Wendy also recommends ...

More things I think should be even more popular than they are ...
 
The Elbow Room - My all-time favourite place to have breakfast (or brunch or lunch).  I recommend it to everyone who goes anywhere near Vancouver in Canada.  The most fabulous food (predominantly breakfasts, which is also my favourite meal to have out), great location and a good dose of abuse with your meal.  Who can complain when your dish comes with a side of wisecrack?  Also, what can be wrong in the world when your meal sounds like this: " Two poached eggs, sauteed spinach, bacon, avocado and blue cheese on a sour dough muffin. Topped with hollandaise sauce."?  That's the Brett Cullen, my usual.  Sublime.  AND you can get it with hash browns!
 
Göreme Restaurant - The coziest place to eat great food and listen to live music in Cappadocia.  Low tables with comfy cushions, a stove to keep you warm during the cold nights, good advice about the area and impressive eats (including the famous "Desti (Testi) Kebap" - cooked in clay pot that they break at your table to serve).  The website is currently under construction but hopefully this will change soon.
 
Crocs - My absolute best investment in the last few months.  These shoes are made of some spectacular slip-resistant, ultra-light, non-marrking, anti-bacterial, orthotic, shape-moulding, amazingly comfortable material.  And they look funky and come in some fabulously stylish colours.  They have been perfect for waiting tables, bush walking, river fording, travelling, showering and every general use you can think of.  I recommend them to anyone for anything, but they would be perfect for use in kitchens, restaurants, hospitals and boats.  Who knew a boat shoe could actually be cool?  I am going to get some black Aspens as soon as I can for restaurant use.  At the moment I have the bright orange Beach model.  I love them.
