Aburi Salmon Belly Don - DSTLLRYAburi salmon belly don from DSTLLRY. Once inside the safe embrace of your mouthly cavern, the seared salmon slices seem to disintegrate into distinct layers – an external fatty and oily layer instantly disengages from the virtually liquid core of supple salmon flesh, which itself almost immediately melts on your tongue in manner of evaporation. Special mention should also be given to the wickedly fresh wasabi (up your nose, it goes) and the roasty sesame bits which make the already exciting proceedings even more glorious. A slightly dry and unevenly marinated rice results in points deducted, but at this stage its status as a flaw is akin to that of a mole on Emma Watson’s scalp. 4.5/5

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.
