A Clubber’s Guide To Midnight Makan Spots in Singapore After The Music Dies Down

After a heavy night of drinking and jiving to groovy tunes slowly dies down, one would find oneself suddenly left with an insatiable appetite and intense carb cravings. That’s the case for a perpetually hungry buffoon like yours truly.

Whether it is finding a good late night spot nearby to fulfil your after-clubbing food urges or to find a communal food place for you and your crew to crash at, most usually look for the nearest eatery to hang out at till dawn comes and the public transport services start functioning.

To make life slightly easier for the wild clubber in you, I’ve compiled a list of midnight food spots that every clubber who appreciates a good hearty meal to soak up the remaining liquor in his/her system, can utilize. Since most clubs lie within the Clarke Quay, River Valley and CBD area, this food guide will mostly comprise of good food places around these locations.

Also, since a night of partying usually lasts till around 0200 (for me at least), another factor I’ve considered for this guide is that the eatery has to be open till at least 0300 or 0400 & beyond.

1. Hai Di Lao

Midnight Supper Guide_Hai Di Lao (1 of 1)

Over time, Hai Di Lao has managed to establish itself as one of the best few steamboat places in Singapore, and with good reason too. Here are a few reasons Hai Di Lao would make for a perfect after-clubbing food spot for the hungry slowly sobering up.

Firstly, this place is highly reputed for their topnotch service so you will not have to stress your dazed self out during your meal as the servers will help with the cooking of meats and whatnot. Next, the place closes at 0600 so if you plan to party till 0400, you don’t have to worry too much about this place closing and plus, it is located at a prime area.

And of course, the food at Hai Di Lao is far from disappointing, with their handmade noodles and various delicious soup bases like Local Laksa, Seafood and Tomato being offered. You can get 6 succulent pieces of Fresh Scallops ($12) and 5 sweet pieces of Fresh Prawns ($4) which is pretty worth it for its quality.

2. Five Star Hainanese Cuisine (River Valley)

For $4.20, you can get a more-than-decent plate of chicken rice at 5 Star Hainanese Chicken Rice which keeps it delicious goods available to all till 0500 each day at River Valley.

Their rice is fragrant and just the right amount to soak up the remaining alcohol in your system. Their chicken is nice and tender, which should put you in a mood good enough to face the new day (or to slip you into a peaceful slumber).

3. Pint and Curries


Pint and Curries is a funky joint venture by Bar Bar Black Sheep and S11 that takes residence right by the Singapore River. This small but lovely eatery opens till late every night, especially on Fridays and Saturdays to appease the drinking crowds with beers and fresh servings of naans and curries, as the name aptly suggests. If you’re the sort of clubber who believes that the “night is still young” but is exhausted from dancing, scurry on over to Pint and Curries!

Apart from the classic North Indian dishes like Butter Chicken ($12) and Chicken Tikka Masala ($12), Pint and Curries sells other unique foods like Chicken65 ($9), savoury and spicy finger-foods that are rather addictive.

A midnight food guide for clubbers would not be complete without Spize, a casual restaurant in River Valley that most are all too familiar with. Spize has an extensive selection of foods to choose from – Chinese, Indian, Italian, etc., with prices ranging from $4.50 to $15. Pick a dish and indulge.

5. Lim Joo Hin Eating House


What’s the perfect dish to end the night of your partying and ready yourself for a new day (if you can’t sleep in)?

A steamy bowl of porridge. That’s exactly what Lim Joo Hin Eating House offers every late-night wanderer. If you travel in packs of 3s or 4s, you can order several dishes for a total of less than $50 and enjoy dishes like Braised Pork or White Cabbage with your plain but filling porridge.

If you begin to crave Mexican food whilst dancing on the dance floor and listening to perhaps a Shakira soundtrack mix blast through the stereos, fret not. Señor Taco at Clarke Quay can satisfy your cravings with their Burritos ($17) and rather authentic Tacos.

O’ Coffee Club at Wheelock K1 is opened 24 hours and can be your temporary place of residence for until the train services start again and you can travel back to the other end of Singapore (the taxi fare would be ridiculously high otherwise).

