From time to time we all find ourselves craving for a late night food fix after one... or six too many Jägermeister shots, be it a chicken rice, a good hearty Indian plate or a burger with the works.

We set out to take our late night to another level just so we had the perfect excuse to "pig out after midnight" - to sober up a bit before bed and especially to avoid a massive hangover...Let the games begin.... 

Senor Taco

Senor Taco

It all began in Clarke Quay 2009, with Señor Taco’s signature item “Tacos al Pastor”, fresh pork marinated in a special recipe of herbs, and spices. Needless to say Tacos al Pastor quickly became a local favourite in Singapore. Serving tasty Mexican-style street food such as Tacos and Quesadillas with a variety of fresh and spicy salsas, Senor Taco's is open until 2am for a reliable late night snack on a friday or Saturday evening. What more to drink? Try their Corona-rita, a mix of two beloved Mexican exports - the margarita and Corona beer.

126 Dim Sum

Located in Geylang, a district known for its late-night eateries, in a setting boasting glaring neon lights (to keep you alert) and plastic chairs ( to ensure you don't stay too long), 126 Dim Sum is your option amongst the not-so-savory eateries in this area. Open 24 hours, try the locally-inspired man tou with chili crab sauce or another alcohol soaker-upperer, pork belly buns, crispy bean curd or the fried chive biscuits....yum.

Boon Tong Kee

This is a really popular chicken rice stall with outlets right across the Island. They make "the real thing" chicken rice here as well as other Chinese-style dishes such as oyster sauce kai lan and braised tofu. Try ordering a portion of chicken rice and ask for lots of ginger and chilli sauce for an added taste explosion. The original Balestier store is open until 4:30am and the River Valley oulet, located at 425 River Valley Road is more convenient if you have been partying in town, or been out along the River and it's open until 4am.

Highlander

Highlander

The second Highlander outlet now located in Chijmes is open until 6am, and they offer a hearty menu, right through the night into the early hours. arounf 5am you may feel like scotch eggs and potted crab with truffle butter or one of the other delicious items. Bringing a piece of Scotland to the vibrant nightlife party central, Highlander reflects the pride and history of Scottish heritage with traditional antler chandelier decorations, alluring contemporary still spices of Scotland and tartan kilt-clad service crews.

This is awesome and great and true article for Singapore! It's not often we venture out past 3am, well not that often anymore. However lets face it, we are always hungry and if it's not the pie or sausage roll then you can't go past these awesome places. True!

Very useful. The Senor Tacos and Skinnys Lounge are perfect at the end of a long night on the tiles, both for food and ambience, and I'll keep the others in mind!

I really enjoyed reading this. There are not that many places around that are open to the wee hours and it's important to know where they are when you find yourself out with guests or even your local friends and all of a sudden you haven't eaten and it's 3 am in the morning... not a good scenario- but let's face it...it happens in Singapore to the best of us
