Here is a compilation of comments about specific things expats wish they can buy in Malaysia.
Commenter Nick: Mexican Food: it’s difficult to find good Mexican food in Malaysia. Would love to have a Chipotle in Malaysia!
Commenter Nick: Salad Outlets: it’s difficult to find many places that sell good, cheap salads. These can make great meals for a quick, tasty, healthy lunch during the work week.
Commenter Jill: My list consists of:- Pork sausages (though I now make my own), gravy granules, sugar puffs, Cadbury’s cream eggs, cotton simple non fitted sheets. Actually, it is not so much the items as the places… I miss proper supermarkets where I know I can buy anything and everything, car boot sales that I can mooch around at the weekend and DIY stores.
Commenter Becky: Could do with fewer bolster covers and more plain flat sheets. Also, toothbrush heads for Sonicare electric toothbrushes. Oh, and tomatoes — bright-red, soft-but-not-squishy, flavorful, delicious tomatoes!
Commenter Chris H: Chicken kievs! BSC in Bangsar said they couldn’t find a supplier. BIG occasionally make them but they’re pretty dry (not enough garlic butter).
Commenter Gerty Geerts: The assortment of affordable fresh vegetables is very limited over here and canned vegetables and fruit almost not existing.
