Right, hence the mention of UHT, I doubt they would import fresh milk.
I would assume they sell locally produced camel milk. They do sell milk chocolate made with camel milk.

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Armani/Kaf in the Burj Khalifa
Hours: 6:30 PM - 11:30 PM
Menu: https://www.jewishuae.com/media/pdf/1141/etOq11413808.pdf

Rabbi Duchman/Emirates Agency for Kosher Certification (EAKC)

In addition to daily dining service, Armani/Kaf offers in-room dining to Armani Hotel Dubai guests and on Fridays, a Shabbat in a box service, with 24-hour advance orders.
Worth noting - Should make reservations early as they fill up apparently. They do 2 seatings,  1@ 630pm and 1@9pm - if you sit at 7 or 730pm you need to give up your table at 9pm for next set of seating - This is what they told me but will hopefully verify that next week once there

It's a good thing IG has an option to keep it posted in a "bubble" forever - I try to do that for destination reports

Im not sure that were talking about the same thing. Im saying that there are many cholov stam imported products that I saw when looking for non-dairy items. I am not suggesting buying local products.

Reposting from
the master thread and reiterating here as well that at the moment kosher is not so simple and the caterers and restaurants are overwhelmed and can't handle the volume. Many people are stuck without kosher as they didn't plan well.

The Armani needs week or 2 advance booking and they only have 2 seatings 630pm and 9pm

If you reserved 630, they don't give away your table until 9. Ive seen them turn away people while tables sat empty for 2 hours since people didn't show up or came late

Treat kosher is horrible food and there are many issues in terms of delivery as well

Eli's won't take orders they're too busy

There is another guy that claims to be doing food but wouldn't answer his whatsapp message so I can't comment much there

Its unorganized and many people are upset and going hungry

Aryeh Wagner has 2 tons of food in the air for his Habtoor Palace program, I would imagine they will serve outside guests for the right price.

Sure one won't have restaurant meals if they didn't plan ahead, but there are plenty of products to not go hungry. While one can't rely on familiar products and assume they are kosher even if the logo isn't there (many companies have different factories for different markets markets), there are other options. For people not looking to cook and just looking to have basic food for a few days, kosher certified bagels and wraps can be found at Carrefour HYPERmarkets. Kosher smoked salmon like Labeyrie (only unflavored), mayonnaise (OU) or canned items like sardines (OU) are also available. Almond and soy milk, as well as dairy options from imported yogurts to cheese are available. Nestle cereals made in France (some dairy) are everywhere. In the snacking division, you can find ice cream, sorbet, KIND bars etc. all with the OU.
From what I've noticed, smaller stores like Spinney's or Carrefour markets have very small selections which can be discouraging, but one can find everything by going to one or two Carrefour hypermarket.
If one is willing/can cook, the possibilities are endless.

Here's a link to the KLBD, sadly they don't precise where each product is made, so you'd only be able to buy what is made in the UK since the company might have multiple factories: https://www.kosher.org.uk/koshersearch
The Paris Beis Din list is a little more helpful as they add factory codes and locations when needed, although they don't include some products that KLBD does, but it's in French only: https://www.consistoire.org/telechargements/

While I can't compile a comprehensive list of products, I'd be happy to answer any questions.
