Confit Duck Leg with Waffles - Cheek by JowlConfit duck leg with five spice caramel, cucumber and waffles from Cheek by Jowl. The decidedly Body Combat-esque and delectably charred duck leg shredded with a most effortless poise, the vivacious and refreshing greens tarted things up Vietnamese-style and the earnestly understated, crispy and buttery waffles launched a warning salvo that will likely leave pretenders and wannabes with their legs in the air like it’s a Baygon advert – but the revelation here is the five spice caramel, so deliriously exhilarating it spins you right around like a spicy, Chinese, Yomeishu-herbal and honey-sweet record. 4.4/5

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.
