We’ve all been there. It’s late, the clock’s ticking, and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t sleep. Or maybe it’s another night of burning the midnight oil, latent stress of deadlines impeding your rest. Or perhaps you’re just a night owl, preferring to expand your energy when the moon is high in the sky. Whatever the reason, past a certain hour, after the remnants of your dinner has long evaporated, hunger pangs start once more, rendering ineffective whatever it is you’re trying to accomplish.
The next time this happens, instead of subsisting on yet another packet of chips, grab your keys and wallet, and head down to one of these Muslim-friendly late-night establishments. Better yet, call a few of your fellow insomniacs for a late-night food hunting session – after all, food always tastes better when enjoyed with others right?
Featuring everything from dim sum to full-fledged zi char restaurants – yes, there is more to Muslim-friendly late-night snacking in Singapore than your usual prata options – here is a list of 15 places that offer midnight makan menus suitable for our Muslim friends. Because when living in a food haven like Singapore, you should never have to go hungry regardless of the hour!
Red Holic is where lovers of Korean food can settle in for some of the tastiest tteokbokki around. Helmed by the same folks behind Super Star K, this cosy joint boasts a myriad of home-style Korean stews, dumplings and other tasty delights that go well with beer or soju.
Red Holic specialises in comforting Korean food in the likes of classic tteokbokki, ramyeon and Korean street snacks. While their menu is pretty selective, this Korean eatery does make for a nice pit stop for a quick snack on the go or for your friends and yourself to retire to over drinks after a hard day’s work.
The whole Ramen Keisuke line has been known to wow fans with their fantastic ramen options, and we can only be even more excited upon knowing that they have launched a 10th outlet in Clarke Quay – Ramen Keisuke Lobster King.

Truth be told, we were really upset when November 8 at Upper Thomson shut its doors a few months ago. Thankfully, the same people behind November 8 has opened a brand new cafe & bar concept in the same Thomson V One Building and it is called Five by Five (5 x 5).
The 2-week old casual establishment is decked in an all-white interior with minimalistic wooden furnishings. Five by Five is one of the rare few cafes in Singapore that opens till midnight daily (except for Tuesdays).
