Gathering your friends to relieve those damning late-night hunger pangs? Round after round of McDonald’s can be tiring, so how about some dim sum, bak chor mee, or burgers for supper?
It may feel like it’s not easy to find supper places in Singapore and get your late-night food cravings satisfied. Well, that’s only because you haven’t been searching hard enough.
AVENUE ONE has curated a list of late-night supper places in Singapore – with nothing above S$30. Whether you are craving for supper in Yishun or Orchard, there is something on this list for you no matter which part of Singapore you’re located in!
Note: the list only includes eateries that close at 11pm or later. If the establishment has more than one outlet, we’ll only list the ones that close late.
Supper places in Singapore: Dim Sum
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 – and of course, the fact that it opens till late night for suppers
Recommended eats include its Steamed Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun 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.
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. 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?
Opening hours: Mon to Fri: 9am – 3pm; 6pm – 3am | Sat & Sun: 9am – 4pm; 6pm – 3am 11am – 2.30pm; 6pm – 6am | Closed on Tuesdays
Address: 183/185/187/189/191 Jalan Besar, Singapore 208882

126 Dim Sum Wen Dao Shi
Another popular late-night Dim Sum stall, what makes 126 from Swee Choon is that it’s open daily, and for 24 hours a day!
Try their Pork Belly Buns (S$3.50), which is wrapped in a thinner version of the traditional kung ba pau bun, in the form of a roll, with juicy, succulent, fatty pork meat in the centre.
Another unique eat that makes them starkly different from other dim sum restaurants would be their crab dishes, such as their Stir Fried White Pepper Crab Bee Hoon (S$10) and their Mantou served with Chili Crab Sauce (S$6), for a true Singaporean feast.
Opening hours: Open 24 hours daily
Address: 126 Sims Avenue, Singapore 387449
Supper places in Singapore: Muslim food
Niqqi’s The Cheese Prata Shop
Tucked away in the Pasir Panjang housing area, it is more or less a hideout populated by NUS students staying in halls and even former students who come back for a hearty supper here for nostalgic reasons.
Don’t be misled by its name – while its signature may be its Cheese Prata, what draws the NUS crowd over is its long, extensive list of over 20 different prata, from “weirder” flavour combinations like egg, chicken, chili, and cheese prata to sweet prata like their Durian Prata, as well as the crunchy, towering Tissue Prata, ideal for sharing with a group of friends.
Opening hours: Open 24 hours daily
Address: 16 Clementi Road, Singapore 129747
Al-Ameen Eating House (permanently closed)
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, but it is an Indian food place, at heart.
The true stand-out dishes of this place are definitely its Butter Chicken and its Chicken Tikka. To get every last drop of that creamy butter chicken sauce, scoop it up with their chewy, oh-so-fluffy Naan.
Opening hours: Open 24 hours daily
Address: 438 Pasir Panjang Road, 118779
Yet another prata joint? Well, it seems that Indian-Muslim foods are popular supper places, 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.
Although slightly pricier than their regular prata, their Egg Benedict Prata, which, as strange as it sounds, actually goes pretty well together with the crunchy prata underneath.
The Rail Mall, Jalan Kua Kong, Thong Soon Avenue – 8am – 11pm daily
NEWest – 24 hours daily
Address: 396 Upper Bukit Timah Road, The Rail Mall, Singapore 678048 | 57B Jalan Tua Kong, Singapore 457253 | 1 Thong Soon Avenue, Singapore 787431 | 1 West Coast Drive, #01-108/108, NEWest, Singapore 128020
Supper places in Singapore: other local foods
Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice (Jian Dao Jian)
Another place to visit at Jalan Besar, this is where tired party-goers go to when Swee Choon’s filled to the brim. If you’re wondering what the name means, the eatery is actually named after its signature style of cutting its all its ingredients with a pair of scissors.
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, which, despite its rather old exterior, attracts a steady stream of loyal customers, especially as a late-night food hangout.
Opening hours: 11am – 3am daily
Address: 229 Jalan Besar, Singapore 208905
Hai Xian Zhu Zhou (permanently closed)
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, and an absolute comfort food for supper.
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 homely 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!
Opening hours: Bukit Panjang: Fri – Wed: 4am – 2.30pm; Thurs: Closed
Address: 163A Gangsa Road, Bukit Panjang, Singapore 671163
Guan Kee Grill Seafood
Located in Newton Food Centre, a famous hawker centre in its own right, it also has popular late-night supper haunts for you night bugs.
Looking for something to light your taste buds (and stomach) aflame? Look no further than Guan Kee Grill Seafood’s BBQ Sambal Stingray and dig into the spicy, tangy lime-infused sambal sauce and the fresh, fleshy meat of the stingray.
