by Christabel Tan

Want go JB for supper?” 

Ah, music to my ears. 

Yes, heading into Johor Bahru to indulge in late-night grub is truly one of Singaporeans’ favourite pastimes — don’t we all have friends who make crossing the causeway for supper (followed by a massage or KTV session) a weekly affair? 

If this is you, we’ve compiled a list of the best supper spots in JB that open past midnight, including several 24/7 options (of course) for those who want to munch all night long. 

1. Restoran HW Wanton Mee

Look no further than Restoran HW Wanton Mee if it’s good ol’ wanton mee you’re craving. 

Each plate of noodles (from RM8.60), which can be prepared with either White or Black Sauce (it seems as though everyone prefers the latter) is served with thinly sliced char siew, wanton skin, bok choy, a bowl of soup dumplings, and if you like, crispy pork lard. 

Add on a side of crispy fried wantons and you’re all set for the evening. The eatery is also conveniently (strategically?) located besides the popular Bangkok Spa, so you can easily pop in for a massage before or after your meal. 

📍 68, Jalan Abiad, Taman Maju Jaya, 80400 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
🕒 6pm–3.30am (Tue to Sun), Closed on Mon

2. Restoran Ah Piaw

Another wanton mee spot frequented by both locals and visitors is Restoran Ah Piaw, a 24-hour eatery that’s just a short drive from the JB checkpoint. 

Aside from their Signature Wanton Mee (from S$2.40, RM8.50), which is prepared using springy duck egg noodles, they are also known for Abalone Kuey Teow Soup (S$7.06, RM25) — kway teow in a comforting pork-based broth chock full of scallops, prawns, fishballs, lean pork slices, fish maw, wantons, and mock abalone.

3. Wei Ge Lok Lok

To be fair, most lok lok eateries in JB are supper spots, but Wei Ge Lok Lok in Mount Austin is the perfect spot for when you have hunger pangs in the wee hours of the night.

They operate out of a food truck all the way till 4am, so you can spend the entire night choosing from their wide selection of meats, vegetables, and fresh seafood skewers with options like prawns, cuttlefish, and squid.

All we can say is, lok lok really hits different after a three-hour long karaoke session. 

📍 Jalan Austin Heights 8/7, Taman Mount Austin, 81100, Johor Bahru

4. Fat Fish

Fans of Chongqing-style grilled fish ought to hit up Fat Fish, a restaurant where seafood takes centre stage. 

Most tend to go for the sumptuous Seafood Pots, which come with an assortment of seafood — think crab, prawns, clams, scallops, squid, and abalone — all bubbling away in a massive pot of richly seasoned broth.

Otherwise, go for one of the Fat Fish Pots and chow down on your choice of fish, be it barramundi, orange roughy, or red snapper. Then, take your pick from the extensive variety of unique soup bases, like Sichuan Hot & Spicy, Sweet Corn, and Pepper Bone, along with your preferred add-ons. 

If you’re not up for a massive meal at midnight, a Mini Pot or two will do just the trick.

As with most reputable dim sum spots in JB, you can expect good quality ingredients and a dizzying array of dishes. Other than crowd favourites like the oozy Golden Bao (S$2.19, RM7.80) and Xiao Long Bao (S$2.19, RM7.80), you’ll never go wrong with their shrimp dim sum dishes.

Restoran Jamilah is the JB supper spot to pull up to when those roti prata (okay, roti canai — this is Malaysia) cravings arise. 

Take your pick from the typical Indian Muslim mamak staples like nasi goreng, mee goreng, sup kambing, thosai, chapati, nasi lemak, fried chicken, and nasi campur, and wash everything down with a cup of frothy teh for good measure.

If you’ve never tried Johor-style kway chap, otherwise known as kway teow kia, this is your sign to visit Restoran Hi Wan on your next late-night jaunt across the causeway.

Unlike the kway chap we have in Singapore, which is characterised by broad sheets of kway teow, the noodles here are cut into thin and long strips.

The smooth and silky kway teow is served in a herbal, lightly peppery broth, best enjoyed with side dishes like braised pork, pork belly, intestines, pig skin, and beancurd, just to name a few. 

📍 210, Jalan Sri Pelangi, Taman Pelangi, 80400 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia

8. Hoobaa Hotpot 火爆锅

We hear their Oysters (six for RM18), which can be enjoyed fresh or grilled with cheese, Thai chilli, or green pepper, are a must-order. 

End the meal on a high with Fried Ice Cream (S$1.07, RM3.80), or keep it simple with your favourite flavour of BBT
