Taco rice with a seafront view

 

Taco rice is an iconic Okinawan dish that is a fusion of Japanese and Texmex. It is ground beef, cheese, lettuce, and tomato served on a bed of rice.

I stumbled upon this taco rice cafe as I looked for a place to have lunch, and I’m so glad I did. It’s a cozy little shop on the 2nd floor with beach vibes overlooking the beautiful emerald blue sea. There is a small terrace seating area which is the perfect spot to enjoy the meal while taking in the breathtaking view of the ocean.

Customers can choose from a selection of 14 different toppings. Omutaco is the cafe’s original creation which is taco rice topped with fluffy eggs and is one of its popular dishes. I ordered the taco rice with avocado (860yen). The beef was well-seasoned with a generous helping of cheese and fresh, crisp lettuce –Oishi!

 

Sadly, the diamond beach shop where I had the taco rice has been relocated to Onna village next to the Onna village elementary school. The new shop is located on the ground floor and has a modern cafe vibe and decor.
