Best Restaurants for Secret Menus in Toronto

Many fast food chains have a secret menu – Burger King, Chipotle, Starbucks – but right here in our midst, Toronto restaurants have been serving up menu items that aren’t widely known to the public. Perhaps the most famous of the bunch is The Burger’s Priest, with their hush-hush menu that’s only available after you answer a skill-testing question. Once you’ve got it right, you’ve gained the right to order over 10 items.

Salad King

1
340 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M5B 1R8

The Thai Islamic Noodles - stir-fried noodles, heaped with veg, shrimp, chicken and panang curry - were once a special at the old location, but are now available if you’re in the know.

Cut The Cheese

2
2901A Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M6P 1Z1

This Junction cheese-centric spot offers four items on their hidden menu including the Cocka-Doodle-Moo Mac'N'Cheese ($11.25) with roast chicken, candied bacon, caramelized onions, leeks, hickory sticks, and Emmental.

New Sky Restaurant

3
353 Spadina Ave, Toronto, ON M5T 2G3

If you’re a regular at New Sky, this one might just blow your mind. There’s a Spanish menu available on the down-low called "Chifa" that offers Peruvian and Chinese items such as Carne Con Pina, Chuleta Salsa Kentou and “Delicias de Mar.” Going out for Chinese takes on a whole new excitement.

Barsa Taberna

4
26 Market St, Toronto, ON M5E 1M6

Pinchos or pintxos are bite-sized snacks that are enjoyed in tabernas (bars) in Spain over drinks with friends and family. Fun and festive, pinchos are an addictive way to enjoy happy hour. And while you’ll never see them on the menu at Barsa Taberna, they’re available Monday to Thursday, 4:30-6:30pm - you just have to ask. The ingredients are inspired by the season and are selected from The St. Lawrence Market, just across the street.
