there are some other zi char dishes available on the menu as well.

Address: 191 Jalan Besar, Singapore 208882 | Website
Operating hours: 6pm to 6am (Closed on Tue)

13. Ming Fa Fishball

There are many Bak Chor Mee stalls in Singapore but few are open at 3am in the morning like Ming Fa when you need your fix.  If Upper Thomson is too far from where you are, you can always try Seng Huat opposite Bugis Junction which also opens as a midnight supper alternative.

Address: 246B Upper Thomson Road Singapore 574370
Operating Hours: 24 Hours

14. Moojaa (under renovation)

moojaa best mookata singapore - store

With many Mookata eateries opening around the island and quite a number opening till late. Moojaa is still one of the better ones to go to, especially since they open till late. The meats are much better here and you have the option of going for the premium cuts.

Address: 25 Keong Saik Road, Singapore 089132
Operating hours: 5pm to 6am (Mon to Fri) 12pm to 6am (Sat) 12pm to 1am (Sun)

15. Chomp Chomp Food Centre

chompchomp

Do you love crowed places? Natural smokey scents Limited seating? Then Chomp Chomp is just the place for you. Eating here is indeed an experience. For fans, this is arguably the best place on the island for sambal stingray, satay, oyster egg, chicken wings and hokkien mee. For others, this is overhyped and just makes your hair smell like BBQ. What’s your take?

Carrot Cake 菜頭粿 (that’s the literal name of the store): 20 Kensington Park Road, Chomp Chomp Food Centre, Singapore 557269  (closed on alternate Tues)

upperbukittimah

With the Downtown Line works for the future Beauty World MRT Station (DT5) approaching completion, the hoardings were recently remove and this stretch of shophouses have been seeing an increase in patrons once again. Indian food from Al-Azhar or Al-Ameen (the former is better), frog porridge from G7 Sin Ma or freshly grilled burgers from Tenderfresh Classic are all good choices.

17. Heng Long Teochew Porridge 兴隆潮洲粥

heng long teochew porridge midnight food singaporeheng long midnight porridge supper spot singapore

Located along the popular midnight eateries of Upper Serangoon Road, Heng Long has seen an increase in queues for its popular midnight Teo Chew Porridge, as well as an increase in price. One of my favorite hot spots for supper since I stay nearby, they have quite a large variety of comforting dishes to choose from.

The spicy minced pork, braised duck, fish cake and cabbage (高麗菜) are some of my standard accompanying orders, along with a bowl of braised sauce (卤汁). If the queue is too long, there is another porridge stall called Ah Li San right beside Heng Long as well which also serves as good a Teochew porridge.

Address: 1006, Upper Serangoon Road, Singapore 534744
Operating Hours: 6pm to 4am

18. Chicken Up

Recently expanding very aggressively in Singapore, Chicken Up at Tanjong Pagar is a good spot for some midnight chicken cravings. A very popular Fried Chicken Buffet is also available at $25+, but be wary that each order is freshly fried, so it takes some time to prepare in-between orders. The fried chicken here is also picked by SPH’s writer as the best Korean fried chicken in a blind taste testing among a few of the other prominent brands.

Address: 48 Tanjong Pagar Road, #01-01, Singapore 088469
Operating Hours: 5.30pm – 2am (daily)

19. Finest Song Kee

midnight supper spot song kee fishball noodles singapore

Large homemade peppery fish balls, Finest Song Kee has a pretty long wait and erratic opening hours. There is only 1 aunty cooking at the opposite speed of light at any time, so be prepared to wait around 30 to 45 mins for your noodles. Just take a queue number and relax at the tables.

Address: 532 Upper Serangoon Road, Singapore 534547
Operating hours: Mon – Sat 6.45pm – 1am 

20. Ma La Hui Cui Guan 麻辣荟萃馆

ma la hui cui guan midnight supper spot singapore

Want to have extremely spicy sze-chuan peppers at 3am in the morning? What could possibly go wrong. Ma La Hui Cui Guan offers a la carte as well as a buffet menu for their Ma La hot pot, guaranteed to numb your taste buds. When I had it, there was so much chili peppers I could barely see the soup. Also, as a personal note, combining this spicy broth with late night drinking will result in very active bowels the next day.

Address: 260 Middle Rd, Singapore 188988 
Operating Hours: 11am – 5.30am

21.  Miss Lok

Midnight Supper Guide_Miss Lok (1 of 1)

Tired of regular ol’ hotpot? Try Miss Lok for some swanky contemporary hotpot inspired by the street food of our familiar neighbours – Malaysia, Japan, Korea, Thailand and China.

Lok Lok style hot pot with 8 different broths – including Singapore Laksa, Bak Kut Teh and something called the Asari Clam Sake Soup. Like many other hotpot places, you can concoct your own dipping sauce freely. They do have sauces of their own like their signature salted egg yolk sauce or Chinchalok etc.

Other than hotpot ingredients, they also offer noodles that change seasonally. They have had green tea soba, Ma La Mee Tai Mak, squid ink laksa but noodles are only available for lunch.

