Jones The Grocer… A look…

I love unique concepts in food… so be it bakery, a restaurant or as is the case here, simply a grocery store… Sometime back, I had come across a grocery store (if you can call it that) that left me quite fascinated… thanks to some unique variety available there…

Jones The Grocer, is quite a gourmet delight. Stocked to the brim with well-laid out gourmet ingredients, right from everyday pastas to imported meat, to different types of teas to a delicious selection of cheese, this store is a delight to just walk around.

Here’s a look at what all is on offer.

– They have some unique Mayonnaise flavours with Rosemary, Garlic and even Bacon. Their collection of flavoured yogurt is also quite good.

The freezer room is well-stocked and the temperature control allows for the cheese to remain fresh and palatable.

– They have a separate collection of Jams and Compotes that look fresh and not really factory produced. I got their strawberry jam which was quite nice and not sugary.

– They have wine and oak vinegars commonly used in a lot of European cuisines… these vinegars are lower in acidity than normal or cider vinegar.

– I was quite impressed with their collection of Pastas as well… although here I definitely thought they were quite pricey.

– They have a huge collection and variety of beef and pork. I very rarely buy beef or pork myself, but I have had a few friends go gaga over the fact that they get some really good quality imported meat at Jones.

They also have a restaurant there… and their brunches are quite popular. I know of friends who love their Wagyu Beef Burger… Haven’t tried that yet… if and when I do… will put up the review…

A note, most of the products at this place are quite pricey… It’s not a normal grocery store… Most products are imported and they claim these products are not easily available in Singapore… Having said that… do take a look around this shop, even if you do not wish to buy anything… It’s a unique experience.
