You can now buy Greggs bakery goods in the capital.

If you’re British, you’ll probably know all about Greggs. From Newcastle? Then you’ll definitely know Greggs. The budget bakery sells all your favourite pies, rolls and pastries on street corners in almost every town and city in the UK.

And if you’re not from the UK, there’s a basic overview for you. You’re welcome.

What we’re trying to say is, lovers of all forms of baked goods should get excited, because Greggs is now available in Abu Dhabi. Well, sort of.

Although they haven’t yet rolled out (excuse the pun) a standalone Greggs store in the UAE, a selection of their tasty frozen goods is now available at Souq Planet in Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Plaza, on the outskirts of Khalifa City.

We have it on good authority that the range includes steak bakes, chicken bakes, cheese and onion bakes and meat pies. Prices start from Dhs15.

It’s safe to say we haven’t been this excited since Marks & Spencer opened its specialty food store in Marina Walk last month.

Time for afternoon tea? We’ll race you there…
