Travel the World Without Leaving Trenton


Trenton is home to restaurants with authentic and diverse cuisines hailing from 15 different countries. In an effort to encourage dining at the many unique restaurants across our Capital City, the City of Trenton launched the Trenton Passport Competition.

Here’s how it works:

Eat at as many of these restaurants as you can between now and the end of March. Each time you eat at a restaurant from a different country, post a selfie at the restaurant on the STAMP PASSPORT HERE thread at the Trenton Eat Local Club FB group. Post the restaurant name and the country it represents as well as show you and your delicious food in the picture or video.

The first person to go to all 15 countries (as determined by the time of their posts on STAMP PASSPORT HERE) will be crowned The King or Queen of Trenton Cuisine. They will also win a $100 gift card for the Italian People’s Bakery.

All contestants who finish all 15 countries will be hailed as the King or Queen’s court and given all rights and admonishments customary with such a prestigious title.

Here are the countries and their restaurants!
