Grains & Hops – National Day Menu Available Till End August, Look Out For The Super Creative Prawn Noodle Croquette

James Chan

Grains & Hops

Located on the 10th floor of the luxury airline travel themed YOTEL Singapore, Grains & Hops has released their National Day menu and I think they pretty much hit the nail on the head with this one.

grains & hops brew

The Food

Available till 31st August 2018, Singaporeans will have a pretty long window to try some of these amazing local inspired dishes. Pair them dishes with Grains & Hops’ very own brew of craft beer – with its light fruity notes and slightly bitter aftertaste, knocking back a couple of pints will definitely be a pleasant experience.

grains & hops chilli crab

Chilli Crab Rillette, $16

Chilli Crab is definitely a no brainer when it comes to local Singaporean cuisine. They are extremely generous with the fresh and tender crab meat and I must say that they’ve got the sweet and rich Chilli Ccrab flavors down to a T. The rice cracker gives this dish a nice crispy textured bite and definitely something new to me. I’m more of a mantou (Chinese steam buns) kind of guy when it comes to Chilli Crab.

grains & hops oyster omeletteOyster Omelette Cracker, $13

The element in this dish that brings everything together is that sweet and sour chilli sauce. It tones down the strong seafood essence that comes along with oysters (especially when they’re fried). The tapioca crackers were light, crispy and extremely satisfying. This makes for a good accompaniment all types of alcohol. No I’m not an alcoholic.

grains & hops prawn noodle croquettePrawn Noodle Soup Croquette, $14

This is definitely my all-time favorite for their National Day Menu. It’s a croquette but the magic is WHAT’S IN THE CROQUETTE. You’ll find a tantalizing broth of pork bones and prawn stock just waiting to attack your taste buds as your teeth breaks into the crispy exterior of the croquette. It’s GENIUS! But do let it cool for a couple of minutes upon serving. Like a xiao long bao, it can burn you if you’re too impatient. I recommend asking your friends to test the waters first (that’s what I did). Oh and to top it all off (quite literally) there’s a pretty big and fresh prawn for each ball!

grains & hops kaya mochiKaya Cream Mochi, $12

I thought this was going to be super sweet but nope, it actually sat pretty well with my not-so-sweet palate. That chewy mochi textures go extremely well with that light kaya cream. Who would have thought?

Kinsa Sushi – A4 Wagyu Beef Rice Bowls That Even The Supreme Leader Can’t Resist

James Chan

Kinsa Sushi

In his recent visit to Singapore, Kim Jong Un’s doppelganger went to a couple of restaurants with Kinsa Sushi being one of them. So what managed to pique the “supreme leader’s” interest?

kinsa sushi kim jung un

The Food

Besides having a smart robot waiter (I named him Howard) to serve food to customers and a levitating sushi conveyor belt that utilizes magnetic tech, it all boils down to the taste of the food. Was it good?

kinsa sushi wagyu don

Signature Wagyu Don

The Japanese Meat Grading Association (yeah it’s a legit thing) gives a score to each cow that range from C1 to A5, with A5 being the best quality. Kinsa Sushi imports A4 grade Wagyu beef so you do the math at the premium quality meat that’s placed in front of you.

I believe the amount of Wagyu meat Kinsa offers on each Wagyu don is more than generous for the price and IT’S SO TENDER AND DELICIOUS! Every bite was rich in fatty, beefy flavors and so juicy!

kinsa sushi chirashi don

Kinsa Chirashi with Wagyu

When they say “WITH WAGYU” they really mean just a dollop of Wagyu sashimi so don’t raise your expectations too high. HOWEVER, the sashimi makes up for the lack of wagyu. It’s everything you expect good sashimi to be; fresh, sweet, light and easy to go down but over at Kinsa, there’s an added twist – they melt in your mouth! Foodgasm!

kinsa sushi kinsa roll

Kinsa Roll

Cucumber, Aburi Salmon, Purple Rice, Avocado and Ikura. A pretty safe yet tasty combination. Although, purple rice is definitely the healthier option so this means YOU CAN EAT MORE!

kinsa sushi kim jung un

Is the juice worth the squeeze?

