Being a nation of foodies, we do have an endless list of places to visit, regardless of cuisine, location, and time of day. At work, in school, along the street, it’s inevitable that we’ll walk past someone with food or a drink in their hand. Supper, for me, has always been either a steaming cup of instant noodles or ordering McNuggets at 1am, but here are 21 places for you to hit up if your stomach starts growling late at night.
This list has everything you could possibly want— freshly made roti prata, comforting congee, childhood favourite fishball noodles, chocolatey brownies and waffles, good ol’ dim sum, smoky KBBQ, and more. There will be something for everyone, and that’s a promise.
Breaking through to first place as best midnight supper spot is trailblazing gyu sushi specialist Black Fairy. With a name entirely suited to its focus on the evening crowd, Black Fairy also boasts a convenient location. It sits on Carpenter Street adjacent to one of Singapore’s most popular nightlife spots, Clarke Quay.
We love this place because their sushi isn’t the typical seafood-based fare you get virtually everywhere else in Singapore. Instead, they serve gyu sushi, which features cuts of meat (nikusushi) instead. That’s the far better option in the middle of the night— they are open till 3am— after a long drinking session.
However, the seats begin to fill up much earlier, almost immediately after Black fairy opens at 5pm. This crowd is made up mostly of young professionals who work in the nearby CBD area. There are many options closer to the CBD for them but they apparently can’t resist the Black Fairy appeal.
On the menu is an ideal mix of quality sushi and grilled dishes for a satisfying after-work dinner. Despite the high quality and the equally high demand, prices at the Black Fairy are surprisingly low. This fact was really the clincher in pushing them to top position on our list. Where else can you get wagyu sushi at prices starting at just S$1.90 per piece?
Their Meat Sushi Platter of 8 pieces (char siew, classic beef tenderloin, classic wagyu karubi, truffle wagyu karubi) goes at S$14.90— our favourite on the menu.
Both the office demographic and the late-night partiers love Black Fairy’s zosui (pao fan), a traditional rice soup that’s a staple in Japan for comforting after a long night of partying. That dish and the silky soft ramen are almost as popular as the gyu sushi that really brings in the foodies.
Black Fairy has enough space to accommodate up to 120 people comfortably at any time. If your colleagues or fellow partygoers appreciate Japanese food, particularly quality gyu sushi and hearty dishes, it would make sense to hold informal gatherings or parties here.
2. Johore Bahru Ye Zhi Mei Handmade Bao
Do you ever have that feeling like you’re not that hungry, but you still feel like eating something anyway? Then Johore Bahru Ye Zhi Mei Handmade Bao is the top choice. Their Prawn Siew Mai (S$2 for two) offers a quick bite without having to break the bank. It’s an affordable place to indulge a little, especially with a serving of their Char Siew Rice (S$1.80), or Glutinous Chicken Rice (S$1.80).

3. R.K. Eating House
Ask me out for supper and I’ll be sure to mention R.K Eating House as my go-to. If you’re here for your prata fix then something to take note is that they serve up the crispy type! They have a long list of prata flavours that you probably can’t even imagine, think Pineapple prata (S$3), Mango prata (S$2) and Corn prata (S$2). Another fascinating fare that R.K Eating House offers is the tallest Tissue Prata in Singapore, at S$5.50, it feeds 4 people.
This supper spot is infamous for their bombastic plate of R.K Special (S$7) prata combination. After Chef Bob ate this years ago, this hearty plate has been a constant order for many. They serve up a tsunami of curry injected with two plain crispy prata, kuah campur, mutton curry, sambal, soft boiled eggs, and more curry.

4. Fengshan Food Centre (Bedok 85 Market)
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 Orh Luak (85 Bedok North Fried Oyster).

Supper for many often involves something sweet, which is why I have to add Burnt Cones Gelato to the list. What better way to end a long day with a heaping scoop of ice cream? Their Premium Single Scoop will set you back S$5, and Doubles will cost you S$9. If you’re satisfying those cravings with a friend, opt to share their Plain Buttermilk Waffle (S$7) and have sweet dreams all night.
6. Super Star K
This is for those who consider supper their dinner part two. I mean, who said you can’t have KBBQ right before bed? Super Star K is the place to go and treat yourself—think Seasoned King Size Beef Rib (S$39.90), Pork Belly Bulgogi (S$19.90), Black Pepper Chicken (S$18.90), Kimchi Stew (S$14) and more. You’ll have to take a full shower once you get home, but hey, we’d do anything for a good meal of smoky, savoury, sinful KBBQ, right? And since you’re there, just add on a Kimchi Pancake (S$22) for me. I’ll live vicariously through you.
7. Good Bites
Some people are satisfied with just a small bite, but if you’re ravenous at midnight and googling frantically, look no further. Good Bites offers halal-certified fare and is open until 4am. There’s Fat Prawn Burger (S$17.50), Tom Yum Pasta (from S$14), and more, to cater to even the pickiest eater. End your late-night feast with a Signature Iced Coffee (from S$9) for that sweet caffeine fix, or go for the Mini Milkshake (S$9.90) if you’re already stuffed but still crave the sugar.
8. Fong Seng Fast Food Nasi Lemak
A favourite among NUS students residing in Eusoff Hall (just a minute’s 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, and you don’t want to lose your appetite because of that.

