After seeing the selection of delicious food offered by jones’ dine-in restaurant, let’s take a look at their emporium. After all, jones the grocer is one of the most well-known stores in Singapore offering artisanal and gourmet food. Many of its products are made from the finest ingredients, curated specially to inspire and excite the taste buds of food connoisseurs. Let’s take a walk through their specialties.
The Walk-In Cheese Room
Singapore’s first walk-in cheese room features over 100 varieties of some of the world’s most cherished cheeses from countries such as France, Italy, England and Spain, among others. The cheese are kept in a carefully temperature and humidity controlled environment.
These cheeses are categorised according to the cheese type – blue, soft, semi-soft, hard, fresh and rind wash. Each category is complemented with its specific accompaniments such as dried fruits, nuts, fruit pastes, chutneys, fruit logs, truffle honey, crackers, crispbread and fresh breads. Besides these, accruements and accessories (cheese knives and platters) are sold with the cheese as well.
What I like about this arrangement is that it makes it very easy for a cheese novice to pick out light bites that complement the cheese he/she has chosen. Now, how about suggested wine pairings?
jones also sells crackers, nuts, breadsticks and other food items that are suitable to pair with cheese. These are housed in this display right outside the cheese room. The meat selection from Swiss Butchery jones has partnered with Singapore’s premium butcher, Swiss Butchery, to house a wide variety of premium meats right inside jones the grocer.
As part of its bespoke service, customers are welcomed to query on the types and cuts available, recommended marinades and even recipes. The meats can be brought home with or without marinating, or cooked a la minute to be enjoyed at jones or delivered home at one’s convenience.
Rows upon rows of artisanal produce
jones boasts an impressive collection of quality products, which ranges from luxury chocolates from London, to Bim’s Kitchen, an African-inspired condiment range.
jones also houses several brands that are known for their healthy products. One of these brands is Cocofina, which sells coconut-based health bars, oils, baking goods and vinegars.
The fresh bread, baked daily!
jones houses a bakery led by skilled bakers and pastry chefs, which results in these freshly baked bread displayed before you. All jones bread are organic, using only premium ingredients, and there is no use of artificial colours, flavours, preservatives or additives (which means the baked goods are best enjoyed on the day it is made).
With the festive season almost upon us, do consider visiting jones the grocer for your gourmet needs – from cheese to fresh cuts of meat, to unique chocolate offerings.
