In the culinary equivalent of putting the French pronunciation on Target to yield "tarzhay" or J.C. Penney "Jacques Penné," the blog Fancy Fast Food turns fast food into meals that look better than they taste, for sure.
Tacobellini reconfigure a Burrito Supreme and a beef taco into something that looks like tortellini in sauce. It's a testimony to the transformative power of food styling.
Other fast food makeovers include KFC into chicken chowder and White Castle into tapas de Castillo Blanco. Hey, don't laugh--I compiled an entire cookbook of these in 2005.
For you budding artists and food stylists seeking a unique medium, here are directions from the site for submitting your own extreme haute viandes du junque.

Remember the rules: no additional ingredients are allowed other than a
simple garnish (which won't necessarily be eaten anyway, [i.e.
parsley]), and no Photoshopping other than minor adjustments in
sharpness or color correction. Please submit a "before shot" and photos
of the makeover process as well.
