1 GARLIC FINGERS, FREEMAN'S LITTLE NEW YORK
You're going to want to add this word to your ever-growing Haligonian vocabulary: Garlies. Dough, cheese, maybe bacon (if you're like that) and definitely donair sauce work together for this ultimate comfort, a perfect carb-load for a big night or finisher to fuel your walk home. Freeman's is the master of late-late, welcoming nighthawks until 5am every night on Quinpool and Thursday through Sunday downtown. Tip your server well, you doofus, because they've definitely seen (and cleaned) it all. 6092 Quinpool Road and 1726 Grafton Stree


2PIZZA, SICILIAN PIZZA, DONAIRS & SUB
Grab a piping hot piece of pep and cheese that's bigger than your head, make sure it gets doused in donair sauce for good measure and grab a seat in the window—or across the street on the wall in front the of the Church of St. David. It's a prime seat to watch all the Pizza Corner (yup, this corner of Blowers and Grafton is called Pizza Corner) action and re-cap the night's shenanigans. 5245 Blowers Street


3CHICKEN SHAWARMA, MEZZA LEBANESE KITCHEN
Slow spit-roasted, carved-with-care chicken, pickles and generous amounts of garlic sauce make this wrap a Halifax classic you (and your breath) won't soon forget. Hack the heck out of it by getting them to throw some fries in there too. Open till 2am or 4am Thursday through Saturday. 1558 Barrington Street


4 POUTINE WITH STUFFING, WILLY'S FRESH CUT FRIES & BURGERS
Not all poutines were created equal. And much like Montreal is the mother of all Canadian poutine, Willy's rules when it comes to Halifax's take on the dish. Top-notch hand cut fries and vegetarian gravy make the difference every day until 4am. We recommend adding on a scoop of stuffing for extra soakage and grabbing a couple of kebabs from next door (Rocky's Filipino BBQ)while you wait. 5239 Blowers Street


5PIZZA, TRIPLE A CONVENIENCE
So what if you already dummied a slice on Pizza Corner? Now that you've trudged almost all the way to your bed, you're hungry again. Lucky for you, this legendary south end corner store doubles as a pizzeria until 2am on weekends. 6279 Jubilee Road


6MOZZA STICK BURGER, XTREME PIZZA
Look away if you're lactose intolerant. This cheesy delight is one of Xtreme's many creative creations, a bacon-y beef burger topped with a couple of mozza sticks and a dollop of sour cream—a snack sure to send your soon-to-be hangover packing. Open until 3am through the week, and 4am on Fridays and Saturdays. 5970 Spring Garden Road
