Need Trenton area Rec’s

Have to make a trip into Trenton. Will have 2 – 3 hours to kill. Any really good places to eat in the Trenton area within ½ hour ride. Please don’t suggest Delorenzo’s for pizza – been there done that. Thanks for any recommendations!!

  1. Here's a very recent thread:

    You could go to Princeton and have steamed buns (aka soup dumplings) at Shanghai Park. While I've never been to the Princeton location, we have been to the original in Highland Park, and the buns are excellent.

    I've also heard good things about Passage to India, in Lawrenceville.

    1. If you're in the mood for Italian, there's always Amici Milano.

      Passage to India in Lawrence is quite good and an easy ride from Trenton.

      Is there any particular cuisine you're looking for? That could help with reqs.

      1. Thanks for all the suggestions. I will present them to my friends, as there are a couple of us going, and see where we wind up. Thanks again!
