Secret menus are the foodie equivalent of Members Only jackets: you feel special just to know about it, you don’t even have to indulge in it. My little brother is all about the Pink Starburst smoothie at Jamba Juice and I like a Flying Dutchman that gets it done without the buns, hun. What, you don’t know? Pfft. Two meat patties with two slices of American cheese between them, a top-secret part of the In-N-Out secret menu.

I got word from the fine folks at BlackboardEats that they have partnered with Betelnut to offer a super special and secret menu.

Here are the details:

Chef Alex Ong created four offal-ly good dishes

Crispy chicken liver, black pepper sauce, $9.88
Cured lamb tongue, galangal, lime, crispy taro, $11.88
Salt-and-pepper veal sweetbread, $12.88
Fish head tamarind curry, $15.88

This fish head curry is so rare that it is rarely seen outside of Malaysia and even the secretive Michael Bauer wrote about it.

So, how do you get in on the secret? It’s easy, go to http://www.blackboardeats.com/san-francisco be a member (for free) and get the code (for free) but here is the real exclusivity: you only have until 2pm on March 9th. There’s a countdown…..get on it……

Side Note: Here’s a joke that reminds me of “Secret Menus”

Q: How many hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

A: It’s like a really obscure number, you wouldn’t have heard of it.
