I do not consider myself a specialist in finding Russian food in Thailand, or even Habitual products, because it is not really needed. Well, I do not feel longing for all sour cabbage, cucumbers and herring Maybe because more than six months have never lived in Tae? And you just have to stay much longer to start beckoning to the native food— But since we occasionally buy something here in out of habit supermarket or just like that, then some kind of experience is still there is. About this and tell.

If you go to the supermarket and search for something carefully, there are a lot of chances that you can find something. Is not a fact, that you will like the price, but if you just wanted to remember taste, why not buy sometimes. I personally for all my arrivals in Tai did not come up with anything of what is not here, but would love to. Perhaps only pumpkin oil is missing, and This is not for us, but for Yegor. I will go over those points that, like me seems to need most. If you forgot something or wrote wrong, This is discussed in the comments.

Bread is both white and black. But in my opinion, he is not very similar at the familiar Darnitsky or Borodinsky. Rather something resembling 8 cereals or so. Price for a loaf from the oven somewhere about 100 baht. Sold in all major supermarkets, such as Tesco, Big C, Villa Market, Tops Market and so on. Done on the spot and in depending on the particular bakery, there will be different varieties of it. I know that Samui has a small private bakery where it is sold. unleavened bread. There are enough other bakery products here: Cupcakes, croissants, donuts and so on.
Almost black bread
Also there is imported vacuum-packed bread and stored in the refrigerator, the price is about 120-180 baht for a heavy pack. As for me quite tasty, but also not quite right.
Delicious imported bread in a package of 170 baht for 500 gr.
My favorite cupcakes – 50-70 baht
Daily sale of any croissants
Once upon a time, I wrote that cheese is very expensive here, but times are changing. Now I see that he stands, as in Russia. Price starts anywhere from 300 baht / kg in Macro and from 500 baht / kg to Tesco and BigC. And if in Macro there is something to choose from, then in the rest there is no choice very big for this money – Edam, Gouda, Mozzarella. By the way Mozarela in Macro is the cheapest, only it is not classic white and white and yellow solid. All sorts of Gruyera and cheese with mold price close to 700-1000 baht per 1 kg. But in fairness I add, many of these varieties and we are worth the same. Clear, that there is no cheap Russian / Poshehonskogo at 250 rubles / kg, but he as if not very edible. And we bought Camembert for 245 baht one circle 350g, which means 700 baht / kg.
In Macro Mocarela 359 baht / kg, Brie 587 baht / kg, with green mold 476 baht / kg
Mozzarella for 560 baht / kg and Gouda for 540 baht / kg in Big C
Cheese is more expensive in BigC – the price approaches 1000 baht / kg

Yogurts that you need to eat with a spoon are sold everywhere, even in 711 minimarkets, including Activia. They are all local production, but there are more expensive imported. My favorite is yogurt with coconut. And drinking yoghurts are not at all like usual ones. us, although not everyone thinks so. I’m used to thick, like Activia or A miracle, and here are some fruit liquid drinks instead, brrr—

Imported yogurts in large jars
Drinking yoghurt is the best, but still not that
I noticed that all non-fruit yogurts are sweet for some reason, although Classic yogurt should not be as sweet as sour cream. Here is such unsweetened yogurts should be looked for in separate shops. TO For example, on Samui – this is Home made yougurt on Maenam about a turn on Lomprayya pier (50 m from the turn). You can learn the old pickup truck with the words Yougurt, which is always parked on the road.

Sour cream, cottage cheese and kefir
Cottage cheese in Tae need to look for imported. And since he is abroad usually called cheese, the inscription on the can must be Cheese (English) or Fromage (French). This cottage cheese will be similar to curd paste, as if ordinary curd was mixed with sour cream and Mixed with a blender. Sour cream, too, just have to look for it. Called – Sour Cream. Also some yogurts look like her.
Cottage cheese – cottage cheese, Sour Cream – sour cream
Fromage – French curd
Someone wrote to me that I saw kefir in Tesco or Big C, but I did not found. In general, cottage cheese / kefir can be made by yourself, using milk and kefir mushrooms. Actually, in some cities there are shops, who sell it already in finished form.
It seems to be not very necessary thing, but just in case I will write. The most common wheat pasta is there, both spaghetti and horns, prices from 30 baht per pack. Rice noodles, too, by itself present.
All sorts of pasta – from 30-40 baht
What Russian does not like pancakes? So the easiest way to make them out flour, is not it. Flour is sold in supermarkets and is called Bread Flour or Cake Flour. Past it, you can easily buy rice flour and cornmeal. Search all this is necessary in the department where salt and monosodium glutamate is sold.
Wheat Flour – Bread Flour
Rice Flour – Rice Flour
Herring and salted fish
Ready-to-eat herring saw only imported in banks 150 baht. The red fish we are accustomed to met by chance literally a couple of options in the form of cutting 300 baht, that is, also expensive. AT In general, the easiest way is to buy fish and most to pickle.
Potatoes, onions, carrots
Sold everywhere, in supermarkets and markets. Prices in Big C shown in the photo, especially nothing to add.
Potatoes, carrots, onions, zucchini
They don’t drink tea much in Thailand, so there’s no such thing. diversity, like ours, and mostly sold packaged in supermarkets. Argued that green tea is expensive here, but I Found a pair of budget options sold in any store. it green tea with jasmine, the one that I usually drink and always. Tutu It costs around 35 baht, quite a good price. Also in the north Thailand, I bought the most beautiful Oolong at about the same price, it was sold in the local market on the way to the highest mountain Doi Inthanon. I think you can get it in other places in the markets. Tea will most likely be Chinese.
Cheap jasmine green tea for 35 baht
I, unfortunately, do not have photos from other supermarkets, but only from Tesco and Big C, which are in almost any city. What if the city is quite large, then the shops, and hence the import in it will be more. In the same Villa Market there are a lot of things in general, For example, we found our favorite Quinoa cereals and gluten-free products for Egor (somehow it will be necessary to try diet again). But if all the same the city is not very big, then direct road to the small shops of Natural Food, which are in Any resort place where there is a large crowd of Europeans.
Chia and flax seeds in Natural Food at 595 and 240 baht per 500 g, respectively
Linseed oil and sesame in Natural Food at 700 and 650 baht, respectively
Flax seeds are not always found in Big C
Couscous and lentils in Big C
Let me give you some more photos of different foods in supermarkets. Here already everything that is easy, without any prior preparation. Well, maybe only oatmeal will not immediately find. Usually she represented by 1-2 manufacturers and sold where the muesli.
Oatmeal 50 baht for 500 gr
Olives, pickled cucumbers, peas
Normal cow’s milk 40-50 baht / l
Eggs at 50 baht, and there are quail at 30 baht
Twice Ice kvass ad, but not seen on sale
100 grams of normal chocolate costs about 80-120 baht
Well, for those who are too lazy to search for something, invent (cottage cheese, for example), and cook on your own, it remains only to find Russian cafe, where everything is done for you.

P.S. Honestly, for such a billboard on the last I’m a little ashamed of the photos. Like Russian, except for vodka do not need anything. What kind of idiotic image is that which they themselves support?
