Late-night food spots in town
Getting hangry is the sole reason why I carry around a snack pouch. But after working out or watching a late-night movie in town, I don’t just want to nibble on nuts or fruits. A filling meal is what I need to satisfy my stomach, the bottomless pit. If this sounds all too familiar, we’ve got just a list for this. Check out our curation of 10 late-night food supper spots in town to dine till the wee hours of the morning.

This popular late-night food joint has twin ($8++) and quart ($5++) pots which are great for large groups to share a variety of their rich soup bases, such as Beauty Collagen and Cooling Coconut. Plus, you’ll get 20% off their food items when dining in after 10:30pm, so go HAM on their Signature Homemade Fish Tofu ($2.20++) and Fried Beancurd Skin ($5++).

I’ve stumbled into Ramen Keisuke Lobster King one too many times after a night of club-hopping. This ramen stall serves springy noodles in a rich lobster broth that would perk you up after dancing for hours. Get the Lobster Broth Ramen Special with Rich Creamy Soup ($20.90++) for a full experience of their lobster-bisque-like soup which takes four to six hours to prepare. A visit to a ramen joint isn’t complete without an order of Pork Gyozas ($8.80++). These crispy dumplings are stuffed with a juicy pork filling and pan-fried to golden perfection.

You can’t go wrong with a hearty bowl of wanton mee to satisfy the late-night food munchies. Though there are no hawker centres in the vicinity, you can count on Graffiti Cafe by the famous Pontian Wanton Noodles. This eatery is open 24/7, so you can get their Wanton Mee ($4.20) at any time of the day. If the slices of sweet and savoury char siew in this dish are not enough, add on some Crispy Fried Wanton ($1.60 for six, $3 for twelve pieces).

Rochor Original Beancurd is one of the less sinful places on our supper list with their house-made soya bean desserts. My usual order consists of their silky Hot Beancurd ($1.20) and Cold Soyabean Milk ($1.20), which I usually mix together. For a greater depth of textures, get the fluffy Butterfly ($1) or crispy You Tiao ($1) to dunk into this dessert. They’ve jumped onto the bandwagon of Pudding Beancurd ($1.50), which features a sweetened beancurd, but I still prefer the traditional version.

Opening hours: Mon-Thur 11am to 1am, Fri 11am to 3am, Sat 12pm to 3pm, Sun 12pm to 1am
