Food App Off the Menu Gives Diners Access to Under-the-Radar Meals

Launching next month.

Farley Elliott is the Senior Editor at Eater LA and the author of Los Angeles Street Food: A History From Tamaleros to Taco Trucks. He covers restaurants in every form, from breaking news to the culture, people, and history that surrounds LA's dining landscape.

Everyone knows about the not-so-secret In-N-Out menu, but a new food app promises us all that there’s much more still to discover. The Android and iOS app, appropriately called Off the Menu, is letting consumers in on the world of unlisted menu items in cities across America and Canada — and not always at chains.

Yes, there are options like the quesarito at Chipotle, but for Los Angeles alone Off the Menu says users will be able to access in-the-know options for beloved local places like Spago in Beverly Hills, Thai Town mecca Jitlada, Alfred Coffee and more. No word on whether or not they plan on including the Panda Express kung pao quesadilla.

Though it officially launches next month, Off the Menu is live now with some 16 cities and will roll out in more places as they come, with secret details available for bars, restaurants, and cafes alike. You can check out the app on the iTunes app store here.
