Jones The Grocer was started in 1996 and sells premium Aussie food and drinks with its first store in Sydney. I recently browsed around a very crowded outlet in Singapore at Dempsey Hill. As you enter it strikes you how pretty this store is with its array of cookbooks you’re free to browse, Lily floral arrangement, and its high ceilings filled with racks of beautifully packaged food and drinks. Careful attention has been paid to every little detail and it shows.
I wondered around amazed by the assortment and variety of gourmet stuff. My head was spinning.
Real loose tea leaves which are so hard to find because our local groceries stores usually only have tea dust or tea bags. Now I know where to get them besides TWG at ION.
Don’t these jars of honey look divine?
I was most taken in by the biscuit packaging which was so sweet and would be a perfect gift for a child or supposed grown-ups like me who still love all things cute. I would choose the lemon curd biscuits which were pricey at $11.90 Singapore dollars.
I am impressed by the temperature controlled cheese room – the first I’ve seen in Singapore, but then again I am pretty swakoo (Singlish for a person who doesn’t get out much)
I was intrigued by the Rosewater which sells for $15.90 Singapore dollars a bottle. I love the scent of rosewater, it’s one of my favourite food scents followed by vanilla.
All sorts of juices for a decadent picnic.
The dining area was very crowded. There is not much privacy as this is basically communal type dining with long tables in a huge hall. For dining I think I would prefer Culina which has loads more privacy. Perhaps it would be better to come here on a quieter weekday.
This is what the place looks like from the outside. The architecture of the roof reminds me of an attap hut with colonial style splendor hidden inside. I love the bare cement floors of the interior. I hope to come here for a meal or coffee one day or at least buy some lovely groceries for a party.
