Tenka Special Tendon - Tempura Tsukiji TenkaTenka Special Tendon Set from the newly-opened Tempura Tsukiji Tenka, one of the 16 food concepts at Japan Food Town in Wisma Atria. The limp, flaccid tempura skin involved would fail to give anyone a rise, while elsewhere the prawns had the fatigue levels of an ‘O’-Level Sec Four student in October and the clumpy rice the vacuous mushiness of said student’s pubescent and unrequited love letters. Only the various crunchy vegetables and the buttery but modest-sized cod provided respite from the signature smell of Takashimaya sewage as it carried away your $28.80 worth of dollar bills. 2.8/5

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.
