    Things you need to know when coming to Trenton:

    It can be a hoagie or a sub. It is not a "grinder". Any other term for the elongated sandwich will only lead to confusion.

    The "Triple-Bypass" - Porkroll, egg and cheese on a hard roll. This is a MUST EAT here in Trenton - most of us have had it at least once in our lives. Many of us eat it pretty often.

    Tastycakes - they're a local treat that is slowly expanding elsewhere. I've heard they even ship as far out as Oregon now! Yay!

    Wawa - granted, this isn't a Trenton-exclusive store, but without the Wawa, many of us would go crazy. It's a convenience store, much like 7-11, but the majority of us will swear by them.

    Circles - we all hate them, but they're everywhere here. The Brunswick (Route 1)Circle. The Whitehorse Circle. You can't escape them.

    Jug-handles - a neat traffic pattern that allows you to turn left across busy roads without actually turning left - you stay in the right lane and follow it around a pattern that resembles a jug-handle (hence the name) and then just cross going straight at the light. Why do we do this? No one knows. But at least you know that most of your exits in NJ will be located on your right. Most.

    Halo-Farm - the largest Micro-dairy in the nation. Good to get inexpensive bread, milk, juice and the like.

    Halo-Pub - a great ice-cream shoppe on the Rt. 33/Nottingham Way split. Ice cream from Halo-Farm is sold here, along with teas and juices. The ice cream here, in my opinion, has never been matched.

    Mastori's - one of the best diners in the nation, located on Rt. 206 (not really in Trenton, but we all know about it). Great for banquets!

    Pork Roll - also known as Taylor Ham, this food is served at many diners in our area. It's round like canadian bacon, and thick, but tastes more like ham. It's great on any sandwich!

    Everyone in this area knows the best place to buy Milk, Juice and Bread.....

    Halo Farms is the smallest micro-dairy in the nation. (I'm not sure how that is defined)
