A far better substitution...

I had this idea and hope it works as well in application as in my head. I was having a banh mi from DC Sandwich shop recently, light crisp bread, delicious and wondered why people order from Subway or Quiznos when this is a much better alternative. It also got me thinking about the best eats in some 7-11 comments here (papusas, etc.) and Steve's post about how much better tres leches from Guapos is that most cupcakes that people play a fortune for. I think some people just get stuck on same old, same old and it would be nice to have a resource of alternatives. So, fill in the blank:

When you are in _____________, instead of ___________, go to __________ for ______________.

Let's keep it similar, eg tres leches for cupcakes (like diet advice, have broccoli spears instead of chocolate cake..).
