One major thing that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected is our eating habits. Because of the quarantine, we aren’t able to dine at restaurants, celebrate occasions at our favorite places, and even just have the luxury of not having to cook a meal after a long, tiring day.
Admittedly, it can be quite saddening to not be able to eat your favorite non-home cooked meals for almost a year (food can actually trigger happy hormones!). Luckily, celebrity chef and food vlogger Erwan Heussaff has the “Fast Food At Home” series on his YouTube channel where he tries to make restaurant dupes that anyone can try at home!
Read below as My Pope Philippines lists Erwan’s best videos for restaurant recipe dupes.

If you’re unfamiliar with Pancake House, they are one of the best pancake places in the Metro! They serve regular pancakes, but they also have savory and sweet ones like cheese and chocolate marble flavored pancakes, respectively! Pancake House also offers crunchy chicken, crispy bacon, and mouthwatering, filled to the brim hardshell tacos.
And in this episode of Fast Food At Home, Erwan tries to recreate the delicious taco dish that you can only get at Pancake House!

While Nando’s isn’t available in the Philippines, there are people who tried the world-famous peri-peri chicken abroad and it instantly became their favorite. Peri-peri chicken is a marinated chicken served with peri-peri sauce, a hot-dip that originated in South Africa.
