When it comes to hangover cures, we’ve heard it all. I’ve tried guzzling water, popping painkillers and even reached for the Berocca, but there’s only one thing that truly works… food. So when I found myself feeling the effects of a wild family wedding in Dublin, it was off to Brother Hubbard North to see if the brunch specialists could aid my recovery.
Satisfying breakfast and brunch cravings 7 days a week, Brother Hubbard is all about seasonal dishes with bursts of Middle Eastern influence. Located minutes from the River Liffey, the spacious venue is also home to a dedicated takeaway and retail shop, alongside a private dining space and cosy courtyard. Be prepared to wait for a table at this multifaceted hotspot.
Not ones to do things by halves, Brother Hubbard serve cocktails by the carafe, as well as the glass. Thirst-quenching libations include classic brunch tipples like mimosas and bellinis, but it was the Rosita (€8.50) for me. A refreshing blend of raspberry, apple and rose topped off with a splash of prosecco, this was the perfect pick me up.
Making our way through the concise brunch menu, we eyed up a couple of winners. Eggs Menemen (€12.50) came layered with whipped feta, Kalamata olives, baby spinach and a chilli salsa which packed a proper zing. Meanwhile, French Toast (€12.95) brought the sweetness with dollops of chocolate truffle ganache, tahini-date caramel and sesame honeycomb wedged between fluffy golden brioche.