I wish I had more space to try the rest of the dishes but I assure you the Chirashi don and the Wagyu don are winners. Heck, if Kim Jung Un came here to eat, doppelganger or not, it means something yeah?

Lobster Claw Meat In Every Roll, Plans To Open More Locations Island wide

James Chan

Chunky Lobsters

Look out for this new building called Oxley Tower along Robinson Road. Skidaddle over to the 2nd floor and you’ll find Chunky Lobsters. Chunky Lobsters is a small eatery but they’re HUGE in popularity with the office people over at the CBD. Expect an average waiting time of 15 to 20 minutes.

The Food

As their name suggests, Chunky Lobsters specializes in lobster rolls. The beauty of their menu is in its simplicity. You only have three different main product offerings to choose from. Also, all of their lobsters are imported all the way from Canada and flown in once a month. These lobsters are then stored in a cold room at -18 Degrees Celsius and delivered to their store 1 to 3 times a week to ensure customers have the freshest lobster experience.

Top up $0.90 cents for a drink with any purchase of their lobster rolls or add $3.90 for a drink and a bowl of lobster bisque!

Oh, and each serving comes with 3 generous rolls of sweet, juicy lobster claws. Need I say more?

Chunky’s Original, $16

For a true lobster experience at Chunky Lobsters, the Chunky’s Original is something not to be missed. The sweet lobster meat is met with a touch of mayo, lemon and something a little extra. I couldn’t really place my finger on it, but when I tried to get them to reveal the ingredients I was met with red tape.

Chunky’s Connecticut, $16

Alternatively, for the same price, you can opt for something more buttery to go with the sweetness of the lobster rolls. Slightly salty and sweet, each roll is pure joy and before you know it, it’s all gone!

Chunky’s Cheezy, $16

This is my favourite and for good reason. I mean, who doesn’t like cheese? (Unless you’re lactose intolerant, then I offer my sincere condolences) They use 4 different types of cheeses that results in a nice stretchy cheese that taste great and makes for a good insta story too!

Lobster Bisque, $3.90

It’s going to come in a small little cup so don’t look disappointed when you receive it (I might have looked a little sad). Taste wise, you have your distinct and wonderfully sweet crustacean flavors swimming around in the little bowl but it felt a tad lighter than the usual explosion of flavors I’m used to when it comes a crab or lobster bisque. Still, $3.90. I’ll drink one of those everyday if I could.

Is the juice worth the squeeze?

You’ll probably need to have your cholesterol levels checked if you eat this everyday but it’s a definite YES from me. There’s probably nowhere else in Singapore where you can find lobster rolls at such low prices.

If Robinson Road is too far for that Lobster craving, catch them at Singapore Garden Festival 2018 from 21st July to 3rd August 2018 @ Gardens By The Bay. They’re going to be one of the food vendors there and YOU CAN EXPECT A QUEUE for sure!

The Market Grill – An American Diner That Serves Amazing Wagyu Steaks And Super Fresh Lobster

James Chan

The Market Grill

The Market Grill might be familiar to many along Telok Ayer Street as they’ve been around for many years. Meaning, they’re definitely doing something right. Designed like an “All American Diner”, The Market Grill exudes a casual atmosphere that serves honest and generous portions of food.

the market grill interior

The Food

The secret behind their success? Definitely their charbroiler that utilizes charcoal to grill their meats. This gives their awesome wagyu steaks that nice smoky flavour and locks in the juiciness of the meat while possessing a well-cooked crusty exterior.

the market grill farmers hash

Farmer’s Hash, $24

Sweet Potato, Potato, Farmer’s Sausage, Caramelized Onion, Beans And Poached Egg.

The egg was beautifully cooked and after bursting that yolk, all that creamy goodness just spread out evenly throughout the dish. The portion was extremely generous but I honestly feel the price is a little steep, just a little.

 the market grill lobster benedict

Lobster Benedict, $32 / Salmon Benedict, $18

Poached Eggs, Hollandaise Sauce, Capers, Mixed Salad And House Dressing

THEY USE REAL LOBSTER MEAT! And it’s super sweet and fresh too! For $32? Now this is definitely value-for-money.

