Okinawan Takoraisu (aka “Taco Rice”)

kept bytihleigh

Taco Rice, or “Takoraisu” as it’s called in Japan, is a popular Okinawan dish invented in the 1960s by a Japanese chef who took the idea of tacos, so popular among the American military stationed on Okinawa, and combined it with rice, a staple item in the Okinawan diet. The dish has since become, ironically enough, one of the most well-known Okinawan dishes.
