By Ruth Loh Xiu / EdgeProp Singapore | May 13, 2019 1:25 PM SGT
The word “supper” conjures up visions of snacking—or even feasting—into the wee hours. Given the number of late-night joints dotted across our tiny island, it’s safe to say Singaporeans generally love supper, whether they enjoy it regularly or as an occasional treat. Certain locales feature more than their fair share of supper spots, and Holland Village in District 10 is one of them.
If you love supper, you’re in for a treat—we’re bringing you five different late-dining establishments to fit most budgets. Supper fiends will be thrilled to know they’re all within the Holland Village shops enclave, because that means one thing: A superbly affordable supper crawl is now within easy walking distance.

1. Holland Village food centre coffee shop (for local food lovers)

This coffee shop has four food stalls and one for drinks. You can find Thai food—including Thai wanton mee, Chinese zi char, and Indian cuisine served up with a nice round of ice-cold beers.

The food here is more expensive than food at a typical hawker centre, but cheaper than a café. An egg hor fun from zi char stall Golden Wok @ HV costs $7, and a sambal fried rice $6. Nearby, Soi Thai serves up wanton mee for $5.50 a bowl. Although the portions aren’t very big, the dish comes with lots of deep-fried pork lard and yummy char siew. Apart from noodles, Soi Thai also sells a number of side dishes, including fish sausages, fried pork, and spam fries – which doesn’t seem very Thai, to be honest, but that’s globalisation for you.
There are also Golden Wok and Love Thai, which are run by the same management and may not be always open on the same night. You can get Love Thai’s red ruby for $4.50 and mango sticky rice for $6. Golden Wok has just hired a new chef, so the menu is expected to be changed too, presumably to showcase the new chef’s culinary strengths.
At the snazzily named Sizzle Your Way to Pepper Castle, take your pick from a variety of dishes, from traditional Indian food including paneer, aloo ghobi, and chicken tikki masala, to tandoor meats like fish, prawn, chicken and mutton.

One last thing: You’ll see a big sign boldly announcing closing time is 2am, but this applies to the drinks stall, and apparently only on weekends.

Where: 33 Lorong Liput, Singapore 277744 (look for a huge PETS LOVERS CENTRE sign above the coffee shop).
Closing time: The stalls are open till 11.30pm to 12.30am on weeknights and up to 1.30am or 2am on weekends. Soi Thai’s sign says it’s closed on Mondays.

2. Char Grill Bar Holland Village (for grilled meat lovers)

Char Grill Bar Holland Village’s late-night crowd is as vibrant as Raffles Place’s lunchtime one. It’s thrumming with life and neon signs advertising well-known beer brands, and the colourful menu outside its door tempts with drool-worthy food pictures. Burgers, baked rice dishes (costing less than $10), and lots of grilled meats are the order of the day here. There’s also fried rice with unspecified but likely grilled—meats, and salads for those looking for healthy food. Salads are less than $10, in intriguing combinations of deep-fried chicken and fresh summer greens or smoked duck and veggies neatly straddling the divide between the healthy and the…could-be-healthier. They’re perfect for those who want to make cleaner choices without sacrificing taste and variety. The Giant Italian Pork Sausage Set looks interesting, and it comes in two animal varieties—pig and chicken.

Housed in a two-storey corner shop, this restaurant deals in Japanese dishes. Chirashi don, chirashi soba, and lots of yakitori meats stand out on the menu. Select your meal from touchscreen portals reminiscent of MacDonald’s self-ordering machines and wait to be served. There are many small plates to share, from unagi to gyoza, and prices range from less than $10 to a little above $20 for a plate. Wallet-conscious students can take advantage of a 10-for-$4 sashimi special, or even a chirashi soba meal assembled with three types of sashimi, thick tamago wedges, and made complete with iced lemon tea plus a generous portion of fried salmon skin for $9.80. Those looking to splurge a little can opt for a seafood deluxe hotpot set for two with scallops, abalone, and tiger prawns for $35.

There’s also a drinks bar on the second level, which has ambient lighting and a chill atmosphere. Those preferring privacy can ensconce themselves in a quiet corner chamber beneath a bare-shouldered and leggy kawaii cartoon smouldering at her reflection. In short: a perfect place to have supper and a real conversation without having to yell over blaring music.
Where: 48 Lorong Mambong, Singapore 277699.
Closing time: About 11pm every day (inclusive of last order).
