Here you will find a variety of Cold cut meat, butcher meat, cheeses, sausages, canned and jarred food, nuts, dried fruit, snack foods, candies, chocolate, fruit preserves, noodles, ready-made food, and plenty other items. All international -- European and middle eastern. It's a fun and exciting place to shop and not emptying your bank account like at Whole Paycheck. I get excited to see products I grew up with or when I studied overseas. Such a nostalgic for me personally.

As you walk in the door, wafting exotic spices transport you to another place. Shoppers from around the world search for their favorite feta, olives, wines or bakery delicacies. This Houston gem is like a vacation that continues as you take home culinary delights for friends and family to enjoy!

Phoenicia is a specialty super market with delicacies from around the World (mostly centered on Middle Eastern specialties). I am of Venezuelan heritage and normally come here looking for Venezuelan "queso de mano" and "queso guayanes" and end up buying all sorts of other stuff. Their selection varies so it is not a given that they will have the cheeses I look for, but it's still a nice place to go shopping. The prices are a little steep though, which is why I'm taking a star off my rating. Otherwise, great place if you're looking for stuff from other countries that you can't get elsewhere.
The restaurant is pretty good too, but it can get very crowded especially on the weekend.