For its Salmon counterpart, they cure the salmon in house. This results in a less salty smoked salmon compared to what’s readily available in the market.

the market grill lobster roll

Lobster Roll, $52

Whole Lobster Deshelled with herbed pommery mayo mounted on a toasted brioche roll, topped with tobiko

This is definitely one of the stars of The Market Grill. They use a super fresh 500g (on average) whole lobster. The tobiko gives an added texture and there’s hints of mustard in every bite.

I’m also told that when it comes to lobster rolls, The Market Grill are the pioneers in Singapore and seeing as how long they’ve been around, I believe them.

Wagyu Tri Tip 200g / 300g , $49 / $65

Grain fed. Red Wine Jus Served With Onion Confit And Mash Potato

Their meats are all imported from Australia and definitely a MUST TRY. It’s so juicy and tender that you can even eat it without the red wine sauce! (Of course, with the red wine sauce, it just elevated the awesomeness of this dish). Like I mentioned above, the trick is their charbroil grill.

the market grill charbroil grill

Is the juice worth the squeeze?

Yes for two reasons. The lobster and the steak. They’re reasonably priced for premium ingredients (especially that live lobster) and they taste so damn good! I would come back over and over again for sure!

The Irish Hybrid Duck @ Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke Is A Definite Treat For The Stomach

James Chan

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke

Keisuke Takeda, the celebrity chef who has opened numerous Japanese eateries here in Singapore, strikes once again with Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke at Holland Village, a hybrid duck ramen store (the first of its kind).

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke kyoto stairs

It’s located on the 2nd floor and whilst climbing up the stairs, you sort of feel like you’re being transported to the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto with numerous red vertical pillars guiding your accent.

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke free beansprouts and eggs

The Food

Free beansprouts and hard boil eggs? Are they appealing to the Kiasu Singaporean in me? If so, it worked. I only had a little bit though.

There are six ramen offerings: Rich Duck Broth, Clear Duck Broth, Miso Duck Broth, Spicy Miso Duck Broth, Tsukemen (Dipping Noodles) and Maze Soba (Dry Ramen). If you’re more a rice person, there are several Duck Donburi options to choose from too.

We ordered a Clear Duck Broth Ramen, a Spicy Miso Duck Broth Ramen and a Kamo Wasabi Gohan (Marinated Wasabi Duck Rice). One thing is clear throughout all three dishes: The DUCK is Ducking Good! It’s tender, fatty and perhaps just a wee bit gamey but that’s okay! Suddenly all the duck rice stores in Singapore pale in comparison after eating this Irish Hybrid Duck.

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke spicy miso duck ramen special

(Spicy Miso) Hybrid Duck Ramen Special, $21.50

Comes with a flavored egg, meatballs and a large piece of seaweed. I’ll be completely honest. I did not like the ramen at all. The broth was too rich and thick to the point that I could not finish my meal (not to mention being extremely salty) I found myself picking the duck meat slices and ensuring I ate every piece though.

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke clear broth duck ramen special

(Clear Broth) Hybrid Duck Ramen Special, $19.50

Likewise for this, even though it was a clear broth, it was hard to go down. Quite the disappointment.

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke kamo wasabi gohan

Kamo Wasabi Gohan, $8.90

Now this was the saving grace of the day. It may be a small bowl but there’s generous portions of that amazing duck so that you’ll always get some duck with every spoonful of rice. Also, who knew wasabi and duck could go so well together? Keisuke Takeda did. Hats off to you sir!

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke worth it?

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

The ramen. No. The rice? Definitely. They should have a duck only option. Probably a super sinful meal offering but SO WORTH IT! Oh but the rice bowls are really small so perhaps you might want to try their Kamo Ju ($29.90), basically a duck bento. I’m going to try it on my next visit.

The Wine Buffet At Winederlust Is Something You Have To Try

James Chan

Winederlust

Winederlust is a new wine bistro located at Wanderlust, a beautiful boutique hotel along Dickson Road. Housing over 300 different brands of wine from all over the world, the inner alcoholic in you will be spoilt for choice.

