Here's a bar made for mid-day siestas and late night kickbacks! Along the bar-filled outdoor strip, La Boca emerges as one of our personal favourites for its fun, boisterous vibes fit for a night out with friends. Food wise, order a handful to share — it's the best way to experience their diverse Latino menu. Even if you're not a chicken-wing lover like Burppler Jocelyn Ting, you still shouldn't pass up on the Corcovado Chicken Wings (RM23). The impressive Brazilian-inspired recipe hits the spot with sweet barbecue sauce and a dash of sour cream. For a more wholesome dish to go around, the Beef Fajitas (RM37) comes in a do-it-yourself skillet of sizzling beef steak slices, pico de gallo and salsa with soft tortillas on the side. Tipple with your buddies over the ultimate Mexican beer cocktail: Michelada (RM29), which blends Corona with lime, salt and Worcestershire sauce!

There is nothing accidental about this brownies bar, a handiwork of the same people behind Accidental Bakers. The walk-in kiosk greets you with bright, white bulbs, spotlighting their endless selections of brownies. Alas, there are no seatings to enjoy your spoils on the spot, but for a take-home (or office) treat, this will be your stop. Choose from their daily picks that range from Banana Blondies (RM8) to fruity Pistachio Cranberry Brownies (RM8) and cheerful Rainbow Blondies (RM8). Each slice is a dense, fudgy square, "as big as the size of one's palm", as Tastemaker Ben Gee puts it. Their best interpretation of a brownie comes in the Salted Caramel (RM8) flavour, which supplies a distinctively salty dimension to the sweet dessert.

For pastry fans, the name PAUL will ring a bell — a French one, no less. The world-renowned bakery now open for business offers all the more reason to visit the mall. Here, the 128-year-old brand's trademark class takes centrestage. Rows of fresh bakes are rimmed with gold accents and surrounded by it, a dining area gone luxe — all sure signs to make a date swoon over. While the store serves both sweets and savouries, it is the former that it's famed for. Case in point: the zesty Rhubarb Tart (RM16) made to delight with a flaky, butter-rich tart shell imported from France. Also loved are the Eclair Cafe (RM13) that sees a sleek, shiny coffee glaze atop airy, cream-filled choux pastry, and the Millefeuille Chocolat (RM16) beautifully layered in luscious chocolate cream and crisp puff pastry. The list goes on, and the good news is, you can always decide to take one home with you for later! Expect the pastry to be primly packed.

Tucked away in a quieter stretch of the shopping mall, Artelier makes an impeccable respite for good coffee and a break from the bustle. The mellow wood-and-grey decor is set against spaced out seats, providing for Zen vibes and a sense of privacy. Come for the Dirty (RM14), a no-ice concoction of ristretto and cold milk. Served without a straw, the drink comes in a sturdy glass that helps for smoother swigs! While the friendly baristas will talk you into trying their specialty Japanese black brews, cold or hot, there are also drinks for the non-coffee drinkers. These guys make a yummy Cold Chocolate (RM14), sans ice for stronger flavours. For something to eat, the kitchen dishes out clean, colourful smoothie bowls. Try the Pitaya Bowl (RM18), a tropical medley of dragonfruit, banana and mango. It's tasty, healthy and not to mention, really pretty to look at! Avg price per person: RM25

Celebrated for their Hokkien Mee (from RM14), Petaling Street's Kim Lian Kee operates a newer air-conditioned establishment in the day but also their original streetside stall in the night. To best experience their decades-old recipe for wok-fried thick noodles, hit up the hawker stall for a greasy late night bite — perhaps after a tipple around town! The thick dark noodles are a dream beyond doubt, fragrant of charcoal fire and glistening with (lots of) luscious pork lard. Put simply by Burppler yomisz eats, "This. Is. Heaven." Order also a glass of Herbal Tea (RM1.30) to wash down the sinful supper.

A stone throw's away from actual Petaling Street lies this stalwart for local delights. Tourists often make their way, but it is the stream of regulars who flock in daily that convinces us of its prowess. The old shoplot has cleaned up well — replete with air-conditioning and cosy seats — to serve customers from lunch through to dinner. Of great reputation, the Claypot Pearl Noodles (from RM12) makes a paramount order. Coloured dark by soy sauce, the lou shi fun (rat tail noodles) is heaped with minced pork and a raw egg yolk. The charm of this claypot noodle dish lies in its slightly rough-around-the-edges allure — it's what makes eating it a special and tasty experience. Otherwise, try their Majestic BBQ Pork Noodles (RM12) — deep-fried roasted pork with noodles doused in a luscious dark sauce.

It's not the first time we've hailed Kim Lian Kee's name for local late night eats. Forgive our many reiterations, and head down here after dark to try the satiating supper yourself! Their famously luscious Hokkien Mee (from RM10) is a favourite, flourished with the smoky wok hei flavour that comes from frying over charcoal fire. Thank the lard for the dish's trademark shine, which renders the thick noodles smoother than most, as well as the crispy lard tossed into the mix that gives the dish an extra crunch. Also contributing to the allure of dining at Kim Lian Kee come nightfall, is getting to see the otherwise bustling Chinatown at its quietest hour.
