BJORN SHEN

ART ICHOKE

SALT Magazine - - Feature -

Bjorn Shen needs lit­tle in­tro­duc­tion. The king of dud­e­stron­omy has

been run­ning Mid­dle East­ern restau­rant Ar­ti­choke since 2010,

and is also the man be­hind the shame­lessly-named cream­si­cle line Neh Neh Pop, and the now-de­funct

luxe fried chicken con­cept Bird Bird. His lat­est project is taking on the role of a judge in the very first

MASTERCHEF Sin­ga­pore.

THE INK: a man shout­ing out and break­ing free from chains, a tribal

de­sign, and a chicken wing.

“In ret­ro­spect, the shout­ing one was got­ten in anger, and the tribal

one in a time of hap­pi­ness. Also be­cause I wanted to get one that looks like what [ex-WWE wrestler] The Rock has on his body. [Pauses to think about what he just said]

My ad­vice for chefs out there? Don’t get a tat­too if you have a

s**t body like mine.”
