The Joneses

... and so the food adventures begin...

first on the many cafe's we wanted to try out...
After work last Thursday we headed out to Jones the Grocer Cafe in khalidiya. - voted best Cafe by Time Out Abu Dhabi, it boasts of a gourmet menu sure to satisfy all cafe food connoisseurs  - really foie gras on a burger?!! can't get anymore gourmet than that!!!
The place was nice, definitely a different take from the usual cafe setting with their own fromagerie, bakery and grocery. It was not a fast food joint and it took some time for our orders to arrive, giving us ample time to browse and check out all the products they had to offer, taste samples and of course take pictures - remind me to come back for the truffle oil - I heard a drizzle transforms an ordinary grilled cheese into a gourmet sandwich.

Good enough food,  we mostly ordered sandwiches and good old mac and cheese. The sandwiches are good with soft crusty bread but the mac and cheese was a little too bland. I guess we missed out on the diversity by skipping the mains, salad and cheese platters. 

The food was served on wooded chopping boards as opposed to plates - which was a really nice touch, albeit with small portions - small for people with ravenous stomachs like us anyway!

will I go back?!! - hmmm... maybe... for the desserts and coffee at least :D as always the food is only as good as the company you keep - had a good time you guys!
