    Dropped by the Mandarin Gallery branch on a busy Saturday afternoon and the place was packed. Informed the staff that I needed a table for 2 and she said okay and walked off, so I waited, only to realise that there was another entrance to the area where people were waiting too. Then 2 ladies who just came in breezed right past me and parked themselves at a newly vacated table. Huh? I asked the staff which side was the correct queue, and she sheepishly said, oh both sides. I had to ask then can I be seated soon as the 2 ladies came after me had already seated themselves. It took another staff to come to me to offer me a table. They should really re-look their queue system.

    Service and system aside, we ordered some bites to share:

    Lemon meringue tart - the lemon was not strong enough and the pastry dissappointedly dry.

    Thick cut fries - it looked like it came from a frozen pack, sadly, although it was served piping hot. Came with a mustard dip that was quite addictive.

    Long Black - Credits to a good long black. Nicely pressed and acidic.

    Will seriously re-consider about dropping by again.

      I have a friend, his name is Jones. He is a grocer, and he ain’t a normal grocer. Gourmet products, that’s right. All the customers would drop by and waved, “Hello Jones!”. And the kids would peeked around curiously, and oh yes, they had a song which goes something like this;

      Jones the grocer, Can we eat it? Jones the grocer, Yes we can!

      Jones the grocer, I want some food! Jones the grocer, Come and get it!

      My latest breakfast-brunch crave brought me to Jones the grocer, because they are one of the few that serves brunch during weekdays (the other few being Prive, Rider’s, and Casa Verde).

      Much as I liked having brunch on a lazy Sunday morning, but the idea of having it during a WEEKDAY enthrals me even more! Well the rest of the world rushed off to work, I’m slowly sipping a cup of coffee, having my favourite eggs, and reading the newspaper. You get the idea?

      I want breakfast. I want eggs. I want pancakes.

      Pancakes we wanted, and Coconut pancakes ($12.5) we got! Sour mango wasn’t exactly what we expected, but it presented a contrast with the syrup, well they called it the palm sugar syrup here. Whatever, all the syrup tasted the same to me, sweet and sweet!

      And did you see what I saw? Vanilla beans! Tiny speaks of vanilla beans! I’m not going to go into the story of how excited I’ll become when I saw the beans, but, I’m excited! It was nice having vanilla beans with pancakes, but we did felt that it would be better to have it with butter and syrup for breakfast at least. And oh ya, the pancakes here are one of the thickest-I-ever-came-across.

      Jones english breakfast ($20). I’ll like to call it the best-of-everything. Poached eggs, grilled bacon, pork sausages, sautéed mushroom, and even slow roasted tomato for some nutritional balance! What is there not to like?

      I can never resist the golden-yellow egg yolk flowing out of the pure egg white: striptease - stop playing with me or I’ll eat you up! I put the poached eggs, bacon, and mushroom on top of the sourdough (the sausage was too huge to fit in on top), and I tried to put everything in one bite.

      Well I failed of course, but that’s obviously what I intended to; in this way I could repeat and repeat the same full-mouth-process until I finished the whole thing, and wanting more.

      Total bill was $35.75 for the brunch, they had 10% service charge but the 7% GST was already included in the bill. Was it expensive? No, for the mere thought that I was having my breakfast while the rest of the world were busy slogging it out in the office, that’s something priceless.

      But for weekday brunch, I’ll prefer Rider’s and Prive if you have your own transport, not that it is easy to get to dempsey either.

      You are always welcome to visit ladyironchef for a full-up on this trip. Whatever written herein are my genuine feelings expressed in words. Food, my dear, is what they call an adventure!

        It's extremely Aussie-fied, right down to the setting, the Aust. staff and the items stocked on their shelves. Expect to find hard-to-find items such as, rosewater, orange blossom water and Persian fairy floss. Although I thought the items were rather pricey, I couldn't resist buying various items since they are of good quality and hard to get elsewhere.

        We went there for brunch. Hubby had a banana smoothie and I had a mango smoothie, pretty good. Not too sweet but flavorful and creamy. He had the pumpkin soup, which was not bad but I thought a bit watered down. It was not watered down with water but with cream or something similar. There was not enough pumpkin as per the pumpkin soups you can get in Australia. I had a pumpkin salad, which was a tad bit too salty (I could crunch some bits of salt which greatly tasted like coarse sea salt). This was followed by a latte and a slice of vanilla & strawberry cake. The latte was excellent! The cake was not bad, but not great either. The cake came directly from refrigeration so it was a bit hard and dry, but the serving slice was very tall and generous.

        It was very relaxing to sit outdoors and the staff were attentive. They did not rush us as we took our time to eat while reading the papers. Overall, I'd definitely go back there again, if not to buy their wonderful groceries, at least for the ambience and setting.