We’d say that anyone who doesn’t like such a winning combination deserves to get their citizenship revoked, but we’ll give you one chance to give this place a try. (Just kidding!)
Opening hours: 11am – 12am daily
Address: 500 Clemenceau Ave North, #01-53 Newton Circus Food Centre, Singapore 229495
Eminent Frog Porridge
Offering a variety of frog porridge, Eminent Frog Porridge is known for its delicious porridge – from its succulent juicy, tender meat to the soft, but not watery texture of the porridge to make for a piping hot, hearty meal, it is a meal that is hard to hate.
Its long snaking queues and drones of loyal customers are testament to its quality porridges. Without a doubt, this is definitely one of the most popular supper places in Singapore.
They also serve up other frog dishes like fried crispy frog and a whole frog, if you and your pals are inclined to try.
Opening hours: 4pm – 3.30am daily except Tuesdays
Address: 323 Geylang Road, Singapore 389359
Fei Fei Wanton Mee
Known for their bouncy egg noodles, and the very fact that it’s open for 24 hours, on all days of the week, keeps a steady stream of customers hoping to satiate their Wanton Mee fix, especially in the late night.
While the portions lean towards the small side, let’s be honest – it might very well be a blessing in disguise. After all, we know that frequent suppers are just bad, bad, bad to the bone for you and your health.
They also have meaty, tantalising meatballs if wanton mee’s simply not enough!
Opening hours: 6am – 2am daily
Address: 45 Joo Chiat Place, Singapore 427790
Ponggol Nasi Lemak
While its main outlet at Punggol doesn’t quite open till late for supper-goers, its other two outlets in Serangoon and Tanjong Katong are open till 3.30am and 2.30am respectively, every day.
Serving one of Singapore’s most easily recognised foods, Nasi Lemak, with its fragrant coconut rice, alongside various fried delights of your choice, Ponggol Nasi Lemak is certainly a hot favourite amongst Singaporeans, especially for late-night suppers.
Serangoon – 4.30pm – 12am daily
Tanjong Katong – 4.30pm – 11.30pm daily except Thursdays
Address: 965 Upper Serangoon Road, Singapore 534721 | 238 Tanjong Katong Road Singapore 437026
Yi Ji Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee
Just one of those days where you wanna stuff your face with greasy, super healthy, but oh-so-delicious simple meals?
Check out Yi Ji Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee, loved for its charred, slightly smokey, signature wok hei taste, and its fiery chili that’ll burn your mouth.
Opening hours: 4pm – 1am daily except Mondays
Address: 965 Upper Serangoon Rd, Singapore 534721
333 Bak Kut Teh
Supper at midnight is all about finding the right comfort foods, and Bak Kut Teh, another classic Singaporean dish, is one that truly warms the soul.
What 333 Bak Kut Teh does, is serve a hot, piping comforting bowl of Bak Kut Teh – and does it well.
Enjoy that hot peppery soup with a bowl of fragrant rice? We guarantee that you’ll be satisfied.
Opening hours: 6pm – 6am daily
Address: 325 Balestier Road, #01-01 J W Building, Singapore 329754
Hai Wei Yuan BBQ
A favourite hangout amongst the “Northerners”, this food centre is where you and your pals can share various supper dishes like BBQ Seafood, Stingray, Sambal La-La Clams, and Sambal Kang Kong.
Lip smacking spicy seafood over good company? Sounds like a good time!
There’s also a Hokkien Mee stall that opens till 12am there – you wouldn’t want to miss it.
Opening hours: 5pm – 12am daily except Mondays
Address: 20 Kensington Park Road, #01-01, Chomp Chomp Food Centre, Singapore 557269
Seng Huat Bak Chor Mee
Another classic Singaporean dish that is an essential to any hawker centre, what makes Seng Huat Bak Chor Mee so special, among other Bak Chor Mee stalls, is that its fishballs are handmade, and are perfectly smooth and bouncy.
Its noodles also have that classic bouncy texture that is so sought after in the perfect bowl of Bak Chor Mee, soaked in a flavourful spicy-sour, chili-vinegar sauce.
Open 24 hours daily – which makes it a perfect supper place – and located right opposite Bugis Junction, you won’t have to go out of your way just to get a satisfying bowl of Bak Chor Mee.
Bored of the regular ol’ Bak Chor Mee? Get their Abalone Bak Chor Mee, at only S$5 (relatively expensive for hawker fare, but hey, S$5 for a big slab of abalone? Sign us up!)
Opening hours: Open 24 hours daily
Address: 492 North Bridge Road, Singapore 188737
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 (S$8), 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 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 for supper!
