Okinawan Takoraisu (aka “Taco Rice”)

“Takoraisu” (Taco rice), 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 one of the most well-known Okinawan dishes. Its popularity has also spread into other parts of Japan. . . . looks good to me!
