What kinds of organic, vegetarian and allergy-friendly foods are available, such as organic produce, gluten-free products, meat substitutes for vegetarians, etc?

There is some variety at the grocery stores mentioned above, but it can be difficult to find ethnic foods. There is also a little German store that tends to carry a lot of difficult to find items. There is also an American store in Selite run mby the missionary community which sells American food items. The embassy is also trying to expand its minimal commissary to offer more foods that are difficult to find here. Vegetarians seem to do well here. - Oct 1, 2011
