Chocolate Hazelnut Shibuya Toast - Archipelago CreameryChocolate hazelnut Shibuya toast with Tali Bourbon and Shangri Latte ice cream from Archipelago Creamery. Whilst the fortress walls may prove unsurmountable unless the dining party consists of eight pre-breakfast Primary Two boys before Sports Day at MacRitchie Reservoir Park, what lies beyond is surprisingly good and luxuriously indulgent – soft and buttery bread cubes, crunchy granola, actual hazelnuts, juicy strawberries and mutantly huge blueberries with hazelnut sauce and an accompanying and rather expensive-tasting honey.

Sure, the ice cream may lose their pizzazz amidst all the Shibuya festivities – although the Shangri Latte (lol) holds up wonderfully well with its fragrant bitterness – but the ice cream part of things was always destined to be a supporting act and bread wall lubricant when the leads are so marvelous. 4/5

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.
