Already a hot spot for its unrivalled selection of rums and charcoal-fired meats, Sugarhall continues its winning streak with an after-hours menu, designed by head chef Polo Seah, to help tummies sleep happy. Light bites include sticky prunes and pears wrapped in bacon, called the Devils on Horseback ($8), and chunky beef skewers ($12). Night owls will appreciate tucking into a steaming bowl of ramen ($16) loaded with kimchi bacon, pork belly, egg and garlic confit, or our dinner favourite of smoke-kissed Cape Grim hanger steak with chimichurri and fries ($20).
Available Mon-Sat 10pm-midnight.
The Clifford Pier's local cuisine is pricey, but consider it a top-up for the setting: an impressively cavernous dining room, steeped in Singaporean history. While you contemplate the space’s past life as a port of call with your feet firm on the plush carpets, dig into the fried carrot cake made atas with sweet soy prawns ($18), roti prata with an accompanying warm bowl of chicken curry ($18), or – if you're feeling particularly hedonistic – the half hunks of orange and white lobster meat in a roll ($32).
Available Sun-Thu 10pm-midnight; Fri-Sat 10am-1am.
The queues for this homegrown chimaek joint are daunting at dinnertime, so load up during the wee hours instead. Chicken Up's soy ganjang ($12/four) and sweet yangnyum chilli ($12/four) wings are among our favourite KFC (that's Korean fried chicken for you) in the city. And we love getting sloppy with the kimchi-slathered fries ($18) and fingers of battered onion ($12) in between lugs of fruity soju cocktails ($25-$38).
Available Mon-Thu 5.30pm-2am; Fri & Sat 5.30pm-3am; Sun 5.30pm-midnight.
Hong Kongers typically get up bright and early for their dose of yum cha, but life sometimes takes you on adventures at night, then hurls a hankering for cheong fun ($5.50) or char siew baos ($5.40) your way. Tim Ho Wan's Aperia Mall outlet throws in air-conditioned comfort while you dig into Ma Lai Gou steamed cakes ($4.10), pan fried carrot cakes ($5.10), and century egg and pork congee ($4.50) – so make this your supper and don’t worry about having to chase the dim sum cart when you're hungover the next morning.
Available daily 24 hours.
