Authentic Mexican food
There are alot of great Mexican joints around Trenton these days, and Totopos up on Brunswick Avenue is one of them. True, it is tiny (2 tables inside and 2 more out front), and it is a dive (in the best sense of the word), but the skilled hands in la cocina tell a different tale. When I parked on the street in front and walked in, a telenovela was playing on the HDTV high on the wall, and several people were working behind the counter. I approached to check their trifold menu and engaged the man who appeared to be the owner or manager. He was fluently bilingual making it easy to explain what was available and then how I wanted my Torta Milanesa de Pollo prepared. I took a chair at one of the tables, and moments later my lunch was placed before me. It was an enormous sandwich on an oversized oblong roll, dressed in heavy foil at its waist and showing its internals at its edges. Just take a look at the photos. It was an amazing piece of working peoples culinary art. I maneuvered my jaws for a first bite and attempted to compress the width of this monster to fit more in my mouth. I clamped down full force and cut through its many layers. The flavor of the breaded cutlet, spicy mayo, avocado, tomato, onion, queso and lettuce burst out and had a fiesta in my mouth complete with pinata. It was just an excellent sandwich. Eating half would have been enough for a satisfying meal, but I indulged and ate the whole thing right there. Totopos has been in business for about three years. The family running it is from Oaxaca in southern Mexico. They give this corner of North Trenton another reason to visit along with some of the other great hidden kitchens in the neighborhood. .
Love the soups and the tacos vere full of flavor!!!
As someone who grew up in Los Angeles around lots of good Mexican food, I'd been struggling to find Mexican food in the area that was authentic and delicious. Luckily Totopos was a great find thanks to the recommendation of a friend. It's a small place--only two tables inside with some more outside in front--but the food was delicious. We ordered some simple fare to try--chicken enchiladas verdes and chicken flautas--and both were very good (and cheap!). The salsa used in the cooking did not seem spicy at first, but it builds to a nice kick as you keep eating. I'll definitely be coming back when I'm craving good Mexican food.
Most authentic Mexican food I've found in this area. The flautas and enchiladas verdes were delicious.
Really good authentic food
Amazing fresh food
Great Mexican, hidden gym! Chorizo nachos are particularly good. The caldo de mariscos is fantastic though not always available. The place is very small so takeout is the norm.
