As evidenced by the obsession with the crazy off-menu items at In-N-Out, Angelenos love a secret menu. But billionaire Lynsi Torres isn't the only one with some tricks up her sleeve. Other restaurants in L.A. have insider-only items on their menus, and they've just been outed.

EaterLA asked some of their readers for their favorites in a recent poll, and a few in-the-know foodies responded.

Some of the off-menu highlights include M Cafe's loaded burger -- which comes with fake bacon, cheese, special sauce, and avocados, and comes with chili cheese fries. Then there's Huckleberry's secret Egg Huck McMuffin, made with a maple bacon biscuit, eggs, bacon, and maple syrup.

Another secret that was revealed was Bottega Louie's secret concierge phone number (213-802-1490), which'll help you skirt the long waits both on the phone with the reservationist and at the restaurant. They also talk about the "the delicious (and off-menu) tiramisu at Cecconi's."

Some of our personal favorite off-menu items are the black forest custard shake at Short Order and the Thai burger at Jitlada. Any items that you don't mind outing?