Miss Lok: 5 Magazine Road #01-01 Singapore 059571 | Tel: 6604 8814 | Website | Opening hours: Mon-Sat 1800-0200 hrs (Dinner)

22.  Springleaf Prata Place

Best breakfast places singapore - springleaf prata place

Sure it’s another prata place but does your regular prata place sell Crispy Red Bean Prata, Eggs Ben Prata or even Prata Goreng? I’m sure they don’t. Eggs and oily food are also said to be really good hungover foods and I may or may not thoroughly agree with that.

Apart from the 2 more popular outlets – Upper Thomson and Tua Kong, Springleaf has recently opened another outlet at Rail Mall.

Springleaf: No. 1 Thong Soon Ave, Singapore 787431 | Tel: 64595670 | Website

23.  Xiang Ji Roasted Meat

Conveniently located at CCK 302, the 24 hours kopitiam where you can always satisfy your crazy char siew rice craving anytime. The delicious Xiang Ji is here to save you. Have your favourite roasted meat then a good night’s sleep.

Xiang Ji Roasted Meat: Block 302, Choa Chu Kang Avenue 4, Singapore 680302 | Open: 24 hours

24.  Seng Kee Herbal Soup (Changi)

Hearing the name ‘Black Chicken Herbal Soup’ might make you think it’s one of those claypot soups where the black chicken sits quietly in the herbal stew, waiting for you to savour it.

This is not the case for Seng Kee, their herbal soup is actually the soup base for their noodles. They are highly known for their Pig Liver Herbal Mee Sua that people flock from different corners of Singapore for. Only the main branch at Changi opens till 4am.

Seng Kee: 475/477 Changi Road, Singapore 419885 | Tel: 6746 4089 | Website | Opening hours: 11am-4am

25.  Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice

I absolutely love Jalan Besar’s Scissors Cut curry rice.

You’ll be so confused by the uncle’s need to use his scissors on everything –  your chicken chop, and basically almost every other dish you add, into thin bite sized pieces. But after confusion, mesmerisation sets in – how does one cut everything so precisely in a seemingly dance-like process of choppy popping-locking or should I say snipping-snapping?

Pouring a ladle-full of braised sauce and another of curry makes your rice deliciously goopy. Coupled with chicken chop and cabbage, you’re pretty much set. This is one of the popular supper spots for nightcrawlers so you might expect some waiting.

Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice: 229 Jalan Besar, Singapore 208905  | Tel:  9826 1464 | Opening Hours: 11am to 3:30am

26.  Spize

Midnight Supper Guide_Spize (1 of 1)

Everyone knows this it’s like if I don’t write it down, some idiot’s going to go “ How bout SPIZE”, geez louise calm down. Do you see me saying McDonalds? Obviously not.

(Spize is a really popular halal Indian-Malay-Western food place that almost always has a queue. Although their menu is pretty much similar to other prata places, their prices are a tad higher. )

Spize: 336 Bedok Road Singapore 469512 | Tel: 6734 9194 | Website | Weekdays: 12pm to 2am, Weekends: 12pm to 3am

27.  Hai Di Lao

Midnight Supper Guide_Hai Di Lao (1 of 1)

Don’t be surprised to see drunk people here as well because Hai Di Lao opens until 6am. Of course it isn’t the cheap kind of supper like Curry Rice or Prata, so the people eating there are probably ballers LOL.

Perhaps the wide variety of food and superb service can make you look past the price. HDL provides fuzzy soft home slippers for you to rest your feet after a long night out, freak those heels (but please remember to bring them back don’t forget your beloved heels ladies please).

Best part, if someone gets really drunk, they have a wheelchair to wheel you out. So no worries, you’re compleeeetely covered.

Hai Di Lao: Clarke Quay, 3D River Valley Road,#02-04,  Singapore  | Tel: 6337 8626 / 6337 8627 | Website | Hours: 10:30am-6am

28. Changi Village Area

There’s 89.7 Supper Club, Satayhood and plenty of other kopitiams or food courts that open till late so yeah. Pretty much the stretch of changi village would be a good bet if you’re looking for something for supper. Best part is, there are many prata places in addition to 89.7 and satayhood which are all halal.

Changi Village: Changi Village Road

29. Char-Grill Bar

Midnight Supper Guide_Char Grill (1 of 1)

Yes I added Char-grill Bar, I don’t see anything wrong with Char-Grill. They are actually pretty decent (at least at the outlets I’ve patronised). The prices are really affordable for and there’s a really wide variety – you can have fried fish, grilled meats, fries, pasta salad, baked potatoes; they all sound like really good food for midnight snacking!

Note: Some outlets close at 11pm, some outlets will open till b like Yishun, Clementi West, Marine Parade, Ang Mo Kio Ave 3 – check their website for various outlets’ opening hours.

Char Grill Bar: Bukit Batok Street 34, #01-25, Singapore 650347 | Website | Hours: 11am to 3am

30. Senor Taco

Midnight Supper Guide_Senor Taco (1 of 1)

Sick of prata, rice, noodles or basically all the usual supper foods? Try Mexican.

Hearty Mexican street food like tacos, quesadillas and antojitos for supper. Mexican food is already a great beer go-with so if you’re around the area drinking, you could head down to Senor Taco to fill your bellies.

Senor Taco: 3A River Valley Road #01-07/12 Read Street, Singapore 179023 | Tel: 6336 1734 | Website | Sun – Tues, Thurs: 6pm-1:30am, Wed, Fri – Sat: 6pm-3:30am
