Visited Phoenicia Foods during a recent stay in Houston. Wonderful market with lots of interesting choices. Really nice prepared food selection from sandwiches to hot meals to bakery items. Very nice and helpful staff. Definitely recommend a visit if in downtown Houston.

We were staying downtown and heard much about Phoenicia and not disappointed. Wish there was one near me. Would try to compare it to Whole Foods but it was so much more! Grocery store, gourmet foods, international food, fresh baked breads, cheese, beers and a bar!!!

We love this place. It is a huge Mediterranean grocery store and it has delicious food, fabulous sweets, desserts and pastries. Also great appetizers. Love their kabobs.

Is this an upscale grocery, an urban bar, take out food bar? It's all these things, but mostly this is a fun place to check out. Great drinks are available from the bar, there are hot food counters, a sandwich maker, fresh fruits and baked goods, groceries and housewares. It's fun - and tasty!

This a once in a lifetime experience. So many different types of foods from the hot deli, to the salad bar, to the pizza, and finally the pastries. Great value for the money. I chose to stay at downtown hotels when in Houston so I can eat here. Wish I lived nearby so I could shop for groceries here.

Visiting for Elks convention and walked across the street from the Embassy Suites for food other than breakfast for lunch at 1:30. Blown over by grocery, deli, food, salad bar, and wine selection. Foodie paradise. Made 3 trips in 2 days. There is a reason it is #4 in Houston. If you are at a convention at the big center,... More

Was looking for a grocery story to pick up a few things for a hotel stay for 5 days. Found this store on Google maps and dropped in. Really an amazing store. I'd call it specialty food store. They have a lot of different types of food, from middle east, to european. They have fresh and dried fruits, fresh seafood... More

If you like food, cooking, exploring cultures this is the market for you. It is such fun to visit. There is something for everyone. I had heard about it but my visit topped my expectations. If you have not been able to find something food-wise, try this market. They probably have it. It is just a fun and interesting experience... More
