Jones The Grocer

Met up with an old friend the other day and she brought me to Mandarin Gallery for some lunch. We actually planned to eat somewhere else, but it was full, so she suggested Jones the grocer instead. Sigh, been a housewife homemaker for way too long! I didn't even know they have so many eateries at the newly revamped Mandarin Gallery.

Anyway, the atmosphere at Jones was quite nice. The place was almost full, but it was still quite relaxed and cosy. I also love it that the place smells of freshly baked bread and other yummy food. It's great that they have a all-day breakfast menu because I did have a craving for breakfast stuff like eggs and bread, so I ordered their club sandwich.

Very hearty! With eggs, grilled chicken, bacon and tomato slice between toasted bread. YUM! Do you notice that it's quite difficult to find places in Singapore that serves simple breakfast menu but in an affordable price? Mostly are expensive restaurants or hotel cafes. Sometimes I just crave a classic breakfast with eggs, bacon and toast, or with pancakes with a hot cuppa coffee. An American diner style restaurant. Maybe I should open one myself. Heehee...

My buddy ordered their full english breakfast.

It looks good, but I was disappointed that that their poached eggs were so small! Worst, when you cut it open, the yolk wasn't oozing out like it's supposed to. Overcooked! Tsk Tsk Tsk...

Overall it was a pretty pleasant experience, would definitely go there next time I'm in Orchard Road with a craving for breakfast items at 2pm. :P
