Phoenicia has placed an outstanding grocery sotre experience in the downtown Houston which is spectacular enough for inner city dwellers. Then to my surprise, they also have a very quality restaurant located within the store that offers surprising Middle Eastern fusion delights like a queso different than all others but amazingly good. Lamb sliders, pulled lamb tacos and grilled baby octupus on a bed of lentils and pine nuts gave us a mouth watering diversity of flavors to enjoy.
We did not try the deserts. After seven in the evening the assortment of pastries in the grocery store go for half price and that was just too much to pass up.
Free parking in the garage makes this an experience few can refuse.
