Sure, it's called Celestial Avenue, but it's more of a tiny laneway, complete with graffiti and dumpsters, but it's home to a certified Chinatown institution, Supper Inn. This restaurant is all about late night dining. The old-school banquet tables are perfect for large groups, so be sure to order a range of plates to share, and don't go past the congee, the quintessential midnight snack.

LOCATION
In the CBD’s Chinatown, just off Little Bourke Street.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Late night dining doesn’t get much more indulgent than this unabashedly old-school Chinese eatery that offers creamy congee, springy noodles, delicate dumplings and other Cantonese staples to a mixed bag of diners. The eager crowd is undeterred by Supper Inn’s nondescript entrance down a back alley in Chinatown - mainly recognisable by the constant line of people cuing down the staircase at all hours. It’s a favourite haunt for exorbitant post-party feasts and late-night rendezvous of the hospitality industry, with gleeful gatherings hosted there in between.

Inside, the décor hasn’t changed for more than 20 years and service is brusque but few notice when they are happily slurping a bowlful of this restaurant’s excellent congee. For an authentic experience enjoy it with youtiao (Chinese bread strips). Meats are roasted to glistening goodness with crispy skin encasing succulent flesh of the quail, pigeon and suckling pig.

Firmly entrenched in the hearts of late night diners, booking are recommended to avoid a long wait on the stairs, but then again, the anticipation makes the food taste even better!
