5 things we liked for Dh20 or less at Thai Trade Expo in Sharjah


DUBAI – Shoppers and investors have until 10pm tonight to visit the Thai Trade Expo in Sharjah to buy Thailand products.

The five-day expo opened at Expo Centre Sharjah on November 21 and offers everything from food items to beauty products.


Here are five things that made it to our shopping cart:


Instant Tom Yum soup

Cost: Buy 2 get 1 for Dh15

Verdict: One pack contains a packet of dried herbs, and tom yum paste. Preparation is as easy as cooking noodles and the soup tastes exactly like those expensive tom yum that you buy at the restaurant! Just throw in 100ml of fresh milk and some fresh shrimps and you’re good to go!

Jackfruit chips

Cost: Buy 2 get 1 for Dh20

Verdict: Who knew jackfruit can also taste good as chips? The delicious chips are thinly sliced and are naturally sweetened. They come in a very attractive gold resealable plastic pack, too. We guarantee that they’re very addictive.

Dried plum

Cost: Dh10

Verdict: Who doesn’t love dried plum? These Thai versions have a chilli kick, but you’ll love them anyway!

Dried mangoes

Cost: Dh6

Verdict: These Thai dried mangoes have a hint of sourness, which adds a kick to the predominantly sweet taste.

Dried pineapple

Cost: Dh20

Verdict: Either they used tiny pineapples or the Thais have found an ingenious way of utilising those pineapple ends with this product. In any case, they’re deliciously brilliant with every bite! JMYDS/Expat Media
