I have found several great restaurants in the Spring/Klein, Tomball area, but have only found one that had a market, Zumani, and the market was not impressive. Love the beef/lamb shawarma though! Anyon know where can I buy Halal meats and spices in N Houston?

    Have you been to Phoenicia? There are also halal butchers on Hillcroft - Jerusalem Meat Market is a big one.

      I read about Phoenicia on other posts, but it is too far from me. Guess if it is the best I might just have to make the trip.

      I don't know anything about your area but here is the most comprehensive listing of Halal restaurants and markets I know of:


      It probably doesn't list everything but I hope it helps.

      Down in my part of town (SW) Halal Meat Markets are very common.

        Thanks brucesw! I checked this site and searched by zip code and all I got were H.E.B's. LOL! The link you sent was a more thorough list!

          forgot to mention that the HEB in Pearland sells a brand of halal chicken which is far better than the regular brand of chicken they sell.

        There is a new place, just opened. It's at the intersection of Spring Cypress & Old Louetta Rd...not sure of the name though. It's in the same center as 'on the rox' sports bar. I have not been able to check it out yet.

            It is not Zamani. Zamani is at the corner of LOUETTA RD. and Old Louetta. If you drive from that restaurant all the way down Old Louettta, past the Mosque, you will hit Spring Cypress Rd. It is at *that* intersection, as I said above.
