One of the coolest things I learned on Chowhound (the Chicago board): many thai and vietnamese restaurants have "secret menus" filled with stuff that they assume the general public will not want--but will cook for you--if asked. Nifty stuff. There was a professor at the U of C who published a book on how to read/interpret Chinese symbols on restaurant menus too, which I thought was fun.
