North York is home to an amazing food scene, especially when it comes to East Asian food. And there’s nothing better after a long day or a night out than to sit down and enjoy a warm meal. Whether it’s 10 p.m. or 2 a.m., here are five spots in North York guaranteed to satisfy your late-night cravings.
Chicken in the Kitchen
If you’re a fan of Korean fried chicken, this is the place for you. Chicken in the Kitchen serves saucy, crispy fried chicken, but also snacks like Kimchi Bulgogi Poutine, as well as $3 shots every Friday and Saturday. The interior is cozy and the televisions make it a great place to watch the game. Don’t know what to order? Give their Garlic Chip Chicken a try—you won’t be disappointed.

Petit Potato is a Taiwanese-Japanese fusion spot that boasts an extensive menu of delicious eats and pretty drinks. If you make the visit, be sure to save room for dessert!

Magic Noodle is known for their hand-pulled noodles and prompt service. Open 24 hours, their North York location is perfect for a hearty meal to end a night out. I’d recommend the Magic Beef Noodle Soup or any of the BBQ items (the Tofu Manchu is a personal favourite) for a sizzling snack.
