    Have you ever tried to duplicate a restaurant / fast food item at home? What item was it?

    How did it turn out? Worse, equal, better?

    Yes, I have tried to make my own Nandos chicken with their sauce as well but it didn't taste the same hmm

    I needed to probably bbq it as well to give it that flame grilled taste...

    My 7 year old sister once asked me to make a "crabby patty" like on Sponge Bob Squarepants.  Needless to say, I didn't even attemp it!
      I have however, tried to duplicate Red Lobster's cheddar biscuits.  They were fine, but not near as good.
      I had more success with the  "Cocacola Cake" from Cracker Barrel.  It is delicious!

    We have a little deli in town that makes the greatest breakfast burritos.  We have tried to make them at home - they were good but still not at great as the deli.

    Last Summer, I made the Cheesecake Factory New York Cheesescake from a recipe that I found online and it was very, very close to the real thing.  I was very impressed but it was huge!  Next time I will use the half the amounts.

    Chipotle guacamole!  They have the recipe on their site actually, http://www.chipotlefan.com/index.php?id … le_recipe, and it tastes almost exactly like theirs, but even better because you can customize it to your own tastes!

    Sure, but with healthier modifications. I ate chicken fried steak on occasion at a few restaurants (T-Rex's is the most recent). I'd duplicate the recipe, but fry the steak in a tiny bit of oil and bake to finish. Not close to the real thing, but healthier!
