Although the city of Lucca is pretty large and full of restaurants and bars for eating, Magyar during the fair of Lucca becomes very problematic (the best places are always waiting list).
The main problem (if we omit the cost) is the waiting list that is created to be able to eat at a certain time; and I assure you wait half an hour or an hour after a tiring day, it becomes stressful! The first tip is to try to eat at times unconventional (or sooner, or much later), if not in some places you can book before; if you’re desperate you can try to travel by the most distant from the fair, and hope to find a good place to eat.
The hours that are recommended are then breakfast around 8, dining out at about 11, snack at 15, dinner at 18-19.
Lately it has also created a problem of quality of food, maybe not so much for the raw materials, but for the working or cooking; There are so many requests that such pizzas become very hard because of biscuits runny. This also happens to sites that have always had a renowned name.
So if it seems that many restaurants are gross, know that it is not primarily their fault, but they are the consequences of an enormous crowd.
Type of Food
The food “national” of the fair is definitely the Instant Ramen, a typical product canned Japanese. At the fair in Lucca is used Australian brand that is one of the best found in Italy. Sure, it’s strange that sell a Japanese product made in Australia, but I assure you it is much better than some other products that you might find in supermarkets. So if you want to make a first experience of Ramen instant or spend very little for a dish that will fill, try the Noodles. (If you want to try instead those typical Japanese (packaged and manufactured in Japan), go on the stand of Japanese cuisine).
Just a little ‘hot water and 3 minutes of waiting, because the dish is ready; However, there will only be offered chopsticks to eat it. So for those who have serious problems, advice to bring a fork from home!
Where do I find the Noodles for sale?
At the fair, there is always the dealer Noodles in the Games, then in Japan Palace is the sale of Japanese food and thus the Japanese noodles. In addition to these two places where you can add the hot water, there are some in the trade show booth selling the packages but not hot water. Obviously to get pour hot water there is a little ‘tail, especially during peak hours.
WARNING: Check the expiration date, especially in small retailers or shops citizens. I had the experience that I have sold a product that was to expire the next day. The duration of these instant noodle is almost a full year, so if you see already this year are much older!
In Japan Town is the very popular Japanese food kiosk ManGiappone; it is useless to remind you that foods are delicious both savory and sweet, but often are not dishes that can satisfy your intake of calories needed to stay all day standing on walking. So Japanese food, apart from the noodles, is considered one the most svizio or a sweet taste, but not a real lunch (because quantity price ratio is not the best). We show, however, a series of whims sold:
The kitchen of the Red Cross (Croce Rossa)
Each year the Red Cross of Lucca offers a small food kiosk fast food for visitors of the Games. This service provides an interesting breakfast with donuts and coffee and a tasty lunch with sandwiches and chips. Obviously the menu and vast and touches every need of the visitors. The Kiosk offers fair prices and quality of the food excellent! Not only that, the queues are quite flexible and therefore does not expect much even for an excellent lunch. The only flaw is perhaps the amount of chairs and tables available, a rarity for the amount of people.
Food Restaurant / Bar
Excellent choice is to eat in a special room (restaurants, but often also bars, kiosks, delis, etc.). There is nothing better than a nice dish healthy with good energy. Sure you will find often the tail, but you can also search a bit ‘more distant from the halls. Remember to view the news group for any offers and check maps via phone.
For the fair of Lucca sprout often small stalls selling food of various kinds, can be found scattered around the city and could move from year to year. They are usually unique dishes or sweets and may be useful for supplies of sugar.
