Cheap Late Night Eats Near the Singapore Grand Prix
If you’re reading this, you’re probably heading to the Singapore Grand Prix. I’m looking forward to it as well!
For visitors, there is no lack of options around the city for breakfast and lunch, and the race organisers bring a good variety of street food vendors and celebrity restaurants to the Marina Bay street circuit grounds. However, the race and practice sessions end well after most of the food outlets and restaurants downtown close for the day. If you spend the rest of the evening partying or autograph hunting, even the food stalls around the circuit will be closed by the time you’re done. Operating on European time has its downsides.
I’ve put together a handy guide to 5 places near the circuit that operate well into the small hours. While none of them would feature on a racing driver’s diet list, the selection should please most fans no matter where they hail from. Best of all, a single dish from these places rarely exceeds S$20. You can walk or use Grab to get a ride and satisfy those hunger pangs.
