I like to buy my spices from Phoenicia. They have something for everyone. The deli is also great for cold cuts and such. If you like Olive oil they have a nice collection upstairs to choose from.

We always stock up here when in town for a ballgame or hanging out. Lots of fresh food choices, prepared foods, etc. Open every day except Sunday and worth a stop if you need some freshness.

Good selection of food at downtown location plus a wine/snack bar. The west Houston location is the place to go to if you need any sort of middle eastern food or bulk beans/grains/etc.

Wow! This place is AMAZING!! A client of mine took me to Phoenicia and let me tell you, if I worked in downtown Houston, I would eat here everyday. It offers just about every food under the soon...mediterranean, Sushi, American, etc...The salad bar is the best I have ever seen and there is a huge market where you can shop... More

This food store is in the heart of Houston Downtown and it definitely worth a visit. You will find there products from different parts of the world with top quality. I usually go there also to grab something for lunch. A great variety of choices for eat in or take away.
