Shah's Halal Food Is Opening in the Former GG Pizza Company Space in Walpole

A group of Middle Eastern restaurants whose roots are in New York City has expanded to a second location in the Greater Boston area.

According to a tweet from @JeremyKrantz, Shah's Halal Food is getting ready to open in Walpole, taking over the space in the Walpole Mall where GG Pizza Company had been, and before that, a location of Papa Gino's. Based on the other shops, expect to find such options as gyros, a variety of items over rice (including chicken, lamb, and falafel), salads, sandwiches, pita with hummus, baklava, and more, using 100% certified halal products.

The new eatery joins another location in Boston's Fenway/Back Bay along with a number of others on Long Island, north of New York City, Connecticut, New Jersey, and elsewhere. (A handful of Shah's food trucks and carts can be found in Queens and elsewhere.)

The address for Shah's Halal Food at the Walpole Mall is 90 Providence Highway (Route 1), East Walpole, MA, 02032. The website for all locations is at
