Arabic yogurt drink
I would like to know where I can buy a large container of Arabic yogurt drink in Montreal (Ayran with salt, yogurt, or called shenina in Jordan). I've see 500ml at Adonis but does it come any bigger than that? Are there more than 1 company that produces this product? Where else can I purchase it? Possibly better priced?
I find them to be good on my digestive system. It helps to settle my stomach when I was travelling overseas.
Just a small grammatical quibble: "Arabic" refers almost specifically to the language, "Arab" would be the right adjective here.
"Arabian" is also another qualifier that is often misused, it designates the people who live in the Arabian Peninsula (who while being the original Arabs are just a small fraction of Arab people).
Back on the subject, it's too bad there aren't any places that make their own fresh ayran like you'd find in Turkey or other parts of the middle east.
Biggest i've seen this is in about 1L (roughly estimating, i dont have a bottle in front of me).
You can find this at middle eastern shops, even bakeries which just sell lamahjoun usually have them.
I guarantee Akhavan has them. I'm surprised you didn't find larger containers at Adonis though...
By the Côte-Vertu metro station, I know there's a Middle Eastern supermarket with a small deli. I believe they've got ayran.
