I would eat sushi off a shit stained floor. I would. And, I wager, so would lots of sushi lovers. Or at least I hope they would. What often does it for me is the juxtaposition of elegant, delicately handcrafted sushi served in sinister surroundings. A basement with a dodgy lightbulb. The smell of rice […]

‘I LOVE YOU!!!!!’ shouted my boyfriend, across the table on Friday night. ‘Aw, I love you too babes!!’ I shouted back, picking my nose, focused on my menu. Then I looked up, and realised … he wasn’t talking to me. He was talking to the bottom of our waitress, Nadia. Yeah, so on Friday night, […]

UNCOOL: The things we think will happen to Justin Bieber

March 11, 2013 by


It’s painful to watch but Justin Bieber is rapidly losing control; of his temper, his likeness to Hilary Swank and most disturbingly, his clothes. Bopping around topless, nearing collapse during gigs, threatening paps with those soft-skinned fists – we’ve seen it all before. This guy’s on the verge of a meltdown.  Here are some of the […]

For all those not watching The Big Reunion on ITV2, it’s a reality show with Atomic Kitten, 5IVE, B*Witched, Liberty X, 911 and Honeyz who all dominated the UK music scene from the mid-nineties. In the show they’re all facing the demands of an upcoming live performance after years away from the spotlight. When EIC […]

COOL: Shrimpy’s, N1

February 19, 2013 by


words: Siobhan Rae This should have been a review about Ciao Bella; a tried and tested Italian on the ever-so-slightly-smug Lamb’s Conduit Street in Bloomsbury (‘People’s Supermarket’, anyone?). Hearty pizza, pasta and wine for two, usually for under £40. What’s not to love?! Being sat alfresco next to an unrelenting car alarm, THAT’S WHAT. Olives […]

*NEW FAVOURITE RESTAURANT ALERT* Pig is having a serious moment, guys. If Pig was a girl at school, she’d be so popular right now, everyone would want to sit next to her at lunch, licking her piggy face. They’d better watch out though, cos’ Pig’s not into crumby school politics. She’s a idzepedze woman who’ll […]

COOL: John Salt, N1

February 11, 2013 by


Isn’t it funny. Sometimes you write a review, publish it, read it back and realise it’s the most boring thing to ever leave your being. I’m talking about my previous John Salt write up, which now lives in the same place as Zayn Malik’s charm certificates. Look. Eating at John Salt is a seriously orgasmic journey, […]

COOL: St. John, EC1

January 13, 2013 by


There’s nothing quite like walking into a well revered meat restaurant in London, passing  tables of excitable diners on your way to yours and feeling jealous as you sit down. Of yourself. Because you know that in about 24 hours, you’ll wish you could be back. That’s what happened when EIC visited St. John, Farringdon, […]

#COOL The sexy debut album ‘Friends’ by this mixed gender outfit from Brooklyn, came out earlier this year and we’ve gone soppy on this tune. A lot.

COOL: Spreading cold butter on toast instantly!

November 27, 2012 by


Toast experts took their time but finally Warburtons have come up with the answer to the age old breakfast issue – butter that’s too cold to spread!! A special new knife whose blade heats to 41.8°C (107°F) after research found that is the optimum temperature to spread butter. Blatantly on lots of people’s Christmas wish list.