My sugar-dependent self couldn’t just leave you with just one option for a sweet supper. Joining the ranks is Lola Faye Café, another halal-certified eatery that promises sugary gelato, croissants, and more. They have options such as Gelato Croissant (S$9.80), Charcoal Blackout Waffles (S$7), Buttermilk Belgium Waffles (S$6, +S$5 add-on single scoop), and Fudgy Brownies with Gelato (S$10.90). I don’t know about you, but the next time my post-dinner hunger pangs hit me, this place is at the top of my list.
10. Mr Prata
If Jalan Kayu is too inaccessible for you, check out Mr Prata instead. They have five outlets (and growing). Try the Maggi Goreng Prata (Maggi Noodles in a Prata). It’s not the first pairing associated with roti prata, but can we normalise it, please? It’s worth all that extra calories, and isn’t that the hallmark of a good supper session?
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 at their Geylang outlet (open 24 hours daily) is as close as you can get to Hong Kong’s Portland Street. Do try the Prawn Rice Roll and Pork Belly Buns— the meat is tender and soft, and will definitely tide you over.
As of Dec 2022, the Boon Keng outlet is temporarily closed for renovation. Check their socials and website for more information.
Punggol in name but far from it, Ponggol Nasi Lemak has never been in Punggol. It’s pretty ironic, but this is one of the more popular Chinese-style nasi lemaks. They also have Set Menus (from S$6.90) on Oddle where you can opt for a variety of ingredients such as chicken wings, vegetables, and fried fish.
If you’ve never heard of Swee Choon Dim Sum, are you even Singaporean? This humble eatery is a definite contender for late-night supper excursions and probably will stay that way for the years to come. The Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun (S$6.30 for three) is one of my personal favourites, along with the Siew Mai (S$3.20) and Steamed Pork Ribs (S$5.20). Thinking of it is already making me hungry; can you jio me the next time you’re craving Swee Choon? I’ll say yes for sure.

14. 333 Bak Kut Teh
This particular bak kut teh eatery was previously known for offering piping hot bak kut teh for 24hrs. However, they changed their new hours to only operate in the evening till the wee hours in the morning— still perfect for supper! Those who are around the Balestier area would be able to enjoy their Pork Tenderloin Soup, with two sides of your choice, it goes for S$7.90. They offer one of the cheapest prices for bak kut teh out there, change your rice for mee sua for an additional S$1!

If you’re up late at night craving some warm soup, Beauty in The Pot would be a great fix. Open until 3am, this eatery needs no introduction. The ingredients are of high quality, and you’ll be spoilt for choice from the variety— there’s Pork Jowl (S$8.80/S$17.60), Sliced Lamb (S$10/S$20), and much, much more. Pick from their array of soup bases, and just go to town, calorie deficit be damned.
Do you love crowded 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?

Located along the popular midnight eateries of Upper Serangoon Road, Heng Long has seen an increase in queues for its popular midnight Teochew Porridge, as well as an increase in price. One of my favourite 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 standard accompanying orders, along with a bowl of braised sauce (卤汁). They’re all staples that won’t really go wrong with porridge, and the best part? It’ll only set you back less than S$10, making this an affordable option for hungry night owls.

18. Changi Village Area
There’s 89.7 Supper Club, Dil’B Restaurant, and plenty of other food stalls that open till late in this area. Pretty much the stretch of Changi Village would be a good bet if you’re looking for something for supper. The best part is, there are many prata places in addition to places already mentioned that are also halal.

Founded in 2010 and expanding very aggressively in Singapore, Chicken Up at Tanjong Pagar is a good spot for some midnight chicken cravings. The very popular Wing Buffet (S$20 for Ladies and S$25 for Men from Sunday to Thursday & S$25 for Ladies and S$30 for Men on Friday & Saturday) is also available, but be wary that each order is freshly fried, so it takes some time to prepare in-between orders.
20. 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.
Seng Kee Herbal Soup‘s top dishes include Mee Sua Soup with Pork, Liver, Kidney, and Bee Hoon Soup with Fried Fish— opt for the bigger portion if you want to share it with your dining companion and treat yourself to something comforting and warm.

21. Hai Di Lao
Don’t be surprised to see highly-intoxicated people here trying to sober up as well because most Hai Di Lao outlets are open until 6am. Of course, it isn’t the cheap kind of supper like curry rice or prata, so expect your meal to come out to more than S$30 per pax, especially with their wide variety of ingredients, side dishes, and noodles
Perhaps the wide variety of food and superb service can make you look past the price. Hai Di Lao provides an impeccable service, so really, you’re paying for what you get.
