Hebron Market Coming To the Neighborhood Butcher Shop, Convenience Store Will Open March 1

By Cary Shuman

Yousef Irziqat has been a shining example of an American success story.

Inspired by his brother, Naser Othman, Irziqat, 41, opened Crispy Dough, a popular pizzeria located at 1514 Tremont Street. He has operated the Mission Hill neighborhood favorite for a dozen years.

Irziqat, who grew up in Palestine and earned his law degree at a college in Jordan, will be branching out in the food business soon as he prepares to open Hebron Market, a butcher shop and convenience store at 1522 Tremont St. on March 1. Hebron Market will have Halal-certified meat and reasonably priced, pre-packaged meals.

“It’s been an exciting and busy year so far,” said Irizqat.

Irizqat’s pizzeria has been a gathering spot for students from Northeastern, Wentworth, Roxbury Community College, MCPHS, Simmons and Harvard Medical School and employees of the area hospitals. Crispy Dough is often called upon to cater parties in the neighborhood.

Irziqat expects that his many current customers will enjoy his new addition to the food scene. Hebron Market will offer Halal-certified meat and reasonably priced, pre-packaged meals.

Irziqat said customers will be given a 30 per cent discount on all food items during the month of March.

Hebron Market will be open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Meanwhile, there is happy news to celebrate in the Irziqat home. The family enjoyed a milestone Wednesday when Yousef’s wife delivered a new baby, the couple’s third child.
