Go to the fruit and veggie mart, and don't buy what they display. Tell them you want fresher, and there is great stuff behind the counters.

Have you tried A-Mart on SZR (just off the Safa Park interchange) - on your right going towards Jebel Ali.

Again, try A-Mart on SZR. They're a specialty Japanese supermarket. That said, if its fermented to the extent that its got alcohol, you'll obviously have to look elsewhere.

Newbie question,

Not yet out there, and very sorry if it has been asked and answered before, I've done a quick search and couldn't see it!

Milk!

I need Cows milk, is this possible?!

Yorkshire tea bags too if possible?

Haha, I'm too British I feel!

Milk and Tea!? Pop into any Spinneys, Carrefour, Al Maya, Lulu and you should easily find both.

Milk of any kind is haraam here. Cows are seen as demons.

Tea? Are you kidding? Tea has a higher import tax than alcohol. Tea will cost and arm and a leg out here.

Honestly, Twinings and Lipton are the biggest tea brands here. If you want Yorkshire Tea (I'm sure they have it somewhere but I haven't found it yet and it probably will be more expensive) bring you own...and bring me a box. I miss its "umph".

We live in a city where there's a coffee shop on each corner. I think you'll be fine for milk and tea
