Food is the likely assumption here. IMHO, the focus of this sentence is on when they are eating, not what they're eating.

Is it common to have a meal that late in Norway? I am American and some people here eat dinner as early as 5 or 6 PM (17:00 - 18:00). When living in Spain they ate dinner around 9 to 10 PM (21:00 - 22:00).

It's not uncommon in big cities in America for late-night food places to be open 'till 4:00am. Also think of how open 24/7 chains exist.

The use of commas is much needed in this sentence, aha.

Why doesn't "We eat something..." correct? Why is noen only translated to some?
