10 Best Late-Night Restaurants in Vancouver To Satisfy Your Middle of the Night Cravings

Last updated:

It’s the middle of the night, and you’re hungry. Where do you go?

24 hour food in Vancouver can be found at many venues, but if you’re sick of McDonald’s, you do have other – more delicious – options (we still love you Ronald). If you often look for late night food near you, save this list to make it easier to find your next midnight meal. 

Here are 10 late-night Vancouver restaurants that will satisfy your cravings, no matter what time of day your need for pho, fried chicken, or breakfast hits you.

1.) Zabu Chicken 🍗

#bestinvancouver

If you’re looking to fulfill your Korean Drama fantasies and celebrate a good week with Korean Fried Chicken like main protagonist, Zabu Chicken is your spot. The dimly lit spot with blaring Kpop music will add to that experience. This place is also conveniently open until midnight every day.

Try Zabu Chicken’s signature yang nyum fried chicken (sweet fried chicken), half soy and half spicy original fried chicken, ra-bokki (ramen noodles in hot sauce, rice cakes, and egg), and one of the soju cocktails.

Location: 1635 Robson St, Vancouver, BC V6G 1C8

2.) Pho Extreme Xe Lua 🍲

Vietnamese and Cambodian restaurants are plentiful in the city, but Pho Extreme Xe Lua is a great place to satisfy your pho cravings when you’re looking for late-night food in Vancouver. Not only is it conveniently located across from Broadway City Hall Skytrain Station, it is also open 24 hours for those late-night warriors.

If you’re bringing along your study buddies, make sure you order a plate of spring rolls all to yourself; if you get a plate to share, you may end up fighting over who gets to eat the last one.

Note: it is cash-only

3. No.9 Restaurant

No.9 is sorta legendary. Legendary for being the go-to spot for post-clubbing/raves/karaoke and late-night catch-ups. Not only is it open 24 hours, but its massive menu is quite affordable for the portions.

This often-packed restaurant offers Asian comfort food such as pork ball congee, hot pot, wonton noodles, and yin yang prawns, as well as a selection of Western food like burgers and mac and cheese.

No.9 is open 365 days a year, so any time you are hungry, any time of day, you can find your next meal at this restaurant.

Even their website boasts about the 3000 parking spots it has…

    #bestinvancouver

    Coffee and donuts are a classic combination that can help you power through whatever project is keeping you up at this ungodly hour. A dozen donuts will cost you like $11 and there are more than 35 flavors to choose from, making this a great spot for a group to grab a snack late at night.

    Craving salty or savory instead of sweet? Not a problem. Duffin’s also has a large selection of hot tortas (subs), Chinese food, one of the better fried chicken in the city, and all-day breakfast.

    8. Congee Noodle House

    When you’re on the hunt for Chinese food late at night and you can’t get your butt to Richmond for Number 9, you have to head to Congee Noodle House.

    The food is reasonably priced and you can’t complain when you can have 24 hour congee. It just warms your soul 10x more after a wild night. You can’t go wrong with the wonton noodle, crispy seafood chow mein, minced pork congee with preserved egg, and Chinese donuts.

    Pizza, pho, and craft beer might hit the Mount Pleasant spot if you’re up late and searching for food and your group can’t decide what to eat.

    If you’re a fan of local crafted beer from the likes of Steel & Oak, 33 Acres, Strange Fellows, and more…you’ll be happy with Sing Sing’s drink menu. Expect a wide range of options from Premium ales & bitters, Lagers & Pilsners, Pale Ales, Sours to Ciders.

    And in hipster-y fashion, Sing Sing has that upbeat yet chill ambiance in a form of a modern cafeteria with their giant long tables.