Opening hours: 11am – 2.15pm; 5pm – 11pm daily
Address: 116 Commonwealth Crescent, #01-129, Singapore 140116
Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak
Don’t worry, Westies, we certainly haven’t forgotten about you! For supper in the West of Singapore, check out this simple, no-frills Nasi Lemak stall that sells only Nasi Lemak. Its flavourful coconut rice is paired with spicy sambal, otak, fried egg and crispy fried, succulent chicken, and is a winning combination that attracts long queues at almost all times of the day.
Boon Lay – 10.30am – 4pm; 5pm – 3.30pm daily except Mondays
Taman Jurong – 6am – 11pm daily
Address: Blk 221B, #01-106, Boon Lay Place,Singapore 642221 | 101 Yung Sheng Road, Singapore 618497 (Taman Jurong)

Beauty In The Pot
Scared all those late nights might be ruining your skin? Even though the fad of the collagen skin steamboat may be wayyy over, you might be interested to know that the Beauty In The Pot outlets open up till 3am.
Probably one of the most well-known collagen steamboats in Singapore, you can’t really go wrong with something that tastes good, and is supposedly good for you.
There are six soup bases available for you to choose from, including the Signature Beauty Collagen Broth (Shark’s Cartilage Soup), Signature Spicy Nourishing Soup (Pork Bone Soup), Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth, Cooling Coconut Broth, Longevity Wild Pine Mushroom Broth (Vegetarian), and Vitamin C Tomato Sweet Corn Broth – so you’ll definitely be spoilt for choice.

Nana Original Thai Food
Located in Golden Mile Complex, Singapore’s unofficial Little Thailand, you can be sure you’ll be getting authentic Thai fare at Nana Original Thai Food.
Feeling guilty about midnight snacking (but still need to satisfy those munchies)? Try out their Thai Mango Salad with the just right amount of spiciness, sourness, from the limes and mangoes, followed by a burst of sweetness from the onions and prawns for a truly tantalising, but guilt-free meal. Yum yum yum!
Other favourites include their fragrant, lemongrass-infused Tomyam Seafood Soup and their Pad Thai with Fresh Prawns if you’re looking for a sweeter Pad Thai with more of the sweet, Thai flair rather than the “localised” tone-down flavours.
Opening hours: Opens 24 hours daily at Aperia Mall and Clementi outlets
Address: 12 Kallang Avenue, #01-53A Aperia Mall, Singapore 339511 | 18 Clementi Road, Singapore 129747
Bar Bar Black Sheep
A pretty well-known bar that has several outlets, Bar Bar Black Sheep has a pretty unique concept of having three different kitchens which each specialise in a cuisine of their own – North Indian, Thai, and Western fare.
With so many kitchens to pick from, you never have to decide between their heavenly Butter Chicken or Hamburgers, when you can simply have both, on the same table here.
Did we also mention that there is NO Service Charge or GST whatsoever? Despite there being servers? Yeah.Crowd favourites would, of course, be their creamy, smooth, Butter Chicken, with generous chunks of chicken meat, and their soft, fluffy Naan. For drinks, try out their Mango
Lassi, a popular Indian drink made out of spice, yoghurt, and fruit to combat the tropical heat.\Plus, there’s a TV in the al fresco area, so you’ll truly feel like you’re at home with the buds (but with a variety of good food, and drinks!)
Bukit Timah – Mon to Fri: 3pm – 12am | Sat & Sun: 12pm – 12am

Ladyboy Mookata (permanently closed)
We know that fad diets like the recently popularised intermittent fasting tell us that late-night snacking is bad for our weight-loss goal, but hey, you wouldn’t be on this article if you weren’t looking to indulge. This is why something as sinfully decadent as this is going to tickle your palate for supper.
This is Ladyboy Mookata in a nutshell – free-flow of grilled meats galore, dipped in a moat of decadent, gooey, oh-so-sinful cheese. ‘nuff said.
We need to warn you about the long, snaking lines. Try to reserve seats ahead of time or be prepared to wait an hour or two to get your seats for a great supper.
Opening hours: Mon – Fri: 6pm – 2am | Sat: 5pm – 2am | Sun: 5pm – 1am
Address: 644 Geylang Road, Singapore 389574
Ramen Keisuke Lobster King (permanently closed)
Specialising in several variations of lobster ramen and nothing more – with its soup reminiscent of lobster bisque in taste, this, we think would be the ultimate seafood paradise for seafood lovers.
Want something lighter? Go for their lighter, clear broth, but for those who want a hearty, thick, satisfying broth – the thick, rich broth is the way to go.
