Best Supper Spots in Singapore 2016

Best Supper Spots in Singapore 2016

There is something strangely gratifying, and a little naughty, about supper. It's usually spontaneous and sometimes even unnecessary, but for night owls, you cannot argue with the need to quieten a growling belly at midnight. We trawled the island in search of the tastiest places to eat after dark — from back alley zi char in Geylang and Thai boat noodles in Selegie, to the spiciest Hokkien mee and the fluffiest prata in Macpherson, we have packed this guide with ideas for your next supper. Go on, live a little dangerously.

Housing not just one, but two stellar supper options, KPT at Bishan should be high on your supper list. The well-loved kway chap stall opens till 4am, promising lovingly-braised intestines, tender pork belly and comforting tau pok alongside silky smooth kway. Alternatively, don't hesitate to join the queue for Ding Ji's excellent fish maw soup and bak chor mee for $8. The soup is robust and satisfying from simmering overnight, and is made luxurious with good quality fish maw. The noodles may not be vinegar-y enough for those who love the pungent kick, so ask for more if you do! Ding Ji is open 24 hours, so come at any time of night!

Just a three minute walk from Beauty World MRT Station, Oven & Fried Chicken is the place to go to if you're hankering for juicy fried chicken in the night. The use of rice flour to coat the chicken allows the skin to stay crispy even when tossed in a delicious sauce. Order the Sauced Soy Sauce Original (half $20/whole $35) — crispy fried chicken tossed in a generous amount of Korean style soy sauce. For those looking for more heat, order the Padi Garlic Wings (half $21/whole $36) which come slicked in a fiery garlic sauce, and topped with a copious amount of freshly cut chili padi. They close at midnight daily, except on Saturdays (1am).

Located along North Bridge Road, The Ramen Stall is a Halal-certified shop serving affordably priced Japanese dishes till 6am. Swing by after a late movie with friends or after a long night at work with your colleagues and order a piping hot bowl of Volcano Ramen ($11). The chicken-based broth is robust in flavour and is sure to satisfy with slices of chicken chashu and bamboo shoots. Choose from three levels of spiciness — you might want to stick to Level 2 unless you really love a kick! If you're in the mood for something lighter, have the Kaisen Don ($16.90). The rice comes topped with freshly sliced salmon and tuna cubes.

If you love eating at Hai Di Lao, you're going to enjoy this spot. Shang Pin is similar in concept and variety, but sports a simpler, more casual ambience and a more affordable price tag. Just a five-minute walk from Dhoby Ghaut MRT and open till midnight daily, it can get crowded but thankfully does not have a crazy queue. Choose from three soup bases ($16) — Chicken, Sichuan Spicy and the crowd favourite, Tomato. Then pick the ingredients to go into the broth — don't miss out on the Black Pork ($10) and Shrimp Paste ($12)! You'll also get to witness a noodle master at work, spinning wonderfully slippery Kungfu noodles ($3). Note that half portions are not available. Pro tip: Make reservations if you can!

Known for their fiery, extra spicy homemade chili, this is the perfect supper for spice lovers and it's great that the stall stays open till 3am daily. A plate of Spicy Hokkien Mee ($4 for small, $6 for medium) boasts a good ratio of noodles to bee hoon, and comes well-soaked in an umami broth, packing in lots of flavour. Good thing about this coffeeshop is that it also houses the popular Punggol Nasi Lemak — perfect for a group of friends who can't decide where to head to for supper. Pro tip: Mix in a third of the chili first before deciding how much more heat you can handle!

A line forms outside Quality Hotel Marlow's Quality Cafe as early as 10pm for their Supper Buffet (available 10:30pm to 12:30am daily). At $14.80/pax, we can understand why! You’ll get to enjoy a spread of porridge dishes, yong tau foo, laksa and char kway teow. Crowd favourites like the fresh fish and steamed squid go fast and will be replaced with fried items, so make sure you’re quick on your feet if you enjoy those! With a laid-back atmosphere and warm comfort food, it’s no wonder it attracts an eclectic crowd of families, old friends and couples. Speaking of atmosphere, you'll also be entertained (whether you like it or not) by the live band next door belting out heartfelt renditions of old tunes and trendy pop songs, complete with synchronised dancing.

