Molten Wings - The RawR KitchenMolten Wings (3pcs) from the newly-opened The Rawr Kitchen, situated deep in the industrial boondocks within The Splendour at Bukit Batok Crescent. Their Facebook page and the menu itself cautions and disclaims the imminent danger involved in taking on these fiery muthas, and after just two bites I can assure you they weren’t gimmicking and fannying around – this is a real holy nightmare.
At first blush, the chili that coats the wings is essentially rojak’s nuttiness meets smoky char kway teow chilli dialled up to eleven. Then, seconds after just one bite of skinned flesh, my hairs started to stand on end, drops of sweat immediately formed on my temples and it felt like Vulcan was trampling on my throbbing tongue with spiky-soled boots and stabbing it with a red-hot pitchfork. Their award-winning wheat beer – the place is a cosy microbrewery-kitchen concept – provides mere seconds of relief, but once the liquid leaves your tongue the chilli returns for more relentless rampaging.
Would I recommend the Molten Wings? As a daredevil challenge or man-drinking forfeit, this is unequivocally the spiciest thing I have put into my mouth in recent years. (The other thing I can remember driving me this crazy was something young ginger from ThaiExpress.) Whether I have the lips – you go from thin-lipped to Shu Qi by the end of the exercise – or stomach to conquer all three wings on my own is another matter. 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, and that it was time to share his findings with others. Instead of aligning himself with the vast sea of vanilla foodie influencer-style of writing, which would admittedly open more doors in terms of free meals and public relations love, Shawn decided to approach food writing by way of satirical humour, turning the don't-ya-wanna-eat-what-I'm-eating-cuz-I'm-a-public-figure self-importance/self-indulgent gravitas of Instagram foodie-ism in Singapore on its head and conveying his thoughts about food in a manner which is decidedly obscure at times and on others, frankly nonsensical. The rigours of legal practice and desire for a form of indulgent escape led to Shawn's second passion - experiencing and writing about new and luxury hotel properties. 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 critic, blogger or photographer. He is simply a guy who loves food and luxury hotels very much and (likes to think that he has) a quirky sense of humor. Shawn is presently a full-time lawyer, and when he is not premature ageing due to stress and vicious deadlines, he is somewhere spending an exorbitant amount of money trying out new dining places and hotels.
