The Best Falafel Wrap in Krakow, If Not The World
I’m not one for food blogging but this one dish has caused me to write a post all about it. There are no affiliate links, no paid ads or any kind of sponsorship here. This is just my love letter to the best falafel wrap in Krakow, if not the entire world.

Where can you get your hands on this falafel wrap in Krakow?
Like most of the greatest food in the world, it comes from a humble place. There are no slate plates with drizzles of condensed stuff splattered around. No waiting staff who hide in the shadows and suddenly appear at the sight of a single crumb on the ironed and pleated table cloth.
None of that stuff.
The best falafel wrap in Krakow is available from a food stall in the buzzing Plac Nowy in Kazimierz. A food stall named Sham Falafel. Don’t be fooled by the pics on that link. There is no indoor space to eat. There are two little wooden tables out the front and that’s it. But most people are eating on the go.
What’s in it?
Now to the good stuff. What’s in this magical falafel wrap? You get three freshly fried falafels, pickles, salad, hummus and tahini. The one ingredient that takes it to the next level, though, is pomegranate seeds. All sounds simple, but the way the guy puts it together creates one amazing meal.
My personal preference is to have it medium spicy. It still has a hell of a bite to it, so I was always too scared to go spicier.
How much does the falafel wrap cost?
Another big plus point is the price. This falafel wrap is yours for just 16 PLN. Combine this food with a trip to one of Krakow’s many cheap bars and you’re well-fed and having a great night out for less than €15.
There are plenty of other great food spots around the city. None of them compete with Sham though.

Want some accommodation tips?
If you’re on the lookout for some tips about where to stay in Krakow allow me to give you my three budget-based recommendations.
1 – Five Star Fancy Pants
If you’re feeling lavish then check out Hotel Pod Roza. Rooms are usually over £130 per night, which I know is high, but hear me out. If you’re after something extra special and can afford it, you won’t regret treating yourself to this hotel in Krakow.
2 – Above Average Joe
If you prefer to place yourself in the high to middle range you should head to Hotel Polski Under the White Eagle. This place is usually about £75 per night but if you want some 4 star luxury in the heart of the Old Town, it’s a winner..
3 – That’ll do nicely
If you’re planning on spending most of your time in the city and just want a clean room with private facilities, Hotel Jan could be for you. Rooms are often available from around £50 per night and you couldn’t ask for a better location in Krakow.

About the author – The Sketchy Traveller
I’m not really a stickman, but it seems that I like portraying myself as one.
I’m an English guy who’s been travelling since 2017. I was never good at taking photos, sketching just seems to work better for me, and in my opinion, why do you want to see other people’s 4K videos and pictures of the world? Surely it’s better to see it for yourself. You get in touch through the contact page or Instagram.
I look forward to hearing from you.
