Mi Tierra

Earthy Guatemalan (Mi Tierra Restaurant)

Mi Tierra is another of the many outstanding Guatemalan restaurants in the City of Trenton, serving its burgeoning Hispanic population. Tierra stands apart because: 1) the food is well prepared, perhaps half a notch better than typical and 2) the decor is better than most. While not fancy by any means, it’s a pleasant place to eat, even if you do need to ignore the Mexican soap operas blaring from a TV set.

The New Kid Grows Up (Guate Linda Restaurant)

Prices are incredibly reasonable. The food, including the tacos, tostadas, and several of the meat platters is very good. Note, this is a dive. Clean, friendly, but still a dive. English skills of your server are likely to not exist, so if you don’t speak Spanish (like me), be prepared to puzzle out the menu on your own, and order via sign language.

Tres Leches, Tres Leches, Tres Leches (Mariachi Grill)

Mariachi Grill (not to be confused with El Mariachi) serves Tres Leches, a fabulous dessert made from sponge cake and traditionally three different kinds of milk: whole, condensed, and evaporated (plus a whipped cream topping). It’s the best I’ve ever had. And I love Tres Leches. For me, there’s no more to be said.
