Jones the Grocer

Jones the Grocer is clearly my favorite brunch place in Singapore. It's a 2-in-1. Restaurant cum gourmet food market. Imagine having your meal & being surrounded by delicious looking food items.

There is a bar counter with delectable displays of cupcakes & pastries. A meat section - where I finally found my chorizo (yeah!) & the most amazing cheese room. The Girl who seemed to have lost her taste for cheese since we arrived, sampled everything they had to offer.

The products here are definitely high end. I didn't end up buying much. I just enjoy browsing at food markets, in general & this one is really good. I'm eyeing their balsamic vinegar - maybe the next time.

I won't be heading there for my weekly grocery run but for those hard to find items, this place could be a good source.

The very delectable cheese room with a selection that could rival any supermarket in France. Everything is well labelled & there was a tasting platter which The Girl generously helped herself to.

That was my dish - poached eggs with smoked salmon. I only remembered to take a picture after I'd dug into the egg. Hey, at least I remembered before I finished - a good thing too cos I wiped the plate clean. I LOVE eggs for breakfast - doesn't matter how they are done - scrambled, fried, soft boiled, hard boiled, omelette or poached.

The communal sitting appeals to me too - you get to see what everybody else is eating. If you go during the weekends, make sure you go early to snag a seat inside. If not, you can eat out on the balcony (but even with the fans, it can get rather hot).

Didn't know Jones the Grocer had a branch in Spore. There is a store here in Sydney too, but too expensive for everyday shopping, only for special items. How r u njoying life in Spore? Adjusted to the heat and humidity?

charming - it's tough waking up early to go to work & of course the heat, but other than that, we're both adjusting pretty well. Jones the Grocer is not your regular grocery store.

I love this place for the shopping. Have not tried the breakfast though. Must do! Scrambled eggs with salmon is my absolute fav. It looks delish!
