“My mother and her sisters continued the tradition of making the family recipe cakes my grandmother made. I loved to smell the aroma of the cakes baking throughout the house. For the rest of my vivid memories, long after the baking had been completed, we had cake for weeks and even months. Good all the way to the last crumb. I remember going to the closet where the cake was kept. There inside a large stainless steel pot, the cake was wrapped in cheesecloth and then covered with kitchen towels. The pot was sturdy but worn. I can remember that one of the wooden grip handles on the pot was broken. Leaving the remaining piece of wooden handle to spin around the screw. As soon as the lid, with a big wooden knob, was opened, the aroma quickly filled the air. It was as a little girl that I acquired the taste of our family’s favorite recipe.” ~ Jeanette Davis
Our Mission: To share a recipe that has been a family favorite for years. Throughout the years it has been shared with close family and friends. I would like others to experience the great taste and enjoy our recipe. It has been in our family for years.

Phoenicia Specialty Foods is a dream that started modestly nearly 30 years ago. In 1983, Bob and Arpi Tcholakian, formerly of Lebanon and of Armenian descent, opened Phoenicia Deli, a 2,500–square-foot Mediterranean-style delicatessen and grocery near Beltway 8 on Westheimer Road. In 1992, Phoenicia Deli rented out a lease space to store the many imported goods the Tcholakians were receiving. Soon, retail and wholesale customers started going to the storage space for a case of their desired hard-to-find specialty items and eventually this grocery section became a small specialty foods market. In 2006, the family further branched out and opened Phoenicia Specialty Foods, a 55,000-square-foot international food market across the street from the deli. The enterprise has continued to grow ever since and carries on with Phoenicia Specialty Foods Downtown.
