DIY Kaisendon with additional mentaiko and salmon roe from Teppei Syokudo at Ion Orchard. Essentially your usual reliable Teppei Syokudo experience, with one major distinction – the sashimi here is softer, more thoughtfully cubed and sized (in contrast to the mouth-busting outrageousness you occasionally get at other outlets which requires the expertise of a fault geologist/planar fracture enthusiast to gnaw through) and suitably more restrained in salt factor. The fact that here you have the liberty to pick and choose your sashimi cuts as well as add items like a rich and deranged greedy squirrel makes this concept a winner. 4.1/5

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.
