Phoenicia Deli Moves Closer to Phoenicia

Reopened yesterday at 12151 Westheimer between Dairy Ashford and Kirkwood: Arpi’s Phoenicia Deli, which crossed the street after 27 years to be closer to Arpi and Zohrab Tcholakian’s flagship (and 2009 Swamplot Award-winning) Phoenicia Specialty Foods store. The new 6,000-sq.-ft. space at the front of the shopping center will still feature shawarmas and salads, but mixes in a new Phoenicia-branded coffee house — and gelato, in classic flavors like Pistachio & Orange Blossom and Cardamom Turkish Coffee. A new Phoenicia Specialty Foods location — in the ground floor of One Park Place across from Discovery Green Downtown — is scheduled to open later this year.

  • But will they finally be open on Sundays?

  • What ? a new Phoenicia in Down town? I can’t wait for this, I’m very excited for the new location because it’s going to be close to my home!!!

    I really love this place. They have an amazing variety of olive oil, fresh pita bread, hummus, olives, chocolates, cookies, nuts, and much more.
    My husband went crazy with the beer and wine selection from all over the world … they have really good prices!!!

    They also have this nice olive bar with more than 10 varieties…. I love it. (I’m a foodie)

    Phoenicia has a variety of food from Middle Eastern, Indian, Latin American, and Eastern Europe. What else would one want?

  • ‘What else would one want?’

    How about one in the Upper Kirby/Montrose area?

    Pretty please?

  • Is there a drive-thru?

  • I am so excited about Phoenicia Deli’s new location! I used to be a regular at the old location and would go there just for the shawarma sandwich.

    The new location looks really nice plus I am excited that they are going to have a drive-thru!
