Even remote areas have great food at this point. Huli Huli Chicken shines near Wailua Falls on Maui.

Every Monday, Food of the Week celebrates my favorite dish from the previous 7 days. I live in Los Angeles, a culinary epicenter, and was lucky enough to travel to places like Baja California del Sur, Hawaii (Maui and Oahu), San Diego and San Francisco. Along the way, I took dozens of tantalizing tastes. Looking back, here are my 2015 Top 10 Foods, which appear in order of preference.
