Address: 536A Upper Serangoon Road, Singapore 534552
Opening Hours: 24 hours

This modest coffee shop, tucked under the Upper Serangoon viaduct and located at the corner of a road junction, is only a stone’s throw from Serangoon MRT Station. Its much raved-about Roti John is one of the best value-for-money versions attested by many foodies. The perfectly toasted bun (without the grease) is filled with a substantial amount of eggs, onions and chicken (or mutton), and topped with generous portions of mayonnaise and tomato sauce. Also recommended are its prata and biryani.

Address: 43 Jalan Besar, Shing Boon Hwa Food Centre, Singapore 208804
Opening Hours: 24 Hours (Closed on Sunday)

A bowl of springy noodles with fresh prawns and tender pork ribs swimming in rich seafood broth makes Hock Prawn Mee one of our all-time comfort foods. While it may not be the best version around town, it’s more than good enough to satisfy our prawn noodle cravings in the wee hours of the morning. The flavourful soup is definitely the highlight. And don’t forget a dash (or two) of chilli padi for that extra oomph.

Opening Hours: 5pm – 3.30am

So, this may not be your idea of a late-night eat but Lion City Frog Porridge has been consistently ranked as one of the must-try frog porridge places in Singapore and the throngs of waiting customers is testament to its goodness. Indulge in a bowl of steaming hot porridge with succulent frog meat cooked in spicy thick kungpow sauce served in claypots, and remember to drizzle the yummy sauce over your porridge. Best eaten on a chilly night to warm you up.

4. Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak

Address: 221B Boon Lay Place, #01-106 Singapore 642221
Opening Hours: 5pm – 2am / Facebook


It’s hard to miss this stall – just look for the longest queue. This legendary nasi lemak stall truly lives up to its name, power indeed. Get the chicken set meal that comes with well-marinated and perfectly deep-fried crispy chicken wing, ikan bilis, fried egg and aromatic coconut rice. And of course the sambal chilli – slightly sweet but packs a punch – is an excellent complement. Don’t miss the yummy otah too. A great supper place for the westsiders.

Address: 532 Upper Serangoon Road, Singapore 534547
Opening Hours: Start between 6.45pm to 73.0pm and closes about 2am. (Closed on Wednesday)

This renowned fish ball noodle stall requires no introduction. Famed for its long queues and erratic opening hours, you could easily end up waiting at least 30 to 45 minutes for your bowl of goodness. Think huge homemade springy fishballs, (to-die-for) he giao (fish dumplings) and fried bean curd stuffed with fish paste; now mix all of that together with your favourite noodles and Song Kee’s special chilli paste (also homemade)…. one word: shiok! Don’t even get us started on the heavenly cubes of tiny, crispy pork lard!

Address: 400 Orchard Towers, #03-28, Orchard Road Singapore 238875
Opening Hours: 7pm – 3am / Facebook

Located right in the heart of the infamously seedy Orchard Towers, Korat Thai Café isn’t exactly an ideal supper place for most Singaporeans. But we bet you’ll change your mind once you tuck into their deep-fried crispy chicken skin and tom yum soup. While the unsavoury venue might put you off, the food shouldn’t disappoint especially when the chef used to cook for the Thai royal family. Also, you’ll get to indulge in some entertaining people-watching as you chow down a reasonably priced hearty meal with your friends.

Address: 115 Bukit Merah View Food Centre, #01-78 Singapore 151115
Opening Hours: About 11pm to 3am

After a night of boozing, how about some soupy yong tau foo to lessen the guilt of calories input from your alcoholic beverages? But first, you have to brave the flock of supper goers who swarm this famous stall known for its one of a kind ikan bilis-infused soup and variety of less common yong tau foo ingredients – including pork belly, fish maw and pig stomach. And if you survive the wait, you’ll be rewarded with a bowl of intensely flavourful broth that warms your belly and calms your frenzied soul. Served with noodles on the side.

Address: 48 Tanjong Pagar Road, #01-01 Singapore 088469
Opening Hours at Tanjong Pagar: 5.30pm – 2am (Monday – Thursday); 5.30pm – 3am (Friday & Saturday); 5.30pm – 12am (Sunday)

Address: 277C Compassvale Link #01-13 (No. 2A) Singapore 543277
Opening Hours: 24 Hours

In the mood for greasy food at midnight? Let’s face it, nothing satisfies a fried food craving like fried chicken. While some would readily declare Chicken Up as “the best Korean fried chicken in Singapore”, others might say it’s overrated. We personally think it’s yummy enough to satisfy our late night cravings. Dig into their signature double-fried chicken – marinated in flavours like SpicyUp, garlic-soy and a sweet, tangy YangNyum blend. Wash everything down with their watermelon soju or Korean beer. And kimchi fries – must try.

9. Hoe Kee Porridge

Address: 1 Kadayanallur Street, #01-45, Maxwell Food Centre Singapore 069184
Opening Hours: 6.30am to about 2.30am

When it comes to a bowl of comforting and delicious gooey congee, Hoe Kee porridge is a strong contender. The stall, which opens late into the night, is famous for their generous servings of tasty Cantonese-style porridge. Their best sellers are the pork and century egg as well as raw sliced fish porridge. The perfect soul food for any day, really.

Address: 181 – 191 Jalan Besar Singapore 208882
Opening Hours: 6pm to 6am (Closed on Tuesday) / Website

This list wouldn’t be complete without the one and only Swee Choon Dim Sum. Famed for its reasonably priced array of Shanghai and Hong Kong delicacies – xiao long bao, la mian, red bean paste pancake and the must-try mee sua kueh (deep-fried vermicelli cake). Undoubtedly a popular supper spot, be prepared to queue but it’s worth the wait.
