There used to be a ThreeSixty Marketplace on the 4th floor of ION Orchard, but that upmarket supermarket has been closed. In its place is Jasons The Gourmet Grocer, located in basement 4, in the far end away from the food hall. Both brands are owned by Cold Storage.
I can never resist the curiosity to explore a new supermarket, especially one that stocks more unusual items.
Jasons at ION Orchard really lives up to its “gourmet” name. There’s even a dedicated cheese room here, just like Jones The Grocer in Dempsey!
I wanted to shoot pictures of the cheese room to show you, as well as fresh oysters and a S$699 caviar, but the staff came up and stopped me. Here are what I managed to snap:
Individual white or black truffle in jars.
Tetsuya black truffle salt.
Himalayan pink salt.
Dried oyster and porcini mushrooms.
Gourmet pastas, flavored with black ink squid, saffron, or garlic & basil.
If you’re thinking of making your own gourmet burgers, there’s fresh wagyu beef patties for your convenience (at S$4.50 each).
A wide range of chutneys: onion; pineapple; mango & chilli; mango & ginger; papaya & orange; chilli. They all sound so delish! I think these will be great with roast meats, cheeses or in sandwiches.
Gourmet flavored oils for your salad dressing or for bread dips.
Garlic puree in a convenient squeeze tube! Hmm, any suggestions for garlic puree?
Violet jam and rose petal jelly, too pretty to eat! I’ve also seen these at Paragon Market Place.
Juices and smoothies from Australia. I love their wacky labels.
Not your usual Pantene, even the shampoos are more upscale here!
