It’s 2am in the morning and you’re famished from partying and drinking all night. We’ve all been there – been drunk, tired, and hungry but with nowhere to eat.
Besides good old McDonald’s, there are actually quite a few places in Singapore you can go to feed your hungry soul at odd hours of the night/morning. So, instead of stuffing your face with french fries and chicken nuggets, head down to one of these popular supper spots – they’re sure to curb those post-clubbing hunger pangs!
1. Nunsongyee Korean Dessert Café
For those of you who crave sweet desserts in the odd hours of the morning, make a trip down to Nunsongyee Korean Dessert Café, a Korean Bingsu cafe that is open 24/7!
If you want something cold to combat all that alcohol you’ve been downing, try the Snow White bingsu ($18.80). The cheese strips and white chocolate meld into one beautiful dessert, giving you a refreshing bowl of milky shaved ice to dig into.
The Garlic Cheese Injeolmi toast ($9.90) will awaken your tastebuds as you dig into the buttered slices of bread toasted with garlic cheese. Cut open the toast to reveal bits of chewy mochi, injeolmi powder and almond slices! Definitely a sweet way to end the night!

The Chicken Green Curry ($6), filled with a generous serving of tender chicken is just the right amount of creamy. Order a bowl of rice – or two – to finish up every last drop of the curry!

4. Casuarina Curry House
Prata is a popular supper option in Singapore and Casuarina Curry Restaurant is a hotspot for prata lovers in town.
The plain prata ($1.30) is light, fluffy, and not too oily. With a crispy texture and slightly buttery taste, the pratas here are hugely satisfying.
Casuarina Curry House pays tribute to local flavours with its Ondeh Ondeh prata ($4.90). While slightly pricey for prata, its unique flavour makes it worth every buck. The crispy tissue prata is folded with pandan jelly cubes, a scoop of coconut ice cream, shredded coconut, and is drizzled with gula melaka.

5. Beach Road Scissors Cut Curry Rice (Jalan Besar)
Nothing is as delightful as a saucy, messy plate of curry rice when the city is fast asleep. This glorious plate of scissors-cut rice at Jalan Besar is liquid gold for late night party-goers. Slap a pork cutlet, braised cabbage, and a gooey fried egg onto your rice! As with any cai fun store, the price differs depending on what ingredients you pick, but the price hovers around $3.
If you have extra calories to spare, add the Ngoh Hiang to your rice – it has a nice crunch from the water chestnuts within the fried, crispy skin.
The best part of this hearty and economical meal is the mixture of 4 different types of sauces on the mountain of food – curry, braised gravy, chilli oil, and chilli sauce. A beautiful mess indeed.
