Jones the Grocer - justifiably palatable

Jones the Grocer is a food emporium bakery / cafe concept that is rather popular in Australia and the States - a store selling an assortment of cheese, ham, jars of marmalade, jam etc and yet, providing tables for shoppers to have a meal or drinks. I like the non-fussy, relaxed atmosphere of that place, where one could totally chill out and enjoy hearty food easily in a darkly-lit store filled with goodies on display.

We were really here for the Cheese, Fruits and Salami platter (second photo). For this platter, you get to choose a variety of cheese (we chose the conservative Mozzarella, Cheddar and one more with name that eluded my memory), then some Parma Ham and Salami, and some crackers and some dates and figs. It was really delicious - cutting tiny pieces of each and nibbling on them slowly, enjoying the exotic tastes of dairy products and cured meats. It was a little overwhelming at the end of the meal, but nonetheless, extremely satisfactory.

Errrr, yes, as though I haven't had enough cheese for one night! But this is a treasure! A very tasty piece of subtly-cheesy cheesecake, with a smooth (slightly grainy) feel. The brownie atop, and brownie chunks within - make for a great balance of sweetness and saltiness blend. Even the brownie is velvety. For a non-fan of cheesecakes, I always make an exception for this particular Brownie Cheesecake.
