|Taco Rice Bowl 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.|
