All the burger fans in Seminyak must be very familiar with this place. Bringing the attitude of Al Capone and the force of Kim Jong Un, Bo$$ Man is the boss of burgers. All their burgers are grilled using top quality ingredients, from juicy, tender pork cooked low and slow over 18 hours to the freshest, tastiest seasoned 160 grams beef patty. All are charged by their homemade sauces. Now, talking about the size? You won’t be disappointed. Full stop. As for the sides, you can expect truffle, porcini and parmesan fries with truffle aioli to dunk, and ridiculously ‘Loaded Fries’ with pulled pork, jalapeño, grilled homemade queso blanco, coriander and a dousing of chipotle mayo. Open until 4 AM, 7 days a week, this is a place to go to if you are looking for great quality burgers in the middle of the night. And guess what? They also do delivery service straight to your doorstep.

This restaurant is one of the local favourites for a midnight late supper. The fact that it is located only 10 minutes’ drive from the airport makes this 24-hour eatery seems like it never runs low on visitors. The night owls heading back to Jimbaran or the Nusa Dua area after partying at Seminyak’s Clubs most likely stop here to fuel themselves with porridge before going home. The décor is inspired by a simple Chinese restaurant with wooden tables and chairs next to a live-open kitchen. Warung Laota specialises in fresh seafood, but the hot seller is the authentic Hong Kong porridge from their large selection of porridge. They carefully select fresh ingredients to make the dishes more sustainable and delicious. Everything is made in-house, making sure to serve a healthy comfort food with no preservatives whatsoever. One bowl of porridge can be shared between four people.

Serving Indonesian food, this eatery used to be an iconic spot for Seminyak clubbers to ease a night of alcohol, until it relocated to the quieter area on Jalan Mertanadi. Just like their previous setup, you will find the same old-fashioned décor and furniture, creating a homey and down to earth vibe. Their Oxtail Soup is legendary, and cooked almost 6 hours every day! The soup is rich and full of flavour, while the meat on the oxtail is tender and literally falling off the bone – definitely a great hangover cure. The prices are very local, under 40k for a full set dinner. Still running 24 hours service, Baku Dapa is an alternative for excellent Indonesian food round the clock.
