Where to eat: 31 best midnight supper spots in SG for hungry insomniacs

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 31 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, brunch platters, childhood favourite fishball noodles, chocolatey brownies and waffles, good ol’ dim sum, smoky KBBQ, açaí bowls, refreshing bingsu and more. There will be something for everyone, and that’s a promise.

1. Johore Bahru Ye Zhi Mei Handmade Bao

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 pieces) 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).

2. 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 their 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.

3. Feng Shan 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 Oyster Egg.

4. Burnt Cones Gelato

Supper Listicle 2

Suppers for me often involve something sweet, which is why I had 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 Buttermilk Waffles (S$6) and have sweet dreams all night.

5. Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak

For the Eas-tsiders, there’s the trio of nasi lemak stalls at Changi Village. For the West-siders, there’s the one and only Boon Lay POWER Nasi Lemak. A very satisfying plate of nasi lemak is guaranteed, so you need to be prepared to queue when you go supper hunting for this stall.

6. 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 5am. There’s a Fat Prawn Burger (S$16.99), Thai Basil Pasta (S$11.99), and more, to cater to even the pickiest eater. End off your late-night feast with a Mighty Milkshake (S$10.99) for that burst of sweetness, or go for the Mini Milkshake (S$8.99) if you’re already stuffed.

7. 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.

8. Lola Faye Café

My sugar-dependent self couldn’t just leave you with one option for a sweet supper. Joining the ranks is Lola Faye Café, another halal-certified eatery that promises sugary gelato, croissants, and more. Their Gelato Croissant (S$9.90) called to me like a siren, though they have options such as 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.

9. Mr Prata


If Jalan Kayu is too inaccessible for you, check out Mr Prata instead. They have three outlets—Bedok, Tampines, and Botanic Gardens. 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?

10. 126 Dim Sum Wen Dao Shi (搵到食)

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 Prawn Rice Roll (S$3.80) and Pork Belly Buns (S$3.50)—the meat is tender and soft, and will definitely tide you over until we’re able to pay Hong Kong a visit again.

11. Ponggol Nasi Lemak

Ponggol in name but far from it, Ponggol Nasi Lemak has never been in Ponggol. It’s pretty ironic, but this is one of the more popular Chinese-style nasi lemaks. They also have Set Menus (S$6+) on Oddle where you can opt for a variety of ingredients such as chicken wings, vegetables, and fried fish.

12. Swee Choon Dim Sum

Swee Choon Pork ribs

If you’ve never heard of Swee Choon Tim Sum, are you even Singaporean? That 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$4.80) is one of my personal favourites, along with the Siew Mai (S$2.40) and Steamed Pork Ribs (S$3.50). 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.

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.

Their Fuzhou Fishball, Fish Dumpling, and Crispy Pancake will set you back S$5 each, which makes this an affordable way to fill your stomach in the wee hours of the morning.

14. Beauty in The Pot

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 to introduction. The ingredients are of high quality, and you’ll be spoilt for choice from the variety—there’s Pork Jowl (S$16.80), Sliced Lamb (S$19.60), and much, much more. Pick from their array of soup bases, and just go to town, calorie deficit be damned.

Daily: 11.30am – 3am

15. Chomp Chomp Food Centre

a photo of sambal stingray

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?

16. Upper Bukit Timah (Cheong Chin Nam Shophouse Row)


With the new Beauty World MRT Station (DT5) up and running, this stretch of shophouses has been seeing an increase in patrons once again. Indian food from Al-Azhar or Al-Ameen (the former is better) won’t fail you. I’m personally looking forward to digging into heaping plates of freshly made naan and prata during my next supper excursion.

17. Heng Long Teochew Porridge 兴隆潮洲粥

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 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 set you back less than S$10, making this an affordable option for hungry night owls.

18. Chicken Up

Recently expanding very aggressively in Singapore, Chicken Up atTanjong Pagar is a good spot for some midnight chicken cravings. A very popular Fried Chicken Buffet is also available at S$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.

19. Finest Song Kee

Large homemade peppery fish balls, Finest Song Kee has a pretty long wait and erratic opening hours. There is only one aunty cooking at the opposite speed of light at any time, so be prepared to wait around 30 to 45 mins for your noodles. The Mee Pok Dry (S$4+) is foolproof in the best of ways, along with Fishball, meatball, and fish dumpling (hee kiaw) soup (S$4/S$6/S$8).

20. Mosanco Café

mosanco cafe's menu offerings

Mosanco Café is open 24 hours, which means that there’s something for you if you’re awake in the wee hours of the morning with a growling tummy. Brunch for supper sounds wacky, but I’ll never say no to a serving of Truffled Mushroom with Scrambled Egg Toast (S$13.90) or Avocado Toast (S$12.90), even if it’s 1am. They also offer smoothie bowls if you’re just peckish—take your pick from the Berry Bliss Bowl (S$4.90), Matcha Bowl (S$15.90), or a healthy Acai Bowl (S$15.90), topped with your favourite medley of fruits and seeds.

There’s the Dine In Set (S$32) which comes with mains, drinks, the Draft Beer Set (S$28) if you just want to chill and bond over drinks and games, the Cake Set (S$25) that’s ideal for cake enthusiasts like myself, and more. Whatever you’re in the mood for, food, games, or otherwise, they’ve got it at Settlers Café, and that’s a promise.

This is for those who consider supper their dinner part two. I mean, who said you can’t have KBBQ right before bed? Superstar 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.

I do love a place with a great ambience, and garden-themed Wan Wan Thai is eye-catching in all the best ways. There’s flora, there’s fauna, and there’s thick toast. Take your pick from Honey Toast (S$7.90), Nutella Banana Toast (S$10.90), and more if you’re in the mood for a comforting snack. They also have a variety of Bingsu, in perennial flavours such as Milk Tea (S$10.90), Banana (S$12.90), Chocolate (S$12.90), and more. One of the best things about adulthood is allowing yourself sugary food no matter what time it is—sorry, Mama, the sugar rush is so worth it.

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 (S$5.80, S$7.80), and Bee Hoon Soup with Fried Fish ($7.50, $10.50, $13.50)—opt for the bigger portion if you want to share it with your dining companion and treat yourself to something comforting and warm.

25.  Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice

Midnight Supper Guide_Beach ROad Scissors Cut Curry Rice Online (1 of 2)

I absolutely love Jalan Besar’s Scissors Cut Curry Rice. So does everyone and their mother, and this popular sentiment is 100% well deserved.

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?

Supper Listicle 16

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.

Known for their really popular halal Indian-Malay-Western fare, in its heydays, it almost always had a queue. Although their menu is pretty similar to other prata places, their prices are a tad higher.

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 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.

G7 Live Seafood Restaurant has everything for any appetite. Their fare is highly praised as value for money, with a single Frog for S$8. If you order two, they’ll throw an extra one in for free, and if you get three, it comes with two free frogs and congee. If you know someone whose eyes would light up at the thought of this, make sure you invite them for a late-night supper session.

Why not add on their Marmite Pork Ribs (S$18) and Fu Rong Egg (S$10) while you’re there? Our last visit there was one for the books, and the next time we go, we’re expecting nothing less.

If a cheat day (or night, in this case) is in order, then Don Dae Bak is the way to go.

What sounds better than free flow options of Beef Bulgogi, Spicy Marinated Chicken, Sliced Pork Belly, Shoulder Loin, Beef Brisket, and more? The buffet is only valid for 90 minutes though, so go forth and conquer.