With respect to pricing, I had assurance during my brief tour of the place that their bottles are well below normal retail selling price. What’s more, if you decide that you want to da pao (takeaway) wines instead of drinking at Winederlust, you pay $10 less.

winederlust wine buffet

The Wine Buffet

The crux of the matter that I would like to highlight would be their wine buffet. Available every Saturday and Sunday, you pay $48++ for 2 hours free flow of up to 3 different wines. If you don’t have a clue as to what to choose, feel free to ask any of the knowledgeable staff for assistance.

To top it all off, what seals the deal for me would be the food. For an additional $10, you can enjoy and pair selected Chef’s Creations with your wines. JUST $10 for the normal portion!

winederlust tuna

Tuna Tataki Chimichanga, $14 a la carte or $10 with wine buffet

Corn Tostadas, Onion Avocado Sesame Tabbouleh

Seafood and white wine is a no brainer. Senior sommelier, Amir Solay suggested pairing this dish with a Pagos (a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc) and who am I to question a man with over 20 years of experience?

The tuna (sourced from the shores of Japan) was beautifully seared on the outside and extremely fresh. The pairing of the light and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc was perfect for this appetizer.

 winederlust cheese salad

Caprese Mozzarella Salad, $12 a la carte or $10 with wine buffet

Buffalo Mozzarella, Heirloom Tomato, Smoke Fermented Beans

This dish was paired with Pagos, the same Sauvignon Blanc I had with the Tuna. The fermented beans (tempeh) and the mozzarella is a little fatty and leans more on the rich spectrum. The Pagos is perfect to wash away said fattiness and gelat-ness with its light acidity.

On that note, I’ve never had such a tasty and tender tempeh before! I’m used to the hard nonsense I get at Ayam Penyet stores. So you can imagine how surprised I was after my first bite.

winederlust sous vide pork belly

Sous Vide 12 Hours Pork Belly, $20 a la carte or $10 with wine buffet

Braised Lima Beans, Grated Daikon, Pork Jus

Moving on to their mains, this dish was paired with a French Cabernet Sauvignon, a much heavier red wine. The Sous Vide Pork Belly is a heavy dish so pairing it with a heavier, full bodied wine provides the palate with a sense of equilibrium.

Wow. The pork belly was superb! Loved how the fats melted in my mouth and how tender the meat was. The element that I absolutely went crazy over was the pork crackling. It was crispy but not over the top kind of crispy (like Chicharrón in the Philippines). I only wished there was more of that on this dish.

winederlust is it worth it

Is the juice worth the squeeze?

Head on down during the weekend and get that wine buffet. Let’s take one of their main dishes, the pork for example. It costs $20 a la carte but with the wine buffet, it’s only $10!!! SICK! What’s more, you get to pair all the good food with great wines!

Award Winning Chef @ Tempura Tenten Whips Up Some Seriously Great Tasting Tendons

James Chan

Tempura Tenten @ Raffles City

Tempura Tenten might be a little hard to find at the basement of Raffles City but just look out for Din Tai Fung and you’ll find Tempura Tenten right next to it. It seems that we have no end to Japanese restaurants setting up here in Singapore. The big question is then “IS IT GOOD?”

Tempura Tenten chef mamoru

The Food

Did you know that a Ramen Champion cooks your food for you? Chef Mamoru Kanaya was trained by the God of Ramen, Kazuo Yamagashi and needless to say, under his tutelage, he won the title of Ultimate Ramen Champion for two consecutive years!

Chef Mamoru also has the unique ability to distinguish ingredients by the sizzling sounds they make in the fryer (this sounds like a character straight from a Japanese anime).

If you think his prowess is just limited to ramen, think again. The tempura that gets whipped up in the kitchen is crazy good.

Tempura Tenten premium king prawn tendon

Premium King Prawn Tendon, $19.80

I went with the spicy version and the truffle rice (top up $1 for the rice). The flesh of the prawns were firm, fresh, extremely sweet and humongous! Pair that with the fragrant truffle rice (the smell of the truffle hits you as soon as it arrives on the table) and you have a SUPER VALUE MEAL right there. Oh and don’t waste the prawn heads, break them apart and hit EVERYTHING in there. The chilli somehow embeds itself in the head and forms this extremely tasty crust like goodness.

