One sunny Sunday, a friend (Hi Rebekah!) and I had decided to have a Girls Day Out at Depot Island. We’ve already tried a few restaurants in the area and decided that we should try something new. We glanced over the Depot Island map and saw “Tacorice Cafe.” Sounds good! And who doesn’t like taco rice?!
Taco rice is one of Okinawa’s most popular foods. It is a mixture of taco, brought by the Americans, and Japanese rice. At this restaurant, you will find several variations of taco rice with different types of topping. Tacorice Cafe is best known for their “Omutaco,” which is a fluffy omelet served over the taco rice.
I ordered the taco rice with bacon set, which was absolutely delicious! The set included spicy fries and a drink. There’s different variations to the set too. You can choose from regular fries or onion rings also. The dishes are inexpensive and will definitely fill you up. So, the next time you’re at Depot Island give Tacorice Cafe a try!
