A couple of weeks ago, a few Houston bloggers and I enjoyed a night out at MKT BAR Houston. If you are from the area and have heard of Phoenicia Foods then you know what a treat this was! We started out the night with a tour of Phoenicia Foods by the owner herself and got to sample several different greek appetizers that left me wanting more! If you have not been to the store, you are missing out on an incredible experience. The store alone is a sight to see with it’s impressive grocery selection, delicious ready-made food, and the pita conveyer belt that runs the length of the store! I felt like I was at Willa Wonka’s Chocolate Factory with everything there was to see and taste!
After our tour of Phoenicia, we were greeted with several different refreshing, Summer cocktails. It was a close call but two drinks stole the show. The Melon Cooler which features prosseco and their house-infused watermelon syrup, and the Splish Splash Cocktail that features dill infused agave nectar, pinot grigio and strained cucumber.
While there was not one thing I tried that I didn’t like, my favorites included the meat and cheese tray, Roasted Chicken entree, and the Veg Out Pizza.
Summer Cocktails you have to try! From left to right: Melon Cooler, Ginger Blossom, Grapefruit Rita, Champagne, and the Splish Splash. I’m already planning my next ladies night just thinking about them!
If you are like me and like an excellent meat and cheese tray selection to go with your evening wine, look no further because I have officially found the best place in town for you to go that won’t break the bank. Charcuterie and cheese plates are only $9 on Wednesdays and select bottles of wine are half off!
The Half Roasted Chicken dish made me nostalgic for a delicious home cooked meal. The chicken was prepared with olives and lemon and served with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. YUM is an understatement!

Last but not least, my absolute favorite! My mouth is seriously watering as I write this because it was THAT GOOD. A pizza that has goat cheese, pesto and brussel sprouts people. I repeat goat cheese, pesto AND brussel sprouts. I am not kidding when I say this is hands down the best pizza I have ever had and will be back regularly just to get this!
The dessert and coffee selection is also something that should not go unspoken as both were just as amazing (if not more) than the food! The Apple Baklava and snickerdoodle gelato is a must try!
