Get ready to indulge in the cheesy charm of The Cheese Deli Singapore! 🧀🍷

the cheese deli Jimmy

Yes, Jimmy is one big guy, who completely dwarfed me. Maybe it’s a cheese thing? You must come and meet him, chat about cheese, and just let his passion for his products flow over you. This guy knows his stuff. And, both he and Clarrisa are Siglappers – so come support your locals…

We were visiting The Cheese Deli to buy some cheese for a recurring event, and whilst there we had a great chat with Jimmy and Clarrisa, and even a tasting. Yes, that did the job, because I walked out of there with a bag full, and had a very happy Wifey later that evening. It is now absolutely Islifearecipe’s go-to cheese shop in Singapore.

The above is showing you just one of their cheese fridges. They have a serious amount of cheese on offer from all-walks and all countries. Goat, cow, sheep, French, German, Spanish and so on. You name it, they’re pretty much got it. It’s also so spacious and airy in here. We sat at their table and munched on the tasting platter. It was uber-cool. 

They also hold the occassional special event including making cheese toasties… Yes, we did discuss having a ChillaxBBQ pop-up if they can get permission to have the BBQ outside: watch this blog for an update on that.

Have a look at that bad boy… WOOF!!! Our tasting platter, which was. just off-the-charts good. I’ll need to visit Jimmy again to get all the names of the cheeses though, because this old brain has completely forgotten, bar one which you’ll see more of shortly.

Suffice it to say the blue was one of the best I have ever had, the truffle was delicious, the soft cheese top right was more like a Spanish burnt cheese cake so creamy, the little cubes of ‘pizza’ cheese were insanely good, the other cubes a really awesome hard cheese and finally the pot of ‘cream cheese’… read on.

The. cream cheese’ is this bad boy from Spain. I checked in with the Spanish Trade Ambassador for Singapore and he mentioned this is super-popular in Spain. That validates that. You cut the top off this cheese and then scoop out the unctuous gooey cheese. This is one stinky, powerful, almost fermented in taste cheese – and we LOVED IT!!! Top of the shop, what a cracker this was. This is the one when I joked earlier about having a sense of adventure. Yep this one tilts the scales.

the cheese deli gifts

They even have some really cool gifts at The Cheese Deli. I tell you one of those cool Indiana Jones-style picnic blankets is coming home with me next time. That’s a must-have for a picnic with cheese and charcuterie down the beach on the East Coast.

Some superb platters, like stellar platters, cheese slicer sets, even monster cheese platters for the huge wheels of cheese… now there’s a thought for that ChillaxBBQ pop-up Jimmy my friend: Cheese Fondue, I heart Mac and Cheese, and Cheese Wheel Pasta Pop-Up… No need for the BBQ then.

And if you need some port, wine, Whisky, gin, or access to a massive variety of other exotic tipples, look no further. This is a picnic waiting to happen in The Cheese Deli Singapore. And I am so up for that.
