Is there anything you can't find in Dubai?
I thought I'd start a thread so we can all help each other find less common items in Dubai. You'd be surprised what you can get here - you just have to know where to go.

Post anything you are looking for and hopefully other posters will have helpful suggestions.

Given the mass losses at forex over the years, the Edgeware Road will still be busy for a few years yet.

Mine is more of a question as I'm still such a newbie! (one week in)

Can you get free range chicken/eggs/organic dairy here at all? I've only looked so far in Carrefour as that's the nearest supermarket to me, but I just want to know if I'm wasting my time even contemplating it! I saw organic eggs (my God, the markup over the other eggs!), but nothing relating to welfare standards. I like my meat ethical & dairy organic where poss. Spinneys? And if it is available, I presume it attracts a huuuuuuge premium, but how huge?

Thank you, gurus :D

Nice idea for a thread!

1) fresh soups in the refrigerated section, ready to heat up and eat.
2) pure gelatin (no added strawberry colours, flavours, etc)
3) pure vitamin C powder

1. Mince pies (the real ones, not that Pommy sh*te)
2. Nice fresh fruit (that doesnt look like it came out of a dusty barn on Mars)
3. Decent green leafy veges (that don't look like they were knicked off a grave)
4. Was going to be Nespresso pods/machines but I found them:-)))