Tempura Tenten Unatendon

Unatendon, $19.80

This is one of the classic signature dishes at Tempura Tenten. It sure lives up to its mantle with its melt-in-your-mouth Unajyu (eel from Kagoshima) and assortment of mixed tempura. When you sink your teeth into the tempura, you’ll find a very light and fluffy crust that is extremely crispy. I’m told that this takes a lot of skill. Well done Chef Mamoru! I particularly like the Chicken Tempura with Cheese.

Tempura Tenten Ebi Miso Ramen

Ebi Miso Ramen, $16.80

Of course I had to try a ramen from a Ramen Champion! The prawns in this dish really injected a strong seafood aftertaste to the broth of the ramen. Every mouthful was full of flavor. It’s interesting because there’s A LOT of different flavor profiles in this dish but somehow they all harmoniously come together to form one hearty bowl of goodness.

Tempura Tenten so worth it

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

Definitely! You’re getting food prepared and cooked by an award winning Chef! With that in mind, the price becomes justifiable and somewhat more affordable in a sense since you’re paying for value (okay maybe that’s just for me, my mind works in mysterious ways). That aside, I would keep going back for that light and crispy Tempura batter though!

Enjoy Authentic German Burgers At Picturesque Hans Im Glück

James Chan

Hans Im Glück

Hans Im Glück is a German Burger bar and a must visit for all you Instagram lovers because the place is so darn pretty! Following a consistent dreamy and foresty theme, they even went so far as to import their wood from Germany!

hans im gluck sauces

Located at the International Building, Hans Im Glück houses two areas. One for dining and the other for chugging them tasty cocktails (the bar). Both areas come with indoor and alfresco options.

The Food

The menu can be a little challenging for some (me included). Most of the items on the menu are German words and I had no inkling how to pronounce them. Stick to the good old “point and order”, you can’t go wrong there. That aside, even the menu is so pretty! It was designed like a fairy tale storybook that depicts the story of Hans and his eventful journey home.

At Hans Im Glück, on top of the usual Beef and Chicken Burgers, they have Vegan and Vegetarian Burgers too! These burgers come served from a choice of Sourdough Bun, Multigrain Bun or Naked (ironically this means it comes with no buns). Their buns are also produced by a local German Bakery by the way!

As for your sides, you can choose from Geleit (Mixed Salad), Krautknolle (German White Cabbage Salad), Fritten (Fries) or Susskartoffel-fritten (Sweet Potato Fries). I recommend the Krautknolle as it refreshes your palate with its sourness and makes every bite of your burger seem like a new one.

hans im gluck birkenwald

Birkenwald With Sourdough, $16

Beef and Mushroom Burger

You get the feeling that they’re all about enjoying food and also looking after your body. The Birkenwald is no exception with their Australian imported beef and contains 20% less fat than normal market standards. This is my favorite burger HANDS DOWN. You can never go wrong with beef and mushroom. Hans Im Glück ups their game by spreading that secret, slightly spicy, special sauce on the patty. I’m pretty sure there’s wasabi or mustard in there.

hans im gluck geselle

Geselle With Multigrain, $15

Chicken Breast And Bacon

I’ve always said that chicken breast is a hard meat to work with (literally). Just slightly overcooking it can make it dry and flaky. Fret not, the chicken here was tender and perfectly cooked. However, the bacon was just a tad dry. I don’t know about you but I can overlook the sinfulness of having bacon in my meal just because I ate this burger with the multigrain bun (and this is why I’m fat).

hans im gluck wolpertinger

Wolpertinger Naked, $15

Spicy Patty With Aged Cheddar And Avocado Cream

This is a vegetarian burger and I’m honestly surprised at how much I liked it. The spicy patty is only slightly spicy so don’t get your hopes up spice lovers. But, it works really well with the secret sauce (they have it in ALL of their burgers). I especially loved the avocado cream. It was cool, refreshingly sour and very tasty.

hans im gluck cocktails

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

You cannot find these German burgers ANYWHERE in Singapore. It’s a true German experience without having to leave the country! Hans Im Glück’s attention to detail is remarkable and burgers aside, they make some pretty great tasting cocktails too! Just remember to save yourself the embarrassment, point and order!

