It took me almost two (2) years to finally find this shop. I was still in Davao and preparing for my weddin and I wanted to buy some pecorino cheese as my wedding token. I found some shops in Davao that sells gourmet cheese unfortunately they don’t sell whole rings. They sell it by grams. So I asked my husband, fiancé back then to check the market in Abu Dhabi and that’s the first time I encountered this shop was when I was scouring the internet for cheese sellers in Abu Dhabi. My husband, fiancé back then, had a hard time looking for the shop, I didn’t believe him the, because knowing men. When I finally got here, my search for this shop continued. Still it was difficult to find unless you have your own car to leisurely scour the area. And recently before Christmas, we finally did found this shop. Though not the first shop but the shop located here in Khalidiya area, still it is Jones the Grocer.
The cake, sad to say has the texture of a one day old cake. The icing is gummy and the cake is dry. Not at all what we have expected. But the ice cream gets 2 thumbs up. The vanila was incredibly creamy and the pistachio is yummy. Our total bill for that night was AED 163.00.
Reasonable price. You would think with all the glass exterior and modern interior design that the price would be a bit stiff, but no, it was ok. Asked if I would recommend this place? Yes, definitely. Next time I’d try the Wagyu Burger next time.
