Sometimes, your stomach growls for fulfillment at the most inopportune of time – when the rest of the world goes to sleep. As Malaysians, “jom mamak” is oh so often heard for supper-eaters. As much as the thought of mamak makes my mouth water even as this is written, some of us just need a change in pace occasionally, you know? Whether you’re a mamak-lover or dessert connoisseur, this list will provide you with 10 Spots To Sate Your Stomach Past Midnight Near Damansara.

1. Brader John
We’ve featured Brader John on our Facebook post before. They don’t simply slap on some bread, tomatoes, and patties onto a plate, even if that’s the most time-efficient way to serve the large crowds that start to form even before opening hours. In fact, when you sink your teeth into their burgers, you’ll start singing high praises along with the choir of angels in your head. Do remember to wash your hands before you eat – even the most sophisticated of burger-lovers will lap the special sauce right off their palms!

Hayaki has been mentioned before in one of our previous posts. Personally, we feel it’s one of the more underrated places in Damansara. Hayaki has promotions rather often, which has lured us to try more and more of their food, and we have to say that their Nasi Kerabu (amongst many other things) is one of the best we’ve ever eaten. Even without promotions and deals, the prices of food here are still affordable. The staff here are friendly, quick at their job, and keep the place rather clean. Hayaki has both a smoke-free and air-conditioned seating area, as well as an open-air outdoor seating. A rather enjoyable meal for anytime of the day!
