Passioné – passionfruit and a blend of cheeses on a sponge and coconut sable base, served with cocoa nibs. The cake was smooth and rich, with no bitchy upstaging drama going on – the passionfruit dominates for the first few seconds in your mouth but eventually cedes to the cheese at the end. We were told to try the cake by itself and separately with the cocoa nibs for contrast, and I quite enjoyed the cocoa nibs, which tasted sticky and slightly burnt. Quite a triumph. 4.3/5

Shawn began documenting his food experiences since he started reading Law at the National University of Singapore. Initially he turned to food for solace from the rigours of university life, and food eventually became his safe haven away from the horrors of legal practice. However, it dawned on him one day that he has become sufficiently enlightened about the magic of discovering new and good food. Thus, he joined Burpple, a company with which his goals coincided - to help people decide what to eat. Secret Life of Fatbacks is an extension of Shawn's Instagram account (@Larvitar). For intellectual property reasons, he is unable to name the website anything related to the titular Pokémon character. Feel free to ask him in person what "Fatbacks" refers to. Shawn is not a professional food critic, food blogger or food photographer. He is simply a guy who loves food very much and (likes to think that he has) a quirky sense of humor. He enjoys combining them in his writing, and hopes to put a smile on some faces along the way.
