Murphy's Platter - Murphy'sMurphy’s Platter (fish fingers, calamari tempura and crispy wings, with either salted egg or lemon mayo dip) from Murphy’s, a few stones’ throw away from Ang Mo Kio MRT.
The fish fingers were revelatory, with the white and tender arrowtooth flesh possessing an exuberant sweetness and a thin skin which deftly sidestepped the greasy skid-falls of the Western Stall fish. Elsewhere, the stoic calamari tempura and pedestrian crispy wings received instant rapturous relief from the Midas touch of the sweet salted egg dip, which revealed perky chunks of salted egg yolk and shocks of searing spice if you happen to skirmish with one of the random chilli padi bits lurking within. 3.7/5

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.
