The UTW (“Under Ten Words”): Nautical-themed, neighbourhood-style dining space with something for everyone.

The must-orders (if any): Smokin’ Sambal Pasta, Jasmine Peach Panna Cotta

Summary: From the folks behind the EagleWings (a yacht charter), Eaglewings Loft is a blue nautical-themed, neighbourhood-style all-day dining space with a very, very extensive menu – Coffee! Breakfast! Appetisers! Western! Southeast Asian delights! High tea! Pasta! Pizzas! Desserts! Alcohol, cocktails and mocktails! – that would satisfy most conceivable types of guests, from Sixth Avenue families to Chinese High boys alike.

The generously oiled pastas (e.g. Signature Aglio Olio, Smokin’ Sambal) show promise – the enjoyment quotient would exponentially jump if the seafood selection were less NTUC and more Jason’s The Gourmet Grocer – whilst elsewhere, the Jasmine Panna Cotta felt curiously out of place, a simple yet classy and stupendously refreshing creation that could easily slot into a posh fine dining meal. I drink like a sailor and am fairly desensitised to the charms of Hello Kitty cocktails, but the basic yet generously vodka-ed and very pretty Mint Frohito was strangely satisfying. If I still donned my triangle badge and green shorts, this would be a drink that would give me illicit drunken life.

Eaglewings Loft may exactly not be destination dining, Instagram-friendly or in any way trendy or hip, but for all its family-style, humble and charmingly old-fashioned stylings, it was a happy dinner experience. I would be back to explore all the yet-to-be-unlocked items in the extensive menu, if only out of curiosity.

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.
