Feta Cheese

Feta cheese is a classic Mediterranean dairy product that is often enjoyed on its own, in Greek salads, on bread, or mixed with zucchini. Depending on where the feta is sourced and produced, the cheese can be made from cow, sheep, or goat milk, or even a combination of the three. Regardless of the animal it comes from, this delicious cheese is a crowd favorite.

Baba Ganoush

This Levantine dish is one of the most well-known Mediterranean dishes to eat in the United States. It typically comes in the form of a dip, served with pita or another kind of dipping bread. Commonly served before dinner as an appetizer of sorts, it usually features tahini, eggplant, garlic, spices, and sometimes yogurt. This tasty cuisine works great as a spread on a sandwich, or you can even eat it with a spoon, all on its own.

Baklava

If you have never tried authentic baklava before, get ready to have your mind blown. This dessert is a traditional Mediterranean food that will have your taste buds craving more and more. Once you open a box of baklava from our Mediterranean grocery wholesaler in San Antonio, TX, you won't want to stop eating! Baklava is made with layers of thin filo dough, which is layered together, filled with chopped nuts (think pistachios), and sealed with honey or syrup. Baklava is so good that its origins are debated, leaving many wondering which country invented the dessert. Everyone from the Turks to the Greeks and even Middle Easterners hold unique takes on baklava. Try each one to discover your favorite!

Most Popular Wholesale Middle Eastern Foods

Fresh, healthy, aromatic, rich: it's no wonder that the popularity of Middle Eastern cuisine and products has skyrocketed in the United States. This genre of cuisine features a large variety of foods, from Halvah to Labneh. If there were one common theme throughout all Middle Eastern food, it would be the bright, vibrant herbs and spices that are used. These flavorings help create rich, complex flavors that foodies fawn over. Typically, Middle Eastern food is piled high for all to eat, with enough food for an entire republic to put down.

Tabbouleh

This refreshing, healthy dish is chock-full of greens, herbs, tomatoes, and bulgur (or cracked wheat), creating a memorable, bold flavor. This dish may be eaten on its own or paired with a shawarma sandwich or helping of falafel. It's best to buy your ingredients in bulk to make this dish because it tastes best freshly made with family around to enjoy. Just be sure to bring a toothpick to the tabbouleh party - you're almost certain to have some leafy greens stuck in your teeth after eating.

 Middle Eastern Market San Antonio, TX

Shawarma

We mentioned shawarma above, and for good reason - this dish is enjoyed by men and women around the world, and of course, right here in the U.S. Except for falafel, this might be the most popular Middle Eastern food item in history. Shawarma is kind of like a Greek gyro, with slow-roasted meat stuffed in laffa with veggies and sauce. The blend of spices and the smoky meat mix together to create a tangy, meaty flavor that you will want to keep eating for hours. For western-style shawarma, try using beef or chicken. For a more traditional meal, try using lamb from our Middle Eastern grocery distributor in San Antonio, TX.

Hummus

Traditionally used as a dip meant for fresh pita, hummus is a combo of chickpeas, garlic, and tahini, blended together until silky, smooth, and creamy. You can find hummus in just about any appetizer section of a Middle Eastern restaurant menu. That's because it's considered a staple of Middle Eastern food that can be enjoyed by itself, as a spread, or with fresh-baked pita bread. Hummus is also very healthy, making it a no-brainer purchase from our grocery store.

Benefits of Eating a Mediterranean Diet

If there's one diet that is most well-known for its health benefits, it has got to be the Mediterranean diet. In 2019, U.S. News & World Report listed the Mediterranean diet as No. 1 on its best over diet list. This incredible diet has been cited to help with weight loss, brain health, heart health, diabetes prevention, and cancer prevention.

Whether you already love Mediterranean food or you're looking to make some positive changes in your life, this "diet" is for you. Eating cuisine like Greek food, Persian food, Turkish food, and Italian food is healthy and tastes great. Even better than that? At Nazareth Wholesale Grocery, we have many staples of the Mediterranean diet for sale in bulk so that you can stock up on your favorites at the best prices around.

So, what exactly is the Mediterranean diet?

It is a way of eating that incorporates traditional Greek, Italian, and other Mediterranean cultures' foods. These foods are often plant-based and make up the foundation of the diet, along with olive oil. Fish, seafood, dairy, and poultry are also included in moderation. Red meat and sweets are only eaten in moderation, not in abundance. Mediterranean food includes many forms of nuts, fruits, vegetables, fish, seeds, and more. Of course, you can find at them all at our wholesale Mediterranean grocery store!