Till 5pm – Top up $5 for a hot/cold beverage and a side

From 5pm – Top up $15 for an alcoholic cocktail (yums) and a side

 

They have limited seating so I would suggest to make a reservation via CHOPE with the link below:

BPC Cafe – Home Cooked Meals Passed Down From Generation to Generation

James Chan

BPC Cafe

Run by two brothers with a strong passion for cooking, BPC Cafe recently opened for business earlier in 2018. They’re located at Burlington Square, where the competition for the office crowd and students from Laselle and SOTA is extremely strong.

BPC Cafe Storefront

So how have they survived thus far? The answer lies in their competitive pricing and of course their delicious rice bowls.

The Food

In a short interview with one of the brothers, Mr Vincent, I found out that BPC stands for Beef, Pork and Chicken. Which are the ingredients you’ll find in any of their dishes.

Similar to a Japanese fast food brand that specializes in rice bowls (not mentioning names here) BUT the difference here is, BPC Cafe’s bowls actually taste good! BPC’s rice bows allow one to reminisce about the joys of good old home cooking. Also, the recipes for these bowls are interestingly passed down from their mother and from watching her cook when they were younger. Trust me, when someone says that, expectations will be raised (like mine were).

BPC Cafe Black Pepper Beef Bowl

Black Pepper Beef Rice Bowl, $8.90

The beef was extremely tender and well marinated with slight sweet and spicy notes pleasantly enveloping your palate. Everything in the bowl has been well thought of. Personally, for me, I felt the portion was a little small though. But I’m a savage. This was definitely my personal favorite!

BPC Cafe Bulgogi Spicy Chicken

Bulgogi Spicy Chicken Rice Bowl, $7.90

The chicken wasn’t spicy! But they gave a generous amount of chicken though! It was tender, flavorful and I love how each individual ingredient works well together to create a wholesome and appealing dish. Oh and did you know that they make the kimchi in house?

BPC Cafe Crispy Pork Chop Nppdle

Crispy Pork Chop Noodle, $6.50

One of their new introductions to their existing menu. Looked a little plain to be honest but that pork chop, my goodness. For that price, it’s so much value! You get a crispy crust with tender meat and you’ll definitely feel full for sure. Even if you don’t, just order another one lah!

 

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

For the price and the quality of food you get, I would give it a solid YES from me. Everything I ordered was delicious! Remember how at the start of this article I said my expectations were raised because Mr Vincent told me all his dishes were from recipes passed on to him from his mother? Let’s just say my expectations were well met.

Summer Hill – Order That Godlike Roasted Chicken

James Chan

Summer Hill

Let’s just say you can’t miss Summer Hill (even though they’re really small) because it’s easily the prettiest eatery in the WHOLE of Sunset Way.

Looks aside (mama always said not to judge people by their looks), for a bistro located in a HDB estate, there seems to be a disconnect with their high pricing. That doesn’t stop throngs of people from coming to eat at Summer Hill though. You’ll understand why if you order the Roast Chicken.

The Food

They have an extremely simple menu with limited offerings so you don’t need to overwork your brain too much before ordering. Also, their portions are relatively big and justifies their prices. Here’s what we ordered.

summer hill mussels

Fresh Mussels Cooked in White Wine . $25

You get a generous amount of delicious and perfectly cooked mussels. Fresh, plump, sweet and juicy – everything I look out for when it comes to mussels.

Signature Roast Chicken, $23 for half, $45 for whole

This chicken is DA BOMB. It comes with a homemade sauce but honestly, I didn’t even need the sauce. The chicken is so damn good, I could eat it on its own. The mark of how good a chicken is can easily be judged by how tender the breast is. At Summer Hill? SO TENDER!

summer hill roast beef

Boneless Beef Roast, Grass Fed, $36

It’s a decent dish but I’ve honestly had better roasts in Singapore. That green chilli sauce has a slight spicy aftertaste which is a definite plus but that it.

summer hill pork collar

Roast Pork Collar, $25

Nope. Didn’t work for me. The meat, although marinated perfectly, was tough and pretty hard to go down.

 

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

Yes to the Roast Chicken & the Mussels. I would come back for those two dishes for sure. Furthermore, it’s located so near to one of favorite drinking places, Stickies Bar @ Sunset! Eat, Drink, Sleep, Repeat!
