Where to go and feed yourself for supper or in the wee hours in the morning, when most restaurants and bars in Singapore are already sleeping

Well here you go, the ultimate list of late-night joints to hit up for supper in Singapore. Pssst… we covered all the corners of the island!
It’s only right to have supper at this cloak-and-dagger burger place in Amoy Street. Delicious and greasy is how a great late-night burger should be and they absolutely nailed it.
