If you're a college student, your eating and sleeping schedules are probably not that normal. We all find ourselves hungry late at night, especially if you've been up studying till 4 am or are going out with friends at night. Next time you need a late-night meal, ditch McDonald's and check out these delicious local restaurants in Philadelphia that are open late night.

David's Mai Lai Wah

This Chinatown establishment is quite possibly the king of late night food in Philadelphia. It's not a luxury experience or gourmet food by any means, but this no-nonsense, affordable menu is great for late night eats after a night out. Salt and pepper wings, fried dumplings, and fried rice are some favorites.

Open till 3 am on weekdays and 4 am on weekends