Here are just a few of the many benefits of eating a healthy Mediterranean diet:

Reduced Risk of Heart Disease

Reduced Risk
of Heart Disease

Many studies have been conducted on this diet, many of which report that Mediterranean food is excellent for your heart. Some of the most promising evidence comes from a randomized clinical trial published in 2013. For about five years, researchers followed 7,000 men and women around the country of Spain. These people had type 2 diabetes or were at a high risk for cardiovascular disease. Participants in the study who ate an unrestricted Mediterranean diet with nuts and extra-virgin olive oil were shown to have a 30% lower risk of heart events.

Reduced Risk of Stroke for Women

Reduced Risk
of Stroke for Women

In addition to the heart-healthy benefits of a Mediterranean diet, studies have shown that eating healthy Mediterranean and Middle Eastern foods can reduce the chances of stroke in women. The study was conducted in the U.K., which included women between the ages of 40 and 77. Women who stuck to the Mediterranean diet showed a lower risk of having a stroke - especially women who were at high risk of having one.

1.

Instead of unhealthy sweets like candy and ice cream, try eating fresh fruit instead. It's refreshing, tasty, and often packed with great vitamins and nutrients.

2.

Try eating fish twice a week, in lieu of red meat. Fish is much healthier and doesn't have the unfortunate side effects of red meat, like inflammation.

3.

Try planning out your meals using beans, whole grains, and veggies. Don't start with meats and sweets.

4.

They're tasty, but try to avoid processed foods completely.

5.

Instead of using butter to flavor your food, use extra virgin olive oil instead. Olive oil contains healthy fats and tastes great too.

6.

Try to get more exercise and get out of the house. The Mediterranean lifestyle is an active one, best enjoyed in the beautiful sunshine when possible.

Why Buy Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Products Wholesale?

Buying wholesale and retail are quite different. When you buy products from a wholesaler, you're essentially buying from the middleman between a retail establishment and the manufacturer. Wholesale purchases are almost always made in bulk. Because of that, buyers pay a discounted price. That's great for normal buyers and great for business owners, who can sell those products to profit. This higher price is called the retail price, and it is what traditional customers pay when they enter a retail store.

Spurs 50 for 50, Number 23: Tiago Splitter

This year the Spurs are celebrating their 50th season in San Antonio. There have been many highs and a few lows. One trademark of the San Antonio Spurs has been their culture and consistency. The keys to those qualities lie in their players. Always noted for development as well as being ahead of the curve on scouting international players, the Spurs way has made them one of the most successful organizations of all time. As we look back on the Silver and Black, we recognize the top 50 players in franchise history. Each day, we will move up the countdown.

23 - Tiago Splitter

He only came over to the NBA at 26, took two more years to get a starting job in San Antonio, was sidelined by a variety of maladies throughout his tenure and, as any Spurs fan who screamed at a television between 2010 and 2015 might tell you, was routinely afflicted by an aversion to dunking the basketball. And yet Tiago Splitter earns his spot in the top 50 for his unheralded role complementing a Silver Age Tim Duncan in the frontcourt, as well as contributing to the unique fabric of the locker room on that last great Spurs team.

Originally taken in the first round of 2007, the Brazilian big man can likely be considered the Spurs’ final draft and stash success (for now, at least). In the box score he was a walking 8 and 6, but his high IQ, low-usage play on offense, combined with a great feel for guarding the pick and roll and protecting the rim, allowed him to not only slot beside his Hall of Fame teammates but elevate their play. He’s not the first name you think of when the Beautiful Game era is brought up, but go back and watch the greatest video on the Internet, wipe away the tears, and appreciate Splitter’s ubiquity in the highlights.

Still, much of what Splitter valuable was the stuff that didn’t fill the stat sheets. He rarely chased a block, opting instead for a textbook contest. He made the pass before the pass that set up an easy bucket. His knack for showing and recovering around a screen was a key element of the Spurs’ stingy defense. Whether it was a hard screen, timely rotation or boxout, he was almost always right where you needed him to be.

Splitter’s performance and health peaked just at the right time for San Antonio, across the Spurs’ two Finals runs against the Heat. In the summer in between, the free agent made the decision to run it back following 2013’s disappointment. The 2014 title was redemptive for the team at large, and Splitter’s Game 5 block on Dwyane Wade felt like its own piece of payback after he was famously foiled by LeBron James the previous year.

Next up: the Preacher.

