Secret Eating Society's Offal Tacos at Maker Faire

Offaly Good Secret Tacos


I spent a good chunk of this weekend geeking out with geeksugar at the 2008 Maker Faire. While there I noticed a booth called "Secret Eating Society" and told geek she'd know where to find me if we got separated.


The Secret Eating Society is a group of Bay Area foodie hipsters who are putting out a quarterly journal of adventurous eats. (There's no word on where you can buy the journals, but you can send them an email and I'm sure they'll let you know.) They also have events around the area, including this booth at Maker Faire. Their booth was selling offal tacos — whole roasted pig and braised lamb cheeks — as well as hibiscus-mint coolers.

To celebrate the fact that Cinco de Mayo was just around the corner — not to mention the fact that I actually love weird meats — I ordered one of their tacos. And as much as I hate to say the pun you're all thinking, the braised lamb cheeks taco was indeed "offally" good.

So tell me, what do you think of a secret eating society? Would you join if it was in your area?
