This is a can't miss international market in Downtown area. Great diversity of foods ranging from pizza to sandwiches to rice/chicken along with steak and bar. They really had a bit of everything, and we bought a delicious Italian bread here.

Often when traveling solo I don't want to take the time to eat at a restaurant. I look for a takeout place or grocery store. Phoenicia has seating inside and outside, but it is also a grocery store with an expansive deli and bakery. I like to eat relatively healthy, and when you choose prepared food at Phoenicia, you know what the ingredients are. I came away with a small loaf of bread from the bakery and small containers of three different cold salads (tuna salad, zucchini salad, and asparagus salad.) Each one was tasty and unique. I also got fresh pineapple, blueberries and strawberries from one of the two salad bars. They also have an olive bar and hot foods area. Plus MANY options in the bakery. The baklava alone is worth a trip to Houston. The employees were friendly and helpful. If you are in downtown Houston, don't miss Phoenicia Specialty Foods!

An amazing supermarket with a vast choice of any European & Middle eastern produce you could wish for, plus great choice of salads, desserts and hot food that you can even consume in the own restaurant.

How!!! What a store…they have all sorts of prepared foods available, and in particular plenty of Mediterranean options. Their Baba is excellent. They also have a decent bakery. If Mediterranean is not ur thing, they also have lasagna, fish, seafood and other things to choose from.

Phoenicia is an excellent place if you’re in Houston near the convention center. Not only is it a Market with interesting spices, olive oil, wine, pastries, Middle Eastern and Greek food prepared on site; there is a bar and table service in the front and entertainment several nights a week. The people that work there are all friendly, and unpretentious. We were in Houston in July for a conference and must’ve visited the Phoenicia eight or nine times. (try the Turkish coffee and cardamom gelato.)

I was staying at the Marriott Marquis and had enough of their overexpensive and bad food. I just wandered and stumbled here. If you are at a hotel in downtown Houston - this is a must!! Great salad bar. Great coffee. Great snacks. Wide selection of fresh desserts. Sandwiches made for you to go.

This place is awesome. Wish we had one in Austin. I bought so much food to bring home. Hot, cold, olive bar, bakery, meat market, salad bar, frozen foods, dry grocery. They also have a full deli in the same strip center.

Stumbled across this at the right time. We were looking for somewhere to buy some healthier options for breakfast and dinner during our stay. Lots of options, salad bars fresh fruit and veg. Lots of international foods upstairs. We were walking but there is a carpark if you are driving

Make your own salad, fresh and chilled soups, bakery, teas, sandwiches, pizza, falafel, multiple breads and deserts. I'm allergic to way too many things yet I came here three times, at least, during a business trip because I could find something I wanted to eat that fit my dietary restrictions. Eat meat? Don't eat me? You can find it here. ------ Also the staff, the fantastic individuals who work here? They're amazing. I would like to mention two names (and I hope I have the names correct), Julie and Stacy. They work in the bakery area, or at least that's where I interacted with them. They were awesome, helpful, made wonderful suggestions. Thank you!

I live in the area and decided to try the steak night special advertised as the best deal in town for $16.99. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. I got a lackluster salad. Then I ordered my steak medium. It came out well done. They brought me a second steak, but it was inedible . It was so tough, I couldn’t chew and swallow a single piece of it. Probably the worst steak I have ever had. Very disappointing.

I liked this supermarket, it has a wide range of products from unexpected corners of the world. It has an attractive rustic design and they sell souvenirs not normally found elsewhere. The desserts they sell look delicious

Attending a nearby conference, I wanted a few items to keep in the hotel room for quick bites between meetings. This place showed up under "grocery stores" when I searched for it (and yes, it's a great place for groceries), but it's so much more. There are several deli counters, with excellent prepared food offerings, and there are tables available to dine in if desired. So glad I happened on this place!

The prepared deli selections are varied and excellent. Check out the wine cellar (up)stairs. Skip the restaurant if you're vegetarian. The selections there are rather taste-less.
