If you thought fast food had to be lowbrow, think again. Not when you can enjoy tapas from White Castle, sushi from Popeye's, or quiche from Burger King. --Randy James, TIME
Looking to impress a lady but can't bare to give up your beloved junk food? [Fancy Fast Food] shows you how, with just the products of your local cholesterol emporium and a little creativity, you can create cuisine worthy of a table at The Ivy. --FHM's Best of Net, Website of the Week
Food porn begets fast food porn, which in turn has come to verge on fast food parody, some of it perhaps intentional. The website Fancy Fast Food actually devises and presents recipes for seemingly refined, accomplished dishes that just rearrange and redeploy ingredients in items purchased directly from, say, Kentucky Fried Chicken. Or Domino's. That chain s American Legends Pacific Veggie Pizza is the entirety of the shopping list for a dish that Fancy Fast Food labels Dao Mi Noh Chow Mein and that, as pictured on the site, looks like something in a proper Chinese restaurant. --Frank Bruni, The New York Times
