TRUNCATE TABLE cache_menu;

Probably the fastest and easiest way to clear your cache is using Drush through the command line. You can find Drush on Github. On a Windows machine you can try to use the Drush Windows Installer. For a Windows user who’s local development site has cache problems and Drush is not an option at this time, these few lines could save the day. Other Alternatives for Clearing the Cache if using SQL Commands is not an option for you, or you think it’s too risky can be found on Drupal.org here.

People on Stack Overflow have found various other ingenious ways on how to clear their Drupal Cache, I’m sure some of you might find this useful.
