Sharjah Blue

A new name in the world of smelly cheese! I discovered this at Geant about a week ago. They have a fairly splendid cheese counter there, but I was looking for Bleu D'Auvergne and they didn't have any. But I spotted this thing called 'local cheese wheel' - it contains good old penicillin roqueforti and is made in Sharjah. So it's a whole lot cheaper than imported cheese, and I have to say it's pretty tasty.

One thing you can never really accuse most local cheese of is having an adundance of taste. We're talking about things like halloumi and roumi here - if they taste of anything at all, it's salt.

Excellent..!

Now if only there was a local drop to go along with it LOL

Ah well, I'll have to go to MMI and scan their "imports"

A better bet is to take a trip up to Umm Al Quwain to the Barracuda. They have the best range of imbibables in the UAE. Including some fairly local stuff - arak from Lebanon, wine from Jordan and other surprising places. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on dome KEO beer from Cyprus, but I haven't seen it here yet.

Ah yes Barracuda, haven't done that in awhile and with Summer here, now's a good time to stock up on 'pool-side' supplies ;)
