PJ – best places for late night food cravings if you study in UM, BAC, SEGI or MAHSA!

Ya’all studying in Brickfields Asia College PJ, UM, SEGI or MAHSA! When was the last time you’ve actually had something else at night than just a nearby mamak menu? Here we are, coming for the rescue!

We all have those moments when you can’t sleep. Or it’s the exam season and you just have to study so much that you get food cravings at random times of the night. Or you were sleeping but suddenly woke up and realize that you need to eat nasi lemak NOW.

We’re compiled a short, yummy list of places that are open through the night – so you can satisfy your cravings for ayam goreng and mee mamak at 3 AM or whenever!

Nasi Lemak Bumbung

Absolute classic, that you’ve got to try at least once in your lifetime. Their ayam goreng is so famous that it’s been covered multiple times on blogs and websites. And even (sometimes) rude staff will not affect the popularity of it. The chicken has a spicy kick and is always juicy – and hot, because it’s prepared fresh, even at night.

Nasi lemak is a perfect side to accompany the ayam. Trust us – there’s something magical in its aroma! It’s a bit on the expensive side, but well – this place is a legend, so the prices are different than in a normal mamak.

Location: Jalan 21/11b, Sea Park, 46300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia

Hours: Mon-Thu, Sat, 5:30pm – 4:00am; Sun, 5:30pm – 12:00am; Closed on Fridays

Donutes Coffee & Bakery

Need something more sweet and creamy? Like a fluffy pastry with whipped cream? Or a piece of cake and a strong cup of coffee to get you going during the exam preparation? Donutes cafe (originally from Taiwan) is open 24 hours. Seriously. 24 hours! And they have 3 branches: in PJ, Puchong and Subang. PS. Their lava salted egg cheese tarts are to die for! Must try 🙂


  • Kota Damansara, No 1, Jalan PJU5 / 13, Petaling Jaya
  • Puchong, No 7, Jalan Kenari 6, Bandar Puchong Jaya, 47100 Petaling Jaya
  • SS15, No 1, Jalan SS15 / 4E, Subang Jaya, Selangor

Hours: Open 24 hours


The Port

Need some inspiration at night, or maybe you’re just craving some stylish interiors? Then head to the Port – the restaurant which was built using the hipster cargo containers and lots of industrial materials. It doesn’t look like your usual lepak place – that’s for sure!

Come for meat. Lamb shoulder, steak with gravy, or cheesy meetballs. But keep some space for dessert – don’t leave without checking out their pisang goreng with cheese and chocolate! So good!

Picadilly Restaurant (Millenium Square)

One thing: cheap beer towers! Second thing: HUGE menu! One of the biggest choices of food in whole Petaling Jaya. But what’s suprising, the kitchen is fast and you’ll get your food very soon (weird but true – how do they do it?). Local specialty sounds unusual, but a lot of people are in love with it: it’s fried nasi lemak. Think that normal nasi lemak is awesome? Try this one! Plus, even though the place is huge, you can usually find parking around the condo without problems. Oh, and they always show all the important football matches, in case you’re a fan. The waiters even wear the football jerseys!

Location: LG 006 & LG 007, No. 98, Millenium Square, Jalan 14/1, Seksyen 14, 46100 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia

Hours: 10:30 AM – 2 AM everyday

223, Nasi Lemak Panas

The most legendary nice spot for nasi lemak in the hood! Always hot, always yummy – and the most difficult decision of the day will be: shall you take the blue-stamped one or the red-stamped one? Different stamps mean that they actually come from different stalls – you can taste the difference in the sambal – blue one is more spicy, and red one is sweeter. The packets are small, so you need 2 minimum to feel full!

Hours: 6PM – 2 AM
