Zaina Market - Middle Eastern Super Store on Fondren!

 Phoenicia is a Houston treasure and has helped create an awareness of the amazing food of the Near East and Middle East.

A new kid on the block, and a store that blew me away is Zaina Market at 2735 Fondren. A store that you must go to visit as soon as possible.

There is a fresh produce section that includes shelled walnuts and pistachios. 

There are aisles upon aisles of the latest and greatest food products from this area of the world. And there is a meat section, and a bakery. They'll even make a pizza for you if you ask the baker.

I'll let the photos give you a taste of the place.
