Try making your own. They're not that hard and pretty fun when they "puff" up.

I was speaking to a guy that has a kebab shop in JLT (English guy) and was talking about the subject of pitta bread and he said he has been all over the place and can not find a decent source, he even had people try to replicate it over here but it just did not taste the same.

Also 35Dhs for 4?!?!?! lol no chance

Really? Are they easy?? That would be so cool (guess I can google the recipe, but any tips on which would be a good one?).

Can't remember, it's been a while since I made any.

They're not that hard but it's one of those things where if you fail, it's still fun to try to make!

My advice would be to find a recipe by someone from the "right country". I wouldn't go to Gordon Ramsay or Jamie Oliver for a thai green curry recipe so I wouldn't try them for pitta either

Spinneys used to bake their own pitta bread. Have you tried that?

Things I can't find in Dubai:

- a proper english curry-house curry
- a Krav Maga club
- properly trained, knowledgeable shop assistants
- a gang of spitting hoodies loitering in my path
- a bloke spewing chunks in a shop doorway at kicking out time.
- fat, screeching slags covered in tats and splitting the seams of their hoof-skimming micro-skirts

Rough with the smooth, rough with the smooth.

1 and 2 - huh? What's wrong with the curries out here? I would have said they were closer to authentic than the ones I recal from my time in the UK (OK that was a long time back)

3 to 5 -
