‘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, […]

COOL: Tonkotsu, W1

September 26, 2012 by


words: tomek mossakowski Tonkotsu. Bless you! This is the joke I use every time someone mentions Tonkotsu, the new, hip ramen shop that’s right in the middle of Soho. What’s ramen? Japanese noodles in pork bone broth. Is it COOL? Yes. Why? Cos it’s delicious. The menu is small: you can have 3 broths, traditional, spicy or […]

COOL: Assagetti (SW1Y)

COOL: Duke’s Brew & Que (RIB-SHACK!)

April 30, 2012 by


There we were about to take a break from smoked goods – cos’ they’re not exactly beneficial to your health – when we discovered London’s COOLEST new BBQ shack. Duke’s Brew and Que. Do you like ribs? Because you owe it to yourself to book a table here this second if you do. Last summer, […]

UNCOOL: Market Cafe, E8

April 10, 2012 by


words: Tomek Mossakowski There’s NO business like SHOOOOWWW business on BRRRROOOADDDWAY – Market. Yes, Broadway Market, the home of red-chino’d twats and Instagram. It’s all just getting a lil’ UNCOOL, isn’t it? Case and point: the new café-CUM-bar called, err, Market Cafe. We thought we’d pop along for a pint, just the one, and guess […]
