The actual city of Nasca gets a lot of hit-and-runs. Tourists stop by on their way to peek at the ancient lines, stay a night in town and pick up their trail the next morning. Although the town has adjusted to the high influx of tourism, there isnâ€™t an abundance of restaurants. That said, the available eateries do have character.
The main market throbs with activity along Lima, between Grau and Arica (daily 7 a.m.-7 p.m.) Nearby is Supermarket Raulito (Monday-Saturday 8 a.m.-10 p.m., Sunday 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Grau, between Bolognesi and Lima). Another market, much larger and more rustic, is one block from the Plaza de Armas, on Callao. The cheapest diners in Nasca line the east and west sides of the main plaza. Nasca has no vegetarian-only restaurant, but many eateries do offer meatless dishes.