As we look back on the Silver and Black, we recognize the top 50 players in franchise history. Each day, we will move up the countdown.

22 - Terry Cummings

Terry Cummings came into the NBA as the second overall draft pick in the 1982 NBA Draft, nestled between James Worthy and Dominque Wilkins. He earned the Rookie of the Year honors in 1983 as a member of the San Diego Clippers. Although a top player in the league, discrepancies with the team’s ownership led to his being traded to the Milwaukee Bucks just after his second season.

He spent five seasons in Milwaukee before being traded to the San Antonio Spurs in 1989 along with a 1990 2nd round draft pick. In exchange, the Bucks picked up Cadillac Anderson, Alvin Robertson, and a 1989 2nd round draft pick.

In five seasons with the Silver & Black, Cummings averaged 19.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 1.3 steals per game. Teamed up with David Robinson, the Spurs saw one of the greatest ever single-season improvements going from 21 wins in 1989 to 56 wins in 1990.

Staying consistent and becoming a force at the four position, Cummings helped the Spurs rack up back-to-back fifty win seasons and strong postseason appearances.

An injury rendered T.C. out and he never quite got his game back on track. That said, he was able to stay active in the NBA until the turn of the century.

After basketball, Cummings dabbled in music, releasing an R&B album in 2007. He wrote the songs, while singing and playing keyboard.

Terry Cummings has also an ordained Pentecostal minister since 1977 and notably performed the ceremony of Sean Elliott and his wife Claudia.

SAN ANTONIO — A chapter in San Antonio’s history is officially closed.

Several businesses in Alamo Plaza shut their doors for the final time on Monday to make way for something new.

It's a 20-year ride coming to a halt.

“It is sad. It's nostalgic, it's the end of an era,” President and CEO of Phillips Entertainment Davis Phillips said.

The Phillips Entertainment businesses are a staple in the Alamo Plaza.

“The three particular businesses we're talking about, have been in operation for a little over 20 years,” Phillips said.

Tomb Rider as well as the Ripley's Haunted Adventure and the Guinness World Records Museum will all make way for a new Alamo Visitor Center and Museum. On Monday many were taking the walk down memory lane one final time.

“Everyone wants to see the Alamo. So, you want them to come you want them to experience everything that's here, you know, so I don't know what we're going to do. I'm happy that we're going to have a good replacement,” Pearl Alston who is visiting Alamo Plaza said.

“It was a part of San Antonio right for so long so I think it might change. I remember when we would see that man pop out of the haunted the haunted house,” Bethany Segura who is visiting Alamo Plaza said.

As for the 150 workers who will no longer have their jobs Phillips is working to keep them with the company or help them find their next adventure.

“The last two and a half years have been some of the most challenging in our business life, probably for any business, really. Even since it was announced in February that we're going to be closing down, we didn't lose anybody off our team, our full-time team has stayed with us. And we really appreciate them. And they're part of our family as well,” Phillips said.

Phillips also said other businesses in the area like the Visit SA Visitor Center and Jimmy John’s will close at a later date in 2022.

As for the impact the closures will have on tax revenues it's estimated once the Alamo Visitor Center and Museum opens it'll generate $600,000,000 in tax revenues for Texas.

Trade Market Shifts to Russell Westbrook; Can Spurs Make a Deal?

After a long wait, the NBA trade market has become active again. First, the Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz agreed to a trade featuring Patrick Beverley and Talen Horton-Tucker. Then, a surprise blockbuster deal transpired.

The New York Knicks had been linked as the most likely trade suitor for All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell amid the Utah Jazz entering a rebuild. The trade return for Rudy Gobert was heavily predicated on future draft capital, signaling Mitchell will be moved next.

Mitchell ended up instead being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Lauri Markkanen, Ochai Agbaji, Collin Sexton, three unprotected first-round picks (2025, 2027 and 2029) and two pick swaps (2026 and 2028).

With Kevin Durant committed to the Brooklyn Nets once again as he enters the first of a four-year contract, the trade market has shifted focus to Russell Westbrook and the Lakers. Los Angeles still needs to continue to make changes but hasn't yet moved Westbrook.

The Lakers will undoubtedly have to attach future draft capital in a Westbrook trade to not only entice the suitor to take on his salary, but also for the value of the players headed to Los Angeles. The goal for many teams is to receive the Lakers' first-round picks in 2027 and 2029 with as little protections on them as possible.

