Phoenicia Deli, Houston, TX
Arpi's Phoenicia Deli is one of those really cool places that just exemplify the American Dream.
I started going to the (original) small deli/Mediterranean grocery store in a strip center years ago for lunch. They served good stuff. Judging from the line I would sometimes wait in, I was not the only person who felt that way.
As time passed, I noticed a larger shopping center being built across Westheimer Road. It soon became a large Phoenicia Specialty Foods store with a larger version of the deli in its own separate suite. When they first moved, the line was too long for even me to wait in. I was eventually able to make it there and enjoy a delicious Shawarma (ahhh…).
The interior of the new place has a modern contemporary look but the food is still for real.
Excellent food, good prices, worth visiting!
