They sell incredible ice cream here. Almost every little store has a freezer full of ice cream. An ice cream bar usually costs around 25 cents. We've been taking advantage of that.
The bread is also very good. There is a tandoor oven very close to our house. I've been trying to replicate tandoor breads ever since I came back from the Middle East, so to have a tandoor bakery within steps of my house is great. A loaf costs 5 som, or about 12 cents. The authors of my favorite flatbread book wrote this article about making your own tandoor bread.
I can get most fruits and vegetables right around my house, except peaches. I bought a kilo each of tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and carrots for $1.25.
I've not been able to find skim or 1% milk, but I hear it's available at some of the big grocery stores. I can get 2.5% instead of whole milk though. The hard cheese costs about the same as it does in the US, although there isn't any cheddar. A man (we call him the ayran man) comes around every day selling milk, sour cream, and yogurt in front of all the apartments. We don't buy it since it's not pasteurized. We use kefir now instead of plain yogurt since I haven't been able to find any here. I miss yogurt. I'm hoping to get starting on making my own again when I have a starter.
We do have to boil all our water, and I also filter our drinking water. It got old quickly, but I've gotten more organized and it doesn't annoy me anymore.
