Tacos-ya’s Chatan location: most welcome!
Many newcomers to Okinawa are surprised to find a prevalence of taco shops. The spicy, crispy Mexican delicacy that is so popular in America took off in Okinawa as well in the ’60s and has been an honorary contributor to the local food culture ever since. Adding an Asian twist to this south of the (U.S.) border classic was the substitution of rice for the tortilla, resulting in the creation of another local favorite, taco rice.
When visiting Chatan, whether you want to enjoy delicious taco flavor with fingers, fork or even chopsticks, Tacos-ya, located just north of the Minato area across from San-A, will fill the need with spicy meat, fresh vegetables and rice or crisp, made-to-order tortillas. Can’t decide between a classic taco or taco rice? Get both in their most popular Taco Plate, which combines a classic taco, taco rice, fries and a large onion ring for just 650 yen.
