Restaurant review: Buzzy brunch at Ian’s Kitchen was worth the long wait

Jordan Mooney visits this new Kimmage hotspot and was won over by gorgeous pancakes and a special full Irish but could have done without being turfed out before coffee

If you’ve read any of my reviews before – or the Food&Wine newsletter – then you’ll know that I love brunch. Like, really love it. There’s something about it that just wins me over every time. Perhaps it’s the Instagram-worthy dishes I tend to choose, the extensive iced coffee game or just the fact that it’s more of an all-day thing.

I am constantly on the lookout for great places to try. So far, my favourite dish this year has been the sensational corned beef hash from Neighbourhood in Naas, though brunch is sadly no longer an option there. It lives on in my memory.