Open daily from 6pm to 5am, this late night ramen joint is the place to go after hours of merry making in the Clarke Quay area. Choose from four different styles of ramen, all of which come with a French lobster base broth that has been simmered for six hours. For a jolt of heat to wake you up from a tipsy stupor, go for the Spicy Miso Lobster Broth Ramen ($15.90), which comes topped with tender pork belly, chicken char siew, black pepper prawn wantons and bamboo shoots. The tongue-numbing, flavourful broth is a blend of Sichuan sancho peppers, chilli oil and three types of miso. They also serve a very tasty Fluffy Omelette Rice ($10.80).

Situated under Block 127 at Kim Tian Road, this air-conditioned bak kut teh store stays open till 3am, making for a perfect place to sober up after a wild night. It is opened by the children of the Outram Park Ya Hua Rou Gu Cha's owners, so you'll still be getting their comforting, peppery soup here. Tuan Yuan Pork Ribs Soup has an automated ordering system, allowing you to send orders directly through their phone app without being physically present in the queue — perfect for customers who want to skip the wait. Try the Tuan Yuan Spare Ribs Soup ($9), with the option of lean or fatty meat. All soups also come in three peppery levels you can choose from. Don't be shy to ask for more soup — it's refillable and goes well with their signature Fried Dough Sticks ($1.50 per bowl) that are freshly fried upon order. Pro tip: Come after midnight to receive 20 percent off your bill — it's part of their supper promo, valid till 30 June 2016!

After dinner along Upper Thomson Road, walk over to this white-themed cafe in Thomson V One to continue your conversation. Open till midnight on Fridays and Saturdays and till 11pm on other days, Nook & Cranny (previously named Five by Five) dishes out waffles, ice cream and drinks to please your sweet tooth. Order the Waffle ($6) — it is crisp on the outside, warm and fluffy on the inside, and rather interestingly, tastes like McD's pancakes. Pair it with a scoop (or two) of ice cream — top flavours include the refreshing but rich Coconut Taro ($4.80), Thai Milk Tea ($4.20) and Salted Caramel ($4.80). Wash it all down with a cup of iced Matcha Latte ($7.50) that comes with azuki red beans.

Set in a back alley in the heart of Geylang, this late night joint (open till 3am daily) draws the crowds with its signature JB San Lou Bee Hoon (from $7 for small). Despite its nondescript appearance, the bee hoon is expertly fried and flattened, resulting in a 'pancake' of silky soft vermicelli with perfectly charred bits — simple but so good! They also do mean Salted Egg Prawn Balls (from $20 for small), Fried Garlic Chilli Clams (from $16 for small) and White Pepper Crabs (market price) slicked in an unusual garlicky white pepper sauce that allows the natural sweetness of the crabs to shine through. Most of the small dishes are good to share between two or three.

Sometimes all you want at 3am is a good bowl of noodles you can slurp up in two minutes before heading home. Seng Huat is probably your best bet — conveniently located opposite Bugis Junction and open around the clock. Go for the bak chor mee sua or mee pok ($3.50), it's really up to you, but don't miss the chili! Add as much vinegar as you like, stir well, and enjoy. Pro tip: ask for extra mushrooms for extra umami-ness!

Gu Thai Noodle Cafe takes over Montana's space at PoMo, serving authentic Thai dishes and desserts till 5am. Like its sister outlet Noodle Cafe at Golden Mile, Gu Thai Noodle Cafe also serves the same famous $1.90 Boat Noodles here. Typically sold in small bowls along Thailand's floating markets, the bite-sized portion of noodles and meat — usually pork or beef — owes its rich, robust flavours to the darkened broth. For a more substantial meal, opt for the large Boat Noodles ($6 for pork, $6.80 for beef). There are four levels of spiciness and five types of noodles to choose from — the kuey tiao noodles in less spicy broth is the crowd favourite. Turn up the heat if you like with the chilli flakes available at every table.
