Red face food shopping in abu dhabi

Hi Every1

My husband is all set for his move, we are to follow the latest end of june begining july. I know it may sound silly but whats it like there in abu dhabi for food shpping and where is the best place to go? As I already know there are no tescos or asdas or sainsburys, what is the equivelent there? Whats the average shpping bill for a family of 3-4 pple? Thanks in advance

Abu Dhabi Coop, Emirates General Market, Spinneys and of course Carrefours are the main ones. All have their strengths and weaknesses but Spinneys is bl00dy expensive.

3/4 people shop 150-200 dhs
