Kuroson Tempura Don - Ginza Kuroson (Takashimaya)Kuroson Tempura Don from Ginza Kuroson (Takashimaya) – pumpkin, seaweed, shiso leaf, mushroom, fish, calamari and prawn tempura on a bed of rice. The tempura portion was surprisingly generous and wonderfully varied in type, and the batter always remained on the right side of fried. 4/5

P.S. I don’t normally rave about a venue within a dish review but damn, this place is wonderful. Apart from the nicely priced lunch donburi sets available every day, there was a separate teppanyaki room, a massive bar counter with fresh fish displayed for your picking in manner of a fish market, and nice and cosy VIP rooms with sliding doors for your use (only in some circumstances would a minimum spending be required, otherwise it is totally free like a Eurasian Tree Sparrow in the Botanic Gardens sky). I felt so pampered and fancy getting a VIP room for my meal with friends on a Sunday afternoon…without having to spend a lot!

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.
