Dublin – Brother Hubbard brunch

This restaurant has two branches, one South and one North of the river.  We visited the North restaurant for brunch on Monday and the place was packed! The chef behind Brother Hubbard’s Turkish and Middle Eastern influences created anything but a standard brunch menu. Being as greedy as I am in my ambition to try…

Dublin – Beshoff Bros

I spotted a few of these restaurants in Dublin. Beshoff Bros brands itself as a fish and chips store and the take away stores in Dublin have a very clean and trendy interior. We decided to visit this place for lunch on our day trip to Howth. What we got was so much more than take away fish…

The sourdough gives it a very fluffy but airy texture. There is a store as well as a number of kiosks…
