I have been dreaming of Chipotle’s since we moved here. Then just the other day I saw an ad for “Tortilla Factory.” I was super stoked to arrive today with my kids in tow. We were greeted by the aroma of sassy Mexican food and super friendly staff. The owner/manager is such a nice man; he speaks impeccable English which is very helpful when you order your meal because it comes ‘made to order!’
We had a great conversation together and I discovered he modeled the Tortilla Factory after Chipotle’s in the states. They have bowls and burritos, tacos and they special-made a cheese quesadillas for my daughter! I inquired about the ‘spicy chicken’, how spicy is it? Not too spicy at all. Come to find out the local Okinawans do not like spicy food; which explains why the Mexican food over here is so mild compared to the states.
It’s super easy to find and parking is very convenient. Make the trip over you won’t be disappointed.
