Tired of your usual supper places? Take your Eclipse Cross to these late-night spots to satiate your cravings.
1. SOON LI YONG TAU FOO
No stranger to those who love their suppers, Soon Li Yong Tau Foo is so popular that it can afford to open for just a brief period in the small hours of the morning. Officially, the stall operates between 10pm and 2.30am, but be prepared for it to change, as it can sometimes open only at 12am, or not at all. Its offerings are certainly worth the midnight drive. There is an uncommonly wide selection of ingredients for you to choose from, but you’ll want to pick the ever-popular pork belly, or the cuttlefish or squid, which go well with the ikan bilis-based soup.
: 115 Bukit Merah View, #01-78 Bukit Merah View Food Centre and Market
: In front of the food centre
: 10pm to 2.30am, but hours may vary. Closed on Mondays.
2. BAI LI XIANG ECONOMIC BEE HOON
Known affectionately among west-siders as Ah Lian Bee Hoon, this stall serves up fried comfort food like no other. A must-try, of course, is its bee hoon, but if that’s not your thing, you can ask for kway teow or Maggi noodles. You’ll also be able to choose from a variety of sides, including fried chicken wings, sausages, spam and fish cakes, to complement the noodles. A heads-up for first-timers: Be prepared to wait in a long line, which can start as early as 10pm.
: 651 Jurong West Street 63, 179 Kopitiam
: 653B HDB Jurong West car park
: 10pm to 5.30am
3. CHAN BBQ SAMBAL STINGRAY
The secret to Chan BBQ’s excellent stingrays is apparently its sambal chilli sauce. Nutty and sweet yet intensely fiery, it perfectly complements the fresh and thickly cut stingray, which is just nicely charred enough for the meat within to be juicy and flavourful. It is no wonder this stall is quite the institution among those living in the east.
: 85 Bedok North Street 4, #01-24 Fengshan Market and Food Centre
: 116A HDB Carpark
: 5pm to 1am
4. G7 SIN MA CLAYPOT LIVE FROG
Cheong Chin Nam Road famously comes alive in the evenings as the food outlets that line the stretch of road open their doors to diners from the neighbourhood and its surrounds. So it’s no mean feat that G7 Sin Ma Claypot Live Frog is always filled with patrons. The star of the menu is clearly its frog leg, which is tender and succulent and goes well whether ordered with dry chilli or ginger spring onion sauce. The porridge also has a nice consistency – smooth and thick with just the right amount of starchy.
: 5 Cheong Chin Nam Road
: Jalan Seh Chuan Car Park across the road
: 12pm to 3am
5. D’RUBINAH RESTAURANT THAI MUSLIM & SEAFOOD
For many, supper is not supper without roti prata. D’Rubinah Restaurant’s take on this local favourite is fluffy, light and full of flavour, while its curry packs a punch with just the right amount of spice. Another must-try is its chicken tikka, which is lightly spiced and goes perfectly with its mint chutney and some of its buttery naan.
: 592-593 Sembawang Road
: Parking spots are available on the road in front of the stall
: 24 hours
6. TANG TEA HOUSE
For some truly unique bee hoon, Tang Tea House’s pan-fried rendition is one you won’t want to miss. The restaurant’s take on this Singaporean dish is light and crispy, with the noodles gently fried together such that they come together to form a noodle pancake of sorts. Also, don’t miss the dim sum here – its molten salted egg custard buns are tart and piquant, while the carrot cake is dense and savoury without being too starchy.
: 242 Jalan Kayu
: Parking spots are available on the road in front of the restaurant
: 11am to 3am
Take the stress out of driving at night with the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. With cameras mounted on the front, rear and sides of the car, you can get a full, 360-degree view of the area around you, including from above, revealing blind spots and helping you park safely. Meanwhile, tubular LED brake lights and central LED high-mount stop light give the vehicle a distinctive appearance from the rear, which is beneficial in night driving. Its Automatic High Beam feature switches high beams automatically to low beams when vehicles ahead are detected, so you won’t have to take your hands off the steering wheel to do it manually. With enhanced safety and handling features, you can hop from supper spot to supper spot with full comfort and peace of mind.
