“Fun food varieties”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Phoenicia has a varied selection of foods that I cannot find in my midwest grocery stores. I picked up some British tea and spices that taste great and are reasonably priced. The food is tasty and fresh.

“Amazing treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

After a day of business meetings I slipped into what I thought was a supermarket to instead find a dining treasure. Yes it was a boutique supermarket but with incredible selection of Greek food that was some of the best I have ever had. For under $10 you can grab a huge meal, a soft drink from the cooler and enjoy it in one of their many tables as you walk in. Wow the Lamb shank was out of this world and a total treat. Don't be fooled into thinking great food must be eaten on a linen table at outrageous prices. This is definitely a must eat at location.

“Don't miss it @ Houston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

The market bar has nightly specials- cheap, delicious food. But more than that- its' FUN! It's part of the Phoenicia Grocery Market- which has great food, drinks, and international food favorites to go. YUM YUM . Only 2 blocks from the convention center- a block from the park. Do yourself a favor and go- you'll love it

“Excellent Food & Drinks for All”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Are you a vegetarian, vegan, gluten free or no specialty? This is the place for everyone. They have a cafeteria style service bar serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Watch and smell the homemade pitas as they float down the conveyor belt. Do you want to have a picnic in the Discovery Green? Make your basket here. Do you want a healthy breakfast, lunch or dinner that is different than the normal hotel or restaurant food, this is the place for you.

This market has such an assortment of goods. Dairy cases, meat, seafood, deli meats, salad bar, bakery , hot food line and cold drinks. This is the place to go for supplies when staying downtown.
