Does learning how to cook something "ruin" you for ordering it in a restaurant?

I've always loved Chinese food, and about a year ago I decided to try to learn how to cook some basic dishes. Well, it turned out I enjoyed this and was able to duplicate many of my favorites. Now I tinker them to get them just how I like them, and bit healthier to boot, and I always have basic Chinese condiments at hand. So today, as I passed by what used to be my go-to Chinese restaurant, I realized I haven't gone there in a long, long time, and, weirder still, I have no desire to!

Same goes for many things I make myself (especially baked goods!) So, have you noticed this about yourself? What will you never order out because you know how to make it yourself?