Opening hours: Mon – Sun: 5pm – 6am
Address: 3C River Valley Road, #01-07, The Cannery, Singapore 179022
Supper places in Singapore: Western food
Another popular supper haunt for post-club party goers due to its proximity to nightclubs, Spize serves a wide selection of food ranging from Mediterranean, Indian, Thai food, and many other Singaporean street food.
With such a wide selection of food, this is the supper place you go with your friends when your friends reply to you with the ever-so-annoying “Anything! You decide!” Because Spize is literally “anything” embodied, so they have no reason to complain, really.
Bedok – Sun to Thu: 10am – 3am | Fri & Sat: 10am – 3.30am
Rifle Range – 8.30am – 11pm daily
Address: 336 Bedok Road, Bedok Shopping Complex, Singapore 469512 | 131 Rifle Range Road, #03-04, Singapore 588406
One Place Bistro and Bar
This may be one of the pricier supper places in our list, but we assure you the prices are completely worth it.
Serving up interesting, diverse foods you’re unlikely to get anywhere else, such as their Soft Shell Capellini Chili Crab Pasta and Beef and Beer Chili Fries, this is where you’d want to visit for good food, or just to indulge in novelty of the dishes.
Psst, try out their Surprize cocktail, where you’ll leave the mixologist to create exciting new concoctions not from the menu!
Opening hours: 5pm – 12am daily
Address: 273 Jalan Kayu, Singapore 799501
Fat Boy’s The Burger Bar
Featuring giant-sized, heart-stopping burgers with juicy patties, and decadent, super-sinful (but oh-so-delicious!) malt milkshakes, this is the perfect place to go to have a satisfying meal.
Must-tries would be The Elvis, made of a quirky combination of beef patty slapped on with grilled bananas, and creamy peanut butter, with a honey oat bun to top it all off. For those who want to stick with the classics go with Wimpy, 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.
Opening hours: Mon to Fri: 12pm – 11pm | Sat & Sun: 11am – 11pm
Addresses: 187 Upper Thomson Road, Singapore 574335
Supper places in Singapore: desserts
Rochor Beancurd House
Enjoy some traditional beancurd at Rochor Beancurd House – which has customers coming back for more if it’s silky-smooth Tau Huey, with just the right amount of sweetness.
They also have other snacks for you to get your late-night supper fix, such as their Portuguese Egg Tart, and their You Tiao, perfect for dunking into your Soya Bean Drink. Opening till 3am, this is the perfect supper spot in Singapore if you’re craving something sweet.
Opening hours: 24 hours daily
Address: 733 Geylang Road, Singapore 389644
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 and you’ll be in for a truly decadent experience.
Opening hours: Sun to Wed: 1pm – 11pm | Fri & Sat: 1pm – 1am | Closed on Thursdays
Address: 10 Maju Avenue, Singapore 556688
Ah Chew’s Desserts
Another conveniently located supper spot, right opposite of Bugis Junction, and just by Liang Seah Street, Ah Chew’s Desserts attracts long, snaking queues – both locals and Chinese foreigners alike, looking for satisfying desserts.
Must-tries would be their Fresh Milk Steamed Egg – 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!
Another must-try would be their Mango Pomelo Sago, which is flavourful, with generous helpings mango, sour pomelo, and sago in it.
P.S. Got a hankering for durian? Try out their Durian Sago, served with a generous helping of real durian and flavoured with real durians.
Opening hours: Mon to Fri: 12.30pm – 12am | Sat & Sun: 12.30pm – 1am
Address: 1 Liang Seah Street, #01-10/11 Liang Seah Place, Singapore 189032
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.
Must-tries would be their Mango Snow Ice (S$7.50), and their Durian Snow Ice (S$8.50), topped with a generous helping of Durian pulp right atop, and around the snow ice.
You can also consider their Signature Durian Waffle, which is topped with an even more generous helping of durian puree, and vanilla ice cream, with a fluffy, piping-hot, soft waffles beneath, it would make any durian-lover sing to the heavens.
Opening hours: Mon to Thu: 1pm – 12am | Fri & Sat: 1pm – 1am | Sun: 12.30pm – 12am | Closed on Wednesdays
Address: 8 Liang Seah Street, #01-04, Singapore 189029
Nunsongyee Korean Dessert Café (permanently closed)
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.
For those who don’t like going to the city area, don’t worry – Nunsongyee also has outlets in Tanjong Katong, Century Square, Upper Thompson, and Bukit Timah.
Try their signature Injeolmi Bingsu, or for something different, how about giving their Snow White Bingsu – an interesting mix of sweet white chocolate, cheese and biscuit bits – a whirl?
Intending to chat through the night with your friends? Get your coffee fix with their very own Coffee Bingsu, a favourite in Korea.
Opening hours: Open 24 hours daily
