It is 5am and you’re just done with a long day after an entire night of OT (or partying and clubbing).
Hunger pangs start to kick in and while this definitely isn’t a problem for most of us during the daytime—given the countless edible options in our foodie nation—there would be a serious headache if you’re hungry during ungodly hours.
If you’re tired of calling up McDonald’s delivery services and are looking for something along the lines of a piping hot bowl of bak kut teh, fishball noodles or dim sum, fret not for here are 10 eateries in Singapore that are open 24/7.

Perhaps one of the first few cocktails you’d start with when you first hit a club would be the classic Gin and Tonic: a highball cocktail made with Gin and Tonic water poured over ice.
While we might have never actually given much thought to the origins of the spirits served— granted, alcohol is usually imported—you’d never actually expect to find a distillery on home ground.
Situated among dozens of other mini factories that churn out baked goods is where Tanglin Gin—a micro-distillery—produces what can be considered Singapore’s very own homemade gin. It’s rather surprising; really, how long it took for our first distillery to appear, considering how much of Singapore’s nightlife centres around drinking?
Fans of the classic lobster roll, today is your day.
Visualise a toasted buttered brioche that is stuffed to the brim with succulent chunks of lobster meat and doused in a copious amount of mayonnaise or melted butter. Sounds incredible, doesn’t it?
While Singapore is home to a plethora of amazing food, the lobster roll scene could be better. More commonly found in our western counterparts such as New York City and London, places that serve up a solid lobster roll are hard to come by on our sunny little island.
If you are a fan of this luxurious snack (yes, snack, because nobody gets full from just one roll), you’d be glad to know that slowly but surely, there are more places in Singapore that sell lobster rolls. We’ve rounded up some of our favourites in this post.

Famous US Burger Chain FIve Guys is coming to Singapore!
NYC burger institution Shake Shack has opened in Singapore in April 2019 at Jewel Changi Airport and it seems like that isn’t the end to the slew of overseas concepts coming to our little red dot.
If burgers are your thing, then you’d be glad to know that Five Guys—another popular US burger chain with over 1,600 restaurants worldwide, spanning North America, Europe and the Middle East—is opening in Singapore by Zouk Group.
The first outlet of Five Guys Singapore will be located at Plaza Singapura on the ground level of mall near the main atrium. It is slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2019.
Not simply a “trend”, plastic-free living is becoming more popular among Singaporeans due to the heavy cost of single-use plastics on Mother Nature.
This is evident in the zero-waste stores that have been popping up on our island. These stores sell a range of products from organic dry goods sourced from overseas to Castile soaps and lifestyle products to replace single-use-plastics.
Such stores encourage customers to BYOC (bring your own containers) to bulk buy products and purchase only what is needed instead of purchasing in excess which could lead to more wastage!
Providing a simple and seamless process, visitors simply have to bring along their own containers, measure its weight beforehand, fill them up with dry goods that they require, then pay by weight. There are typically friendly and welcoming staff on hand as well to aide in the process too.
Intrigued? Head over to these 9 stores scattered around Singapore to kick start your #ZeroWaste lifestyle!
