If you were the type of person who would “jio” your friends to drive into JB for a quick supper, chances are you were the cool friend. With the borders closed and safe distancing measures still in place, looking for an eatery that stays open past 10:30PM can be tough.
From a steaming bowl of ramen to more well-known supper haunts, we’ve rounded up 8 supper spots for those who find themselves looking for a bite past midnight!
Note: The opening hours of these restaurants are accurate based on the information listed on their official website. We recommend double-checking before heading down to the various eateries.

If you prefer eating something light late at night, a dessert cafe is the perfect supper spot for you.
Cue Wan Wan Thai Cafe, a hidden cafe in Bencoolen that serves up bingsu and toasts, with a Thai twist of course. Besides the usual bingsu flavours, the cafe serves up a Thai Milk Tea Bingsu ($10.90), which comes with a scoop of Thai Milk Tea ice cream perched on top. The best part of this dessert? The shaved ice itself is Thai Milk Tea flavoured too!
The cafe also serves up Shibuya Toast available in a variety of different flavours ranging from Strawberry Banana ($12.90) to Kaya ($8.90). They also offer Waffles ($6.90) for those who prefer something a little less sweet.

No list of supper spots is complete without mentioning a prata place, and for those who live in the North-East, Sri Sun Express might ring a bell.
The prata spot used to be located at Block 212 in Hougang, but they now operate out of Serangoon Gardens, with 3 other outlets islandwide. If you’re wondering what makes this prata special, it’s open 24 hours. Yes, you read that right. If you’re craving Indian food at 4AM, this is THE place to go.
Sri Sun Express has one of the most extensive menus we’ve come across, with everything ranging from the usual prata to North Indian cuisine to Western food and even an Impossible menu range that features the popular plant-based meat.
Another thing the prata joint is known for is its drink towers, which come with a staggering 3L of your drink of choice! Options range from Iced Teh to Sugarcane and even Iced Milo, though be warned that the latter might leave you feeling heaty.
For those who are a little too lazy to head out, Sri Sun Express also offers delivery from its 4 outlets.
