Kamuela, Hawaii, also known as the city of Waimea, is the “paniolo” center of the Hawaiian Islands. One local delicacy is huli huli chicken, which is a barbecued teriyaki chicken. Served with a side of Hawaiian purple sweet potatoes and Hawaiian baked beans (with pineapple chunks in it, of course), this dish incorporates both the fresh flavors of native Hawaiian culture and the smoky flavors of the South. Finish off this meal with some delish haupia, a delicious local pineapple coconut pudding, for dessert. If you miss the flavors of the mainland, there are a number of restaurants that offer burgers, pasta, and other treats. Hawaiian fusion also offers a lot of opportunities to try global foods with island flair.
