There's nothing worse than pining for a single dish all day, sitting down at a restaurant, ordering the thing and being miserably disappointed. We'd love to blame this on someone else. We'd love to feel terribly unlucky about the whole thing, but really, we should have known better.
While we're pretty sure we're all capable of making an amazing version of any one of these things (especially at home, where you can make them however you damn well please), a large percentage of the time, the foods you'll find below are categorically disappointing. We always think they'll be delicious, but in the end these disappointing foods are a mere shadow of what we were expecting.
