Tacos in Okinawa? What a nice surprise!
Many newcomers to Okinawa are surprised to find taco shops. The spicy, crispy, Mexican delicacy that is so popular in America took off in Okinawa in the ‘60s. Adding an Asian twist to this south of the (U.S.) border classic resulted in the creation of taco rice. A special is available, combining a classic taco, taco rice, fries and a large onion ring for just ¥650. Located about 50 feet from Kokusai Street, the Naha location satisfies appetites with spicy meat, fresh vegetables and rice or crisp, made-to-order tortillas. When in Chatan, visit the Tacos-ya just north of the Minato area across from San-A.