In any trade outcome involving Westbrook's $47.1 million expiring salary, the trade suitor would be unlikely to actually play him. He would swiftly negotiate a buyout or be sent home like John Wall was by the Houston Rockets as the team prioritizes their young players.

Before Mitchell was traded to the Cavaliers, the Jazz already were linked as a possible trade suitor for Westbrook. Now, they are viewed as a likely trade partner for Westbrook in a deal involving Bojan Bogdanovic as the headliner of a deal.

Utah could include a combination of names like Mike Conley, Malik Beasley, or Jordan Clarkson in addition to Bogdanovic in a trade. Right now, the Lakers have options and the Jazz have signaled they want to send out veteran players in a trade.

The San Antonio Spurs do not have the most appealing of potential trade packages to offer the Lakers. Jakob Poeltl and Josh Richardson are helpful veteran talents for a contender, but each is on expiring contracts. Doug McDermott is signed through 2023-24 but isn't on the most value-friendly deal at $13.75 million per season.

It's no secret the Lakers have an interest in acquiring Myles Turner and Buddy Hield from the Indiana Pacers. However, the asking price seemingly would involve parting with a first-round pick in 2027 and 2029. Given the Lakers' lack of desire to compensate a team for taking on Westbrook's deal, there hasn't been any progress.

It remains to be seen if the Lakers will reach the type of trade agreement they desire in exchange for Westbrook anytime soon. They will need to compensate teams for the talent they are sending them and surely for taking on Westbrook's salary, too. As a result, multiple draft assets of some kind are needed.

New San Antonio bar La Ruina stirs up history, tropical drinks

One hundred years ago, cheap honeys and sweet jams were being sold at 410 Austin Street near downtown. Fast forward to the present and a sweet escape is being sold in the form of La Ruina.

La Ruina, the new concept by Gerry Shirley and Olaf Harmel, former owners of The Modernist, is now open. The owners spent years transforming the storied space into an elevated cocktail experience.

The owners hosted an invite-only grand opening on Friday, September 2. Read below for a sip of what to expect.

What's on the menu at La Ruina

Before Luis Muñoz and Eric Hanken took over The Modernist, the bar was known for forgoing a set menu and crafting made-to-order drinks. Shirley and Harmel's new business does have a specialty drink menu, but it was not available for the opening. Staff were able to stir up a list of orders from patrons who crowded around the polished bar. Mojitos, daiquiris, Old Cubans, carajillos, Cuba Libres, and an unnamed pink drinks with delicate flowers were lined up.

The Old Cuban, a meeting of a mojito and French 75 (my two favorites) was an easy standout. But as the night winded down and ride shares were secured, my friends dared into a wilder territory: shots. Our bartender suggested chichaitos, the ferocious, Anisette liqueur and rum shots my family and I fell in love with during a 2017 trip to La Placita in Puerto Rico. We've been searching for a bar that made them like the Santurce bars for years, even buying the ingredients to make them at home, but still not matching the flavor. The chichaitos can be infused with a mix of flavors, La Ruina made its with coconut. I was won over and fired up a text to the family group chat.

"Be careful with that stuff," my mom immediately insisted.

"What's the bar called? Where is it," my brother asked.

The space

The building La Ruina calls home has a history (more on that later), but it's also incorporating some of the local bar industry history. One foot into the dimly lit space and your eyes are drawn to a massive brass chandelier emphasizing the bar area. Fellow patrons traded trivia about the bar between sips, pointing out that the light fixture was originally part of the decor at Cadillac Bar. The legendary watering hole closed in 2020 after more than 40 years in San Antonio.

While the exterior upholds a sort of speakeasy style, with only green shutters marking the spot for now, the interior is full of details. La Ruina, or the ruins, is the name but the bar aesthetic is a stark contrast. Vibrant bouquets that make summer feel like forever cover tables, couples tucked away in cozy corners, and everyone wanted a seat on the perfectly pink bar stools that were the center of countless compliments.

A patio serviced by an outdoor bar is also in development.

Find it: 410 Austin St., San Antonio, TX 78215.

Before La Ruina

The City of San Antonio lists the address, or the Robitzsch Brothers Building, as a historic landmark. Digging through San Antonio Express-News archives dating back to 1904 show brothers Richard and Otto C. Robitzch (sometimes spelled Robitsch) owned a grocery store in the space.

Ads from the early 1900s through the 1920s promote low prices on everything from Skinner noodles to cheap honey. By 1948, following the deaths of the owners, the grocery store and market was listed as a "must sell." In the 1970s, 410 Austin Street was the home of a stainless steel manufacturer.
