Jones the grocer
Shop 5018
Level 5 Westfield Centrepoint
Sydney, Sydney

Jones the grocer has continued its expansion with the opening of its Sydney flagship store in Westfield Centrepoint. It's a big open place on Level 5 occupying the space where Justin Norths Becasse used to be.

It's a combination of open kitchen restaurant/cafe, with very interesting combinations, and food store, so you can eat there and then grab some goodies to take away with you for later.

They also have a take away shop there as well, selling coffee, rolls, cakes, pastries with cured meats and cheeses inside. They certainly seem to have covered every option here! They are even open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We started with the sesame chicken skewers with teriyaki sauce. These are actually listed in the menu as a salad accompaniment but everything on that part of the menu also make great starters too!

The chicken was extremely tender and juicy and fell apart.

The tangy teriyaki sauce went perfectly and the sprinkle of sesame seeds capped it all off nicely.

One of the signature and most popular mains at Jones the grocer is the angel hair pasta with blue swimmer crab.

I chose this one and it comes served with chilli, rocket, garlic and grana padano and looks and tastes great.

Chilli, seafood and garlic are just made for each other. There was plenty of crab in this dish too - and the whole combination worked so well.

Mlady was attracted to the decent selection of vegetable and salad dishes and chose their pumpkin and roast vegetable salad.

It was a work of art and came with Persian feta and fresh mint as it arrived stacked high in a sea of vibrant colours.

The soft silky Persian feta tasted wonderful in this filling but healthy dish.

Dessert when eating out is almost compulsory - even for lunch!

Mlady eventually chose the warm sticky date pudding from a good list of options.

It was served with salted caramel sauce and vanilla bean ice cream and was absolutely delicious.

This stuff was seriously good! The sauce was hard to stop eating.

I love desserts that are sweet and full of chocolate, but also go for something a bit bitter sweet sometimes - and usually it ends up being a dish with lemon or lime in it.

The glazed lemon tart with confit citrus and creme fraiche caught my eye and it lived up to my high expectations! It was a tasty lemon filling on a nice biscuit base and had a creme brulee like crunchy top. I loved it.

Jones the grocer is a place with great food to dine on and some very interesting delicacies for taking away. It's a foodies nest up high in Centrepoint!

Sir and Mlady dined as guests of Jones the grocer. Thanks to restaurant manager Quinton, Honore and Inda for looking after us so well on our visit and to Chef Tom for the great food. Special thanks also to Jessie Hargreaves of Cav Con for arranging our visit.
