32 affordable supper places to hang out at with your pals till late at night – with options going for less than S$5!

Rounding up your friends to relieve those damning late-night hunger pangs?

Round after round of McDonald’s can be tiring after probably, the first few times, so how about some dim sum, bak chor mee, or burgers for supper?

Fussy eater? No worries – we’ve curated a list of 32 supper places – with nothing above SGD 30 (and we’re talking about buffets, too!) – for you and your friends to enjoy, be it over a HTHT sesh with you and your pals, or to just have a good food, in good company.

1. Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant

The number 1 on our list, this name is no stranger to fellow well-seasoned night dwellers, and even those who aren’t.

A rather no-frills dim sum place, the main attraction of this place is its affordability, and its variety of dim sum.

Recommended eats include its Steamed Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun (SGD 3.60) more known amongst Singaporeans as Liu Sha Bao, which is exactly what you’d expect from one – a soft, fluffy bun, with a hot, gooey, custardy centre. Think all Liu Sha Bao are the same? Check out this raving review of it.

Alternatively, order their Sweet Potato Salted Egg Balls which still retain the gooey custard centre, but with a chewy exterior.

Another must-eat would be its Char Siew Bao (SGD 1.80). Swee Choon keeps their Bao big and done in the same tried-and-loved recipe since the start of its 40 years of establishment.

Sink your teeth into its soft fluffy, exterior and sweet pork char siew filling, what more could you ask for?

Price range: Prices unavailable online. Prices vary from around SGD1 – SGD4, per dim sum. Menu can be viewed here, on their website.

Opening hours: Mon – Sat: 11AM – 2.30PM; 6PM – 6AM | Sun & PH: 10AM – 3PM; 6PM – 6AM

Another place to visit at Jalan Besar, this is where tired party-goers go to when Swee Choon’s filled to the brim. The eatery is named after its signature style of cutting its all its ingredients with a pair of scissors, if you’re wondering.

Not to be thought of as a lesser supper hangout than Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant, Scissors Cut Curry Rice serves a pretty mean Hainanese Curry Rice with Fried Pork Cutlet (SGD 3.50), which, despite its rather old exterior, attracts a steady stream of loyal customers, especially during supper.

Price range: SGD 3.50 for a plate of Hainanese Curry Rice. Menu unavailable online.

Opening hours: Mon-Sun: 11AM – 3.30AM

Address: 229 Jln Besar, Singapore 208905

Tucked away in the Pasir Panjang housing area, it is more or less a hideout populated by NUS Hall students, or former students.

Don’t be mislead by its name – while its signature may be its Cheese Prata, what draws the NUS crowd over is its long, extensive list of 20 over different prata, from weirder flavour combinations like egg, chicken, chili and cheese prata (SGD 4.80) to sweet prata like their Durian Prata (SGD 2.50) as well as the crunchy, towering Tissue Prata (SGD 2.50), ideal for sharing with a group of friends.

Price range: Prata starts from SGD 0.90 and onwards

Opening hours: Open 24 hours daily

Address: #01-00, 18 Clementi Road, Singapore 129747

Another popular supper hangout for NUS students living in the nearby campus(es), it may have almost every cuisine under its proverbial umbrella, from Thai, to Chinese, to Malay, to Western food, it is an Indian place, at heart.

The true stand-out dishes of this place are definitely its Butter Chicken (SGD8), and its Chicken Tikka (SGD9). To get every last drop of that creamy butter chicken sauce, scoop it up with their chewy, oh-so-fluffy Naan (SGD1).

Source: eatbook.sg

Instant noodles, we can almost unanimously agree, are one of the world’s tastiest, sinful things. So bad for our health, but so, so tasty.

Ke Kou Mian, as this humble hawker stall is commonly referred to, attracts absolute drones of people to the stall. It cooks the oh-so-comforting Koka instant noodles, jam-packs it with homey ingredients like seafood, meats and veggies, and gives you four broths to choose from: seafood, pork, tom yam, or spicy, for just an overall hearty meal.

And if you’re worried about it being overly salty or having that tell-tale MSG taste? Plenty of reviewers online would beg to differ, even saying that it tastes healthy, and generally less salty yet more flavourful, compared to your run-of-the-mill MSG-saturated instant noodle broth.

Besides, if you were out with your friends looking for supper in the middle of the night, could there not be a more comforting option than a piping hot bowl of instant noodles?

P.S. For the super health conscious, don’t worry, they have other healthier noodle options like beehoon, ee mian and various others if you still wanna have your hearty bowl of soup, and eat it too!

Price range: From SGD3 for a small pork broth bowl

Yet another prata joint? Well, it seems that Indian-Muslim food are popular supper areas, so sit tight, strap in, and enjoy the ride.

