“How happy I was, finding some good international food in Krakow. I believe a hummus bar is one of the best inventions ever, and the food at Hamsa Hummus Bar tasted so good!”
In the heart of Kazimierz, the Jewish quarter in Krakow with all its nice vintage boutiques and hidden bars, aromas and tastes are waiting for me – straight from streets of Israel. I really like the casual atmosphere and the Israeli music that’s oozing from the speakers.
The name of restaurant is derived from the popular Middle Eastern talisman that brings good luck and protects houses from evil spells – the Hand of Fatima. This symbol is widely known not only in the Jewish culture, but also in Islam. It fits perfectly into the friendly tradition of eating shared meals.
Hamsa currently consists of two different stylish rooms located within a single building and a large internal garden. I preferred the second room with the bar, it’s very cozy!
