Salmon Red Rice and Baby Octopus Donburi - Wild RocketSalmon red rice and baby octopus donburi from Wild Rocket. Essentially an immensely gratifying bowl of umami wonder – the warm, pork floss-esque, prawny, salty and surprisingly sweet rice is marvellous mouth fodder in its own right, but then the slithery, soft seared salmon comes and delivers a killer tail flop, and the omega-3 oily goodness will linger on your lips for days. 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.
