Off-the-menu dishes at more than 40 L.A. restaurants: Breakfast nachos anyone?


If you’re a savvy SoCal resident, you know about the animal fries at In-N-Out. You also know about every other secret menu item at the fast-food burger restaurant. But what about a secret menu at Soho House or Plan Check?

Well, there’s an app for that.

It’s called Off the Menu, and it gives users access to secret menus at restaurants in cities across the country, including Los Angeles.

Some of the items are pretty well-known, such as the Jazz Burger at Jitlada, or the smoked salmon pizza at Spago. If you’re an L.A. insider, you’ve been ordering these two favorites for years.

But did you know you could order sauteed breakfast nachos at Bru’s Wiffle? It’s a plate of chips covered in scrambled eggs, chicken, sour cream, avocado and pico de gallo ($12.59). The restaurant also has deep fried churro waffles ($11.50).

How about a fried chicken sandwich at Night Market + Song? Chef Kris Yenbamroong, worshiped for his crispy rice salad, is also making a spicy fried chicken sandwich ($11).

And that’s just the beginning. The app features off-the-menu secrets from more than 40 Los Angeles restaurants, ranging from vegan Lucky Charm smoothies at Earth Bar to meatball subs at Soleto.

The app also has a section labeled “fast foods.” That’s where you’ll find off-the-menu items from Burger King, Arby’s, Chick-fil-A, Chipotle, Taco Bell and others.

There are also secret items from several other cities, including restaurants in San Francisco, Las Vegas and New York.

The app is free to download, and available for iPhone users.
