Anyone out there know what the kosher food options in Trenton, NJ are?

    The world takes, as the bridge says. I've been gone too long to help, sorry! But I enjoy reading you.

        Lakewood is closer than Manalapan, surely?

          Not according to google maps Manalpan is 25 mi from Trenton, Lakewood is almost is 36. In other words, enjoy the fruit platter.

            Ah. In that case, may I recommend the Chinese place at 335 Route 9 South, Manalapan, NJ 07726 (in Summerton Plaza). Cheap and good (typical takeout Chinese). Levy's Pizza is next door if you'd rather milchig.

        Princeton University has a kosher dining hall if you go while school is in session.

        If not, there is a Shop Rite Kosher Experience in Lawrenceville. Shop Rites usually have sandwiches, rotisserie chicken and that sort of stuff and they are located in the Mercer Mall which should be relatively easy to get to from Trenton. (I have been to the one in Cherry Hill but not the one in Lawrenceville.)

        There are also McCaffrey supermarket in both Princeton and Yardley that have kosher products.

        Look them up on Shamash.

        The distances in NJ are not as far as they look. Small towns in NJ tended to incorporate as separate towns where elsewhere they would be neighborhoods of a city.
