Adult Harder: Unlock the Secrets of Secret Menus That are Secret

Pssst. Hey, you. Do you like food? SHHHH! Not so loud! We're talking secret menus on the podcast this week...we're giving a whole rundown of who's who and what's what in the dark, seedy underbelly of black market foodstuffs, including a whole segment on calming yourself down because what you probably think is a secret menu isn't actually a secret menu. Then we open the kimono on a few honest-to-goodness secret menu items in Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York, and then we're joined by Austin, Texas food blogger Emily Teachout, who schools us real good on why people love secret menus, and who also gives us the lowdown on the best kept secrets of the Austin food scene!

Hungry for more? Of course you are! Check out Emily's Instagram and Twitter (though Emily made it very clear that her Instagram is VASTLY superior to her Twitter, so if you have to choose one, you know what to do), and her wonderful blog is available at A Time to Kale!

And hey, if you want to get down with the magic of Torchy's Tacos, click here for a shot of something absurdly delicious that isn't technically one of their secret menu items, but it's a monthly special that you can only get sometimes, and dios mio, is that a spicy Thai beef taco with crushed peanuts?!?!
