When it comes to satisfying our late-night hunger pangs, supper spots that come to mind are usually located in the East, West or Central parts of Singapore. The North, not so much.

This doesn't mean there is a lack of late-night spots up in the North though. We've looked and found a number of scrumptious supper places that you can consider the next time you're in the area during the wee hours of the morning. Think hotpot, dim sum and mookata spots that are open till as late as 6.30am.

Similar to the previous supper lists that we have for the East, West and Central areas of Singapore, we will be leaving out frequently visited and popular establishments such as McDonalds, Hai Di Lao and Al-ameen.

BKK Bistro & Bar

For 80 cent boat noodles like those you'll find in Thailand, check out BKK Bistro & Bar. As It's located at ORTO, a 24-hour multi-recreational park, it's the perfect place to fill your tummy after a spot of late-night prawning.

Diners can customise their boat noodles, choosing their preferred noodles, soup base and toppings. If you don't fancy eating multiple small servings, opt for the medium or super-sized bowl.

Besides boat noodles, there are also other Thai dishes on the menu, including Pineapple Fried Rice Topped with Chicken Floss, Glass Noodle Seafood Salad and Traditional Thai Mango Sticky Rice.

Burger Geprek

For a range of hearty options such as Lamb Chop, Sirloin Steak and Martabak Indomie Geprek, head to the recently opened Burger Geprek at Woodlands North Plaza.

Spicy food lovers should try to test their spice tolerance by getting the stall's signature menu item, Burger Geprek. It's a burger that is packed with geprek, an Indonesian spicy chili paste that is known to pack a fiery, mean punch.

Chong Pang Nasi Lemak

Few people living in the North won't know about Chong Pang Nasi Lemak since it's one of the more popular nasi lemak spots in Singapore and they're open till late at night. The eatery is known for their cai fan-style service, allowing diners to pick and choose what ingredients they want.

Unlike other places that only offer standard options such as fried chicken, fried fish and otah, Chong Pang Nasi Lemak has a myriad of other offerings like sotong, spicy eggplant and sweet and sour pork. Don't forget to ask for a dollop of Chong Pang's homemade sweet chilli to complete your dish.

If you're hankering for seafood late at night, Hai Zhong Bao Seafood might be just the place to satisfy your cravings.

Nothing screams supper food like mookata, and it's available up North too. Enjoy marinated meats and flavourful food at Mookata Traditional Thai BBQ, which like BKK Bistro & Bar, is located in ORTO.

While there are a la carte options and set menus, those who have a big appetite should opt for their dinner buffet menu for an unlimited amount of their signature meats, including Pork Collar, Chicken Thigh and Pork Belly.
