Hong Chang Frog Porridge & BBQ Fish
Operating Hours: 3pm to 2am from Tuesdays to Sundays
This supper stalwart has amassed quite a big following of midnight diners despite its rather secluded location along Braddell Road. Reputed for its one-of-a-kind frog porridge and BBQ Sambal Stingray, Hong Chang Frog Porridge & BBQ Fish best exemplifies the heartiness of simple comfort food. Their signature frog porridge dish is really an ingenious combination if you think about it – the generous helping of silky congee beautifully soaks up the thick and flavoursome gravy. And if frog legs aren’t your thing, there’s the usual zi char classics like Sambal Kangkong and Cai Po Omelette to accompany your porridge.

89.7 Supper Club
Operating Hours: 24 hours daily
Like its name suggests, 89.7 Supper Club is more of a collection of food stalls than a specific eatery. Frequent diners would know just how extensive its menu is, with a multitude of cuisine types all consolidated within a single multi-paged menu. Hankering for some crispy Roti Prata? 89.7 Supper Club has a whole list of flatbread variants to choose from. Want a simple bowl of noodles? It’ll probably not be as simple to decide given they have a whole array of noodle dishes – from Hor Fun and Hokkien Mee to Wanton Noodles. And the list goes on.

126 Dim Sum Wen Dao Shi
Operating Hours: 24 hours daily
Some of you reading this may simply be seeking small bites for supper rather than a lavish feast. If so, 126 Dim Sum Wen Dao Shi is just the spot for you. Do not be fooled by the simplicity of its exterior; its dim sum menu has over 100 dishes, ranging from Lo Mai Kai (glutinous chicken rice) and Fried Scallop Rolls to Paper-wrapped Fried Chicken Wings. Unlike other conventional Dim Sum supper spots, this eatery has some of Singapore’s most affordable dim sum dishes (though prices may have increased slightly since the pandemic). 126 Dim Sum Wen Dao Shi may look understated from the outside, but it’s always buzzy and welcoming inside.
