Smile 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.

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

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:-)))
