    Secret Menu Items

    Post  Joanna Shen on Sat Nov 07, 2009 2:48 am

    Lunch, the time of day where, for one glorious hour, wean stuff ourselves with all the delicacies the world (or Arcadia) has to offer. We hear about the “secret” menu from In-N-Out and such artery-clogging delights like the Flying Dutchman, two pieces of sizzling meat with two pieces of melted cheese slathered in between. The White Gummi Bear option at Jamba Juice is not a surprise seeing as many of our peers regularly order the flavor. But, is there anything that lies below the surface of the menu and public knowledge? More than we can possibly imagine. From miniature coffee cups to extra hearty sandwiches, the list of secret menu items most of us are not aware of is sure to please the adventurous side in all of us.
    Tucked within the Hastings Village Plaza on Foothills Ave., Chipotle is the Mexican eatery nearly everyone craves and loves. Many of us stuff our bowls or burritos with the usual fillings, insistent that our mixture of vegetables and salsa is indeed the only combination that will please our senses. Customers often fail to recognize Chipotle’s policy that if our taste buds desire it and the food item is available, they will gladly make it for us. Tested items include nachos, quesadillas, taco salads and a variety of other Mexican treats. [Insert Quote Here] If their resources permit it, we can order it.
    Recognized as a healthful smoothie chain store, Jamba Juice’s menu can only offer the usual fruity concoctions such as Banana Berry and Caribbean Passion. Hidden flavors, however, come by the dozens. Word has it that Jamba Juice caters to the sweet tooth as well, offering flavors like Strawberry Shortcake, Sourpatch Kid and even the questionable PB&J. “I usually get the White Gummi Bear smoothie, but seeing as there are so many choices available under the table, I’m going to try some new ones,” junior Celeste Cheung commented. Such flavors are often regarded as sugar-friendly and unhealthy, forcing Jamba Juice to keep them off the menu but alive through word.
    Sometimes, one patty in a burger just doesn’t cut it when we’ve skipped out on lunch and endured practice after school. Available at select Wendy’s, the monstrous hamburger known commonly (and nauseatingly) as the Meat Cube, packs in not three, but four patties in between buns. Also known as the Grand Slam, this hamburger is sure to satisfy even the heartiest of appetites, leaving us with bellies “so full that lasted me until the middle of the next day” senior Tu-Tram Nguyen said, “It is truly a challenge.”
    With the workload intensifying and the teachers getting stricter, sometimes we just a need a quick fix of caffeine. If Tall, Grande, and Venti at Starbucks are too large to finish or expensive to buy, we can always opt for the Short size. This simple and adorable cup of coffee is sometimes just the right amount of coffee at a wallet-friendly cost. Even though Starbucks does not advertise the Short size on their menus, most stores do offer the option.
    Now that we are more informed of the secrecy of chain restaurants and gained some knowledge about how much they’re hiding from the consumer public, we are now part of the elite few that can boast of the endless possibilities not on restaurant menus. Let the menu not limit our creativity and our search for bigger (or smaller) and better delicacies.
