Baked Mangalitsa Kimchi Rice - Joo BarBaked Mangalitsa Kimchi Rice from Joo Bar – grilled Mangalitsa belly, chopped house-made kimchi, onion, mozzarella, pecorino, parmesan, bechamel sauce. It smothers you, douses you and beats you over the head with the fragrance-inclined tail of its cheesetastic agenda, but fan or not of cheese, it’s unequivocally the best pick from the lunch menu – the sweet and spicy kimchi aspect is pretty legit with the cabbage bits providing a toothy crunch factor, and the Mangalitsa belly, despite staying relatively grey in the sea of red, always remains on the right side of fatty bom bom. 3.8/5

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.
