    Don't head to a restaurant in one of the local hotels. Head to Phoenicia Foods! Here you will find great sandwiches, pizza, a hot bar and other deli foods. Also, there is a large selection of pastries...  more »

    On our 5 day stay in downtown Houston we tried to get sick of going to this place to eat, sometimes three times a day. We just couldn't. The variety of foods and the great taste made us come back time...  more »

    The selection of Mediterranean food is outstanding. Plus the selection of teas, spices, beans, pastas and wines is fantastic. My wife said she would shop there everyday if we lived close. A must stop.  more »

    Such variety! Two floors of goodies and a small restaurant. We passed through dying Sunday brunch and everyone looked like they were having a blast, with live music as well. Too many goodies to list. We got baklava, hummus, tuna salad. Everything was good.

    This place is like a wonderland for anyone who loves food. It's a bit overwhelming at first because there is so much going on (which is awesome). A wonderful employee "Big Jim" saw us looking lost and gave us the rundown, after this we went crazy. Wonderful wonderful wonderful place! Thank you Phoenicia!

    Delicious food from all over the world. Also, the selection is great! The prices are fair, and it's overall a nice place to go grocery shopping for more than just the basics. You can hear live music from the MKT bar. There's a second floor with wine 🍷, a whole wall dedicated to spices, an isle full of olive oil selections, + other foreign foods ^.~, etc If you're a UH student you get a discount 🐾

    We first visited for groceries but also had breakfast while we were there. The breakfast was eggs, cheese, with potatoes and sausage. This may sound run-of-the-mill but the cheese and sausage were fantastic. We purchased the cheddar jalapeno burgers to grill and those were also great. The selection is outstanding and the prices are lower than Whole foods. The one improvement I would request is to have a bike rack installed. We would like to make this a biking destination, but after dealing with the downtown streets in the very "bike-unfriendly" Houston, ended up locking our bikes to a tree in planted area because there were no other options.

    This place has endless possibilities, whether you're looking for a good place to pickup lunch or grab a drink at the MKT bar, I can ensure you that you won't be disappointed. They host several events at the bar on a weekly basis. Also, they have a vast variety of imported good and wine (upstairs). Not to mention the delicious yummy desserts, but one thing I will say is that their coffee is not the greatest. Overall a hidden gem in the middle of downtown.

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