But what makes Springleaf Prata so different from all the other prata joints are their ultra HUMONGOUS portions of prata, as well as free self-service helpings of their delicious curry – both chicken and fish curries, might we say, were definitely punchy, flavourful, and slurp-worthy on their own if we didn’t feel so guilty of our growing waistlines.

Air-conditioned, relatively spacious, with tasty, hearty prata and other Indian foods to enjoy, we’d be hard pressed to find anyone who wouldn’t be having a good time here.

Only a walking distance from the famous Chomp Chomp Food Centre, oblong cafe is where you can head over for your ice cream-and-waffles fix after supper.

Not just your run of the mill ice-cream-and-waffles cafe, Oblong serves flavoured waffles, instead of simply settling for your average, plain waffles.

But wait, that’s not all – what oblong does differently is to also put a dollop of cream in between the two waffles served, depending on what complements your chosen waffle. Truly, all about reinventing the classic waffle.

Despite the many flavours of waffles such as Salted Egg, Tiramisu, Charcoal and many more, many patrons’ ultimate favourite would be the Red Velvet Waffles, that has a dollop of cream cheese in between with notes of chocolate singing through the fluffy waffles. Top it off with ice-cream and a cuppa coffee for their set (SGD10) and you’ll be in for a truly decadent experience.

Price range: Plain buttermilk waffles go from SGD4.50, and one scoop of ice cream from SGD3.30.

For those who want to stick with the classics go with Wimpy (SGD15), made of a classic combination of a fried egg, turkey bacon, cheddar, bbq sauce, with a choice of a beef or lamb patty, and finally, topped off with sesame seed buns.

Another conveniently located supper spot, right opposite of Bugis Junction, and just by Liang Seah Street, Ah Chew’s Desserts iattracts long, snaking queues – both locals and Chinese foreigners alike, looking for satisfying desserts.

Must-tries would be their Fresh Milk Steamed Egg (SGD3.30 – 3.50) – which you can order in either hot or cold variants (we like the hot one!)

For the more health-conscious, there is an option available without the egg yolk, and just the egg white. Personally, we prefer the egg white version, for a clearer, less eggy taste, but for those who love eggs, the egg yolk option may just be your cup of tea!

28. Dessert First

Often overshadowed by the vastly more “trendy” Korean Bingsu, the Taiwanese Snow Ice doesn’t hold back in its punches – what makes it different from Bingsu and our local Ice Kachang is its differently flavoured, and super vibrant smooth ice.

So instead of the more subtle milk-flavoured snow ice you’d get from your regular, run-of-the-mill Bingsu, Snow Ice hits you with a flavourful punch, that’ll have you wanting more.

29 Two Chefs Eating Place

A rather renowned zichar place amongst fellow foodies, this rather humble-looking coffeeshop is nearly always packed with eager patrons – mostly big family groups – despite its appearance.

Affordable, yet delicious, the unofficial star dish of Two Chefs would arguably be its Butter Pork Ribs (SGD8), pork ribs fried to crispy perfection whilst retaining its tenderness, sprinkled with condensed milk powder.

While it may sound like a rather odd combination, it works surprisingly well together, with the condensed milk powder adding a nice touch of sweetness, without overpowering the saltiness of the pork.

For those who love their coffee, there is also a coffee variation of the Butter Ribs, which is also equally as tasty. Pick your poison!

Do take note that the Sin Ming outlet closes earlier than the Commonwealth outlet, at 10.30PM compared to 11.30PM, so for your late night supper, the Commonwealth outlet may be a better bet!

Price range: From SGD4 – SGD23 (for seasonal seafood)

Opening hours: Mon: 5PM – 11.30PM | Tues – Sun: 11.30AM – 2.30PM; 5PM – 11.30PM | Closed on Every Last Mon of the Month

Address: #01-129, 116 Commonwealth Crescent, Singapore 140116 | #02-01, 409 Sin Ming Avenue, Singapore 570409

Since we already have so many savoury places that open 24 hours daily on our list, how about some icy, cold, sweet desserts?

With its main flagship outlet located in the middle of Rochor and Bugis, and the only outlet that is open 24/7, Nunsongyee is no stranger to the student crowd – particularly those from the neighbouring schools nearby, from the likes of NAFA, SOTA, and SMU.

Try their signature Injeolmi Bingsu (SGD14.90), or for something different, how about giving their Snow White Bingsu (SGD18.90) – an interesting mix of sweet white chocolate, cheese and biscuit bits – a whirl?

Located almost right next to Zouk, Ramen Keisuke Lobster King is the place you want to go if you’re looking for a nice hearty affordable meal.
