So all I wanted was rice noodles. Quarter-inch thick rice noodles – to be exact. Last time I bought them in Carrefour and saw a whole boxful in the Al Maya market just downstairs from my apartment. Should be as easy as buying oh, rice perhaps?
Well, I don’t know what’s worse. Driving to 5 different grocery stores in far reaching parts of Dubai and not finding any rice noodles at all…….Or going to the Waitrose by my house, and almost (almost!) scoring rice noodles only to notice that instead of plain…they sold only CARROT, SPINACH, or PUMPKIN flavor. WTF!?!
I kid you not. You can see the proof for youself in the photo. I think at this point I started hysterically laughing/crying and my husband had to drag me out of the store to avoid any potential embarrasment to himself.
