We'll admit it: We’re not very good at keeping secrets — but it seems San Francisco's eateries are. Rumor has it they've been harboring some seriously delectable bites on the down low, which filled us with all kinds of curiosity. What? And, where? Just how delicious? So, to get the inside scoop, we played hungry detective, stepping out in search of those sneaky eats. And, after much hunting (and tasting), we can confidently say: mystery solved.
Since we can't keep anything from our readers, we're clueing you in to all of the clandestine creations, too. Ahead, we rounded up 11 covert dishes and sips that you’ll be tempted to keep all to yourself once you’ve had a taste. (Though, we highly suggest you spread the love.) From a sweet cocktail that comes with a smoky surprise to a burger smothered in a special Caesar sauce, here’s all the hush-hush we can’t help but blab about. Click through to see all the goodness — and tell ’em R29 sent you.