Apart from conveniently serving till early in the morning on Fridays and Saturdays, Hoe Kee Cantonese Porridge at Maxwell Food Centre makes sure to serve up delicious bowls of porridge of quality.

9. Kko Kko Na Ra

Korean Fried Chicken is one other highly sought after dish in Singapore and thankfully, there’s a place in Tanjong Pagar near the CBD area that can cater to your late-night fried chicken wing craving – Kko Kko Na Ra. The portion of chicken wings served here may be rather generous for $25 but each wing is a little skinny. The fact that the chicken wings are extremely tasty and are not too greasy is a definite bonus though!

Kko Kko Na Ra: 68 Tanjong Pagar Road, Singapore 088489 |Monday to Saturday 1200- 1500, 1800 -0300, Sunday 1800-0100 |Tel : 62259282 | Website 

10. Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice

Scissors cut curry rice.

While this Curry Rice stall may be a little further away from the CBD area, I had to place this somewhere on the list mostly because the food served here is oh so delicious. For about $5, you can get a magnificent plate of saucy, savoury, scissors-cut up chunks of chicken (or your preferred meat) and the vegetable of your choice. Imagine digging in to this scrumptious plate of curry rice and letting all the carbs soak up the remnants of your night.
Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice: 229 Jalan Besar, Singapore 208905 | Monday to Sunday 1100-0330 | Tel: 9826 1464 

11. OverEasy Restaurant

 While the food served here may be a little on the pricier end, I can assure you that it is definitely worth the money. Best known for their Truffle Mac & Cheese with Wild Mushrooms ($16) which makes for a very pleasant meal after a tiring night of dancing, OverEasy will definitely not disappoint the hungry (and hopefully still not broke) clubber you!
OverEasy Restaurant: 1 Fullerton Road, One Fullerton, #01-06, Singapore 049213 | Monday to Thursday 1130-1430, 1700-0100, Friday 1130-1430, 1700-0300, Saturday 1700-0300, Closed on Sundays | Tel: 6423 0701 

12. The Ramen Stall

The Ramen Stall is one of the best places to get yourself a quick fix of Japanese food, dishes ranging from sushi to ramen like Beef Ramen ($12.90), at late hours. This Japanese eatery, while not best-known for its service, does serve delicious bowls of ramen with interesting flavours like Volcano Ramen which is essentially hot and spicy, and Abalone Seafood Ramen for the seafood-lovers.
The Ramen Stall: 787 North Bridge Road, North Bridge Rd, Singapore 198755 | Monday to Friday 1700-0600, Saturday 1200-0600, Sunday 1200-0000 | Tel: 6655 0800

13. Kao Gong Fu

While Kao Gong Fu seems to be more nondescript than most other food places around the Bugis area, this BBQ restaurant has made a name for itself by providing quality Hong Kong and Chinese dishes till late hours. Kao Gong Fu would make the perfect spot for you and your friends to enjoy an affordable meal (complete with uniquely-flavoured dishes like Chocolate Spring Rolls) and welcome the morn.
Kao Gong Fu: 470 North Bridge Road, Bugis Cube, #01-02, Singapore 188735 | Monday to Saturday 1100-0500, Sunday 1100-0000 | Tel: 6337 8798

14. Happy Mookata

 If you and your mates are in a more adventurous spirit after clubbing, there is a modest Mookata place at Golden Mile Tower that is definitely worth a try. The highly affordable A la carte Buffet for $23.90 can feed you hungry people and feed you well. The broth they use is the standard chicken sort but the soup gets very flavourful very quickly and the chicken meat and beef slices were rather tasty. Do be warned, however…The Sotong Balls aren’t too great.

Happy Mookata: 6001 Beach Road, Golden Mile Tower, #01-55D, Singapore 199589 | Monday to Sunday 1800-0300 | Tel:8113 0074 | Website 


If it takes a bunch of you to cough up a few more dollars to take a short taxi trip down to a food spot or if it takes a group of you drunken fools to find your way on foot to an eatery, I’m sure there can only be two possible outcomes, both of which are favourable.

You can either make it to the place and satiate your monstrous after-drinking appetite with tasty food or get lost walking there and make a silly but sweet memory with your pals. So, carry on, you clubber folks!
