Although there’s always the choice of fast-food, drive thrus and convenience store siopaos, there’s still nothing like a good sit-down meal. So, if you find yourself awake and hungry for something better than a value meal, here are late night restaurants to satisfy your cravings after midnight:
Face it, the craving for sushi never ends. Thankfully, the iconic Japanese joint stays open past midnight so we don’t have to settle for convenience-store grade food.
Maybe it’s just in our heads but their famous Spicy Toro Maki tastes even better late at night.
There’s just something so homey about the Old Swiss Inn. Not many people know this, but the old-time family favorite is actually open 24/7. So, if you’re craving for some of their classic cheese fondue or fresh corned beef, you don’t have to wait for another special occasion to get a taste.
Ever since its opening, Recovery Food has been the top of mind choice for party-goers trying to sober up. Their signature meals like the Tapa de Morning and the SST (spicy sweet tuyo) are believed to cure even the worst hangovers.
But sober or not, there’s no denying that a trip to RF before bed comes with a guarantee of a good night’s sleep.
Uptown Mall’s Tim Ho Wan is the chain’s only branch that will serve you your favorite pork buns until three in the morning. As a bonus, the branch offers a supper menu for odd-hour cravings which is available to diners from 10:00pm onwards.
Nothing hits the spot better than a giant burger and fries, and Arm Navy is just the place for that. The well-loved Tex-Mex restaurant has branches open 24/7 all over the metro where you can score some crispy Freedom Fries that go well with any of their dishes.
Señor Pollo can work as either your pre-game spot before clubbing, your post-party hangout, or both. For maximum satisfaction, make sure to order their famous Latin-style chicken paired with some chimichurri and spicy rice before going to bed.
JT’s Manukan has constantly topped the list of the best Bacolod-style Chicken Inasal in Manila. And if something’s that delicious, you’ll have people craving for it up until the wee hours of the morning. Luckily, some of JT’s branches are open late at night.
Who says breakfast was only meant for the mornings? For those who always miss out on a fast-food chain’s breakfast menu – you no longer have to worry. Kanto Freestyle Breakfast serves your early morning favorites all day long. From trusty silogs to fancy eggs Benedict and poached egg, the 24/7 eatery has you covered.
Sometimes, dessert has the power to make everything better, and that includes a late night. After a couple of drinks, and just before the restaurant shuts at 1am, it’s always a good idea to end the night out with Refinery’s banana turnover.
If you’re looking to end the night with a sweet taste in your mouth then Farmacy should be your last stop. Fill your belly with a scoop or two of ice cream or one of their “very thick shakes”, and you’re bound to have a good sleep.
