Top 10 Foods of 2016

Top 10 List

Any entry on this list would be well worth repeating.

Every Monday, Food of the Week celebrates my favorite dish from the previous seven days. I live in Los Angeles and was lucky enough to travel to places like Japan (Tokyo and Kyoto), Austin, Chicago, Miami, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, and Vancouver. Along the way, I took hundreds of hopeful bites. Look back at my 10 favorite dishes from 2016.

Numbered establishments on the map correspond to information below for easy reference.
