Searching for Pandan

0513 update

I found Pandan! well I didn’t buy it but a friend gave me her stash 🙂 She bought the leaves at Karama Fish Market.

This is my final work week to finish a Girly Cake for my friend. And in between finishing the cake I have strong craving for Buko (Coconut) Pandan dessert and Ube Cake. 

Pandan is one leaf that’s hard to get by here in Dubai. Oh so please help me find one 🙂 or a whole plant! and I promise to share my produce.

Hi, my name is Abigail a stay at home Mama of two LittleOnes and currently residing in Dubai, UAE since 2009. This is my little space online where I share activities, places we've been, food we enjoy and snippets of our daily expat life. ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles (family) and crumbs (food).


  1. Panalo! a reply from a non UAE resident 🙂 medyo malayo from our place but I'll ask C to visit the place after his work. Thank you!

    hi there! thanks for visiting my blog. Someone told me you can find it in Choithram in Al Wasl. Di pa ako nakapunta ng uae kaya di ko talaga alam sabi lang ng mga kakilala ko.check mo na lang po. tc

  3. Thanks Arva. I’ve listed the stores mentioned for a weekend visit. A friend also mentioned that Lemon Grass have plants. 🙂

  4. It's sold at the Thai supermarket in Karama for 3 dhs per bag – not sure how much is in a bag though. Give them a call before heading out there to make sure it is in stock..

  5. glad you got your pandan! FYI: was at Sunflower in karama today and they definitely had Pandan and also saw some in LuLu's MOE by the bean sprouts and baby carrots

    Anyone knows where we can buy Pandanus Amaryllifolius (Pandan) plant in Dubai? I want to plant it in my garden.

    • I have bought pandan leaves at the Karama fish market and mostly at stores selling Filipino products like Westzone.
