Just because you’re up in the small hours, doesn’t mean your snack options should be restricted to the few usual suspects. These nocturnal eateries are here for you when you need them most, and what’s more, you can pay with card for the smallest of purchases.
Chimek had its origins in the Fremantle Markets, and after drawing crowds with their incredible fried chicken they opened a Northbridge outpost. Open for lunch and dinner until midnight every evening but Monday, Chimek Northbridge is ideal for that late-night bite. All their chicken meals are $12.50, and there’s a world to choose from; classic southern-fried chicken seasoned with cayenne pepper and paprika, the dak gang jeong with sticky gochu jang sauce, the guadalajara cilantro with jalapeños, and more. Chimek also has burgers and tasty sides.
Kitsch Bar Asia is the ideal Leederville spot to pop in and grab a quality bite to eat in the small hours. Sit yourself down under the lanterns and get ready for some delicious treats that won’t break the bank. The menu is designed to share and there’s plenty of snacks on offer if you’re just looking for a small bite (plus daily specials for bigger plates). Chow down on their soft-shell crab and pork corn tortilla with kimchi ($8.50), crispy salt and pepper tofu with sambal kecap ($9.60), or satisfy your sweet tooth with a peanut butter ice cream sandwich with chocolate cookie and salted caramel ($8).
Pleased To Meet You serves up quality Australian-American fare well into the night, and describe themselves as an “indoor food truck”. Open late from Wednesday through to Sunday, it’s the perfect spot to pop in before or during a night out in Northbridge. Their mess hall-style dining room has long tables spanning the width of the room to be shared by multiple diners, and there’s always a buzz. Small plates are designed to share. The beef tongue ruben bao or corn bread and maple butter will cost you less than a tenner, and their delicious watermelon salad with goats curd is $14. Hankering for some sweet treats? Look no further than their famous $9 S’Mores or their vanilla cheesecake with rhubarb and strawberry compot.
