Maui: Land of fantastic sunsets, fabulous beaches, perfect temperatures, and amazing culinary delights! As those who have visited our wonderful island can attest, a vacation to Maui consists of not just taking in the lovely sights and sounds, but also the amazing fusion of flavors our island paradise has on offer. From Wailuku to Wailea, there is something for every palette to enjoy around every corner. The users of Yelp have yet again recognized this fact, and have voted four of Maui’s most enjoyable restaurants into Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Eat in the US list for 2016! Restaurants contained within this list have earned the coveted “must try within this lifetime.” status within Yelp’s community of fervent foodies; a compliment much deserved by these “must eat” places. So, just who earned the top spots this year?
