I had a late lunch in Brother Hubbard today. It’s one of those places I keep hearing about, and it was on my list of places that serve Organic For Us milk in their drinks, so I killed two birds today.
It didn’t disappoint, even if it was more crowded than I expected. It’s squeezed into a long and narrow building, but they are expanding into the shop next door soon.
The place had a good atmosphere with its friendly and attentive staff and mix of trendy hipsters. We ordered two homemade iced drinks, a raspberry, apple and rose lemonade, and a Moroccan mint tea. Both of which were refreshing and not too sweet.
We also both ordered the signature sandwich, the famous pulled pork. It comes served with a choice of three salads. I went for the slaw of red and white cabbage, beetroot, yogurt and tahini dressing with lots of dill on top.
The pulled pork is served on two slices of toasted Tartine bread, but would have been better served on crusty sourdough roll I think, although my friend thought that would be to heavy. As it was, it was a huge portion, with a creamy celeriac remoulade, pickled grated beet root and rocket, all piled high on the plate.
When we finally finished our sandwiches, we moved to an indoor seat and ordered some cakes and hot drinks, all in the name of research of course! I had a large cappuccino, made with the organic milk and 3FE coffee, and an cinnamon and walnut scroll. The coffee was great, and creamy enough for me not to need any sugar. The scroll was huge and also delicious.
My friend ordered the hot chocolate, which came out with a jug of hot chocolate milk, and a rich chocolate ganache in the cup. Together they made a luxurious but not too heavy hot chocolate.
She also ordered the orange and almond cake, with a chocolate ganache and chopped nuts. It was very fragrant but not too heavy. She took half of it home, as we were reaching out limit at this point.
I thoroughly enjoyed Brother Hubbard, and plan on coming back at the weekend for their yummy-looking brunches. They seem to go out of their way to offer more than the usual trendy options available in Dublin, and their ingredients were fresh and great quality. I’m already already looking forward to brunch…
