What food from home are you missing on your expat adventure?

“You know what you guys don’t have here..?” – a question that still rankles me to this day and it is a common one asked by many an expat or traveller when abroad. I get it, when you’re abroad you miss your home comforts; I for one miss a bacon and black pudding butty, but I’m not about to pack my bags for home any time soon. You just need to accept the cultural and culinary differences of your new home.

Sometimes though, certain foods are unavailable due to a nationwide ban in certain countries, often for rather perplexing reasons. So expats beware – below are some homely treats you may not be able to indulge in if you move to certain expat destinations!
