Dubai - Post Report Question and Answers

What household or grocery items do you wish you had shipped to post?

Chicken broth (especially low sodium), cereal and granola (very expensive in Dubai!), maple syrup, quality baking products (ex. cocoa), Asian and Latin American sauces. There are specialty stores in the International City for Asian products as well as a Korean grocery store (1004 Gourmet), but there isn't as much variety as T&T or HMart back home. - Mar 2021

Chicken broth and chicken noodle soup. Pork is available in the western grocery stores, but non-halal chicken products are almost impossible to find. - Jan 2021

Saltine crackers. Good hot sauce and BBQ sauce. An outdoor grill (overpriced here). - Jul 2013

Everything is available here but more expensive. - Aug 2011

Nothing. You can get it all here. - Jan 2011
