The UAE’s much-loved Australian ‘food emporium’ – Jones The Grocer – opened its sixth branch at the Emirates Golf Club in August 2017. Join The Huntr as we present our full review…
Jones The Grocer Emirates Golf Club is licensed, expansive and full of chilled vibes for breakfast, lunch, drinks and dinner. There’s a special kids corner for the little ones to keep busy in (although it’s worth noting that it could do with a little spruce and a few more fun toys), a bar area, indoor and outdoor dining area, beautiful open kitchen at the back and a plethora of special produce on offer to snap up take away – including cheeses, dry goods and even Jones The Grocer’s signature pasta sauces.
The Huntr visited for a casual Saturday lunch, we tried and loved the Fish & Chips and the Chargrilled Harissa Chicken, which comes with a North African couscous salad and red pepper emulsion. The extensive menu features breakfast favourites like Jones’ Traditional English Breakfast, acai smoothie bowls, granola creations and poached eggs. Plus more adventurous options such as the King Prawn Eggs Florentine and Green Chili Cheese Toast. For lunch and dinner, you can choose from a wide range of hearty dishes such as burgers, meats, and pastas, and there are lighter, healthier options available including wholesome salads for the health conscious. There’s also a special kids menu available. Drinks-wise, Jones The Grocer Emirates Golf Club is licensed and offers a plethora of premium beers, wines and spirits, alongside soft drinks and speciality coffee.
This family-friendly spot is the perfect place to head for a long, lazy weekend breakfast with the kids, or catch up with friends over bites and wine in the evening.
