Time Out Says

If you’re in The Dubai Mall, there are plenty of places to rest weary feet. However, this new branch of the family-friendly Australian chain is worth stopping into.

There are large family groups chuckling amid the clunking of cutlery and sounds of swift servers taking orders.

Jones the Grocer is well-known for its cured meats, so we opt for the cured and curd platter. Filled with charcuterie that’s delicious – delicate slices of fresh veal chorizo, truffled salami and fatty smoked duck are carefully laid on the wooden board.

There’s also a selection of cheeses, which perfectly complements the meats. Think truffled brie and Shropshire blue, along with big olives and quince paste for a touch of sweetness.

The board’s balanced selection is satisfying and leaves us feeling as though we’d just returned from a trip to the Mediterranean – only to be reminded by the strong lighting that we’re still very much in the mall.

We also try the roast chicken and avocado sandwich. It’s a lot smaller than we thought it would be, but one of the best sarnies we’ve encountered. The confit garlic aioli and crispy beef bacon add an oomph to the roasted chicken – it’s more gobble-it-down shawarma than stale deli, and we can’t complain.

Jones the Grocer is a bustling eatery at The Dubai Mall with Fountain-view outdoor seating and a kids’ menu that’s family-friendly and pure fun.

If you’re in the mall – this is your new go-to casual dining spot.
