  4. France Expat Forum for Expats Living in France
    Hi, I eat a lot of Tuna fish in cans, but have found the quality in France very variable. I've found in the past year that I've often opened a tin, and what was inside looked so inedible that I couldn't bring myself to eat it. I won't mention the brands - but I've tried the "big two" that...

    Musubi Staying with the food topic -- if there are any American expats reading who miss Hawaiian food, I determined earlier this week that one can use Tulip brand "Délice de jambon" and Riz Méditerranée de Camargue to make a not-half-bad musubi. Both are readily available in stores, as is nori...

    I kind of convinced my significant other to move to Bangkok recently (hi forum, I'm new here), and he's not super happy about. Still, he loves steak and I'm trying to get on his good side. Any great steakhouses in BKK? I saw a few places on tripadvisor that look great, but also super $$$ Lizzie
  11. Philippines Expat Forum
    I'm going to send my first balkbayan box sometime next month. My sister has a Costco membership so I will go shopping with her. That will also be handy later on when I'm living there and need things I can't find. I need to comb through various threads in this forum where different items have...
  12. Philippines Expat Forum
    One reason I'm moving to the Philippines is that my Canada government pension, although it is tied to the yearly inflation rate, just can't keep up with rising prices, especially food that costs more and more by the month since a great deal is imported. I have to greatly limit the variety of...

    Following the recently announced evidence of a definite link between processed meats and colorectal cancers, will you be changing your diet? I can't imagine life without jamón, chorizo, chargrilled burgers and good old bacon butties, but I might cut down a bit. FYI: Spain has the 17th highest...
  17. Dubai Expat Forum for Expats Living in Dubai
    Hi all, we have our move date (next week) just wondering if any of you bothered bringing over any food items when you moved over? Were definitely not a 'sausage and mash' only type of Brit couple hahah, but I was thinking of packing a big jar of marmite a few boxes or vanilla instant coffee...

  19. The Basement Lounge
    Hi All, First off, I'm not an expat, but I spent a great 4 months in Isan in Thailand. While there, I fell in love with this bottled, sweetened iced tea sold in most of the small convenience stores, as well as Tesco. I was there about 8 years ago, but if memory serves, the tea was called...
