We're trying to hang out with as many loved ones in Japan as possible before our big move, and so today we met up with some mighty fine friends at the Lalaport Koshien Mall (a good in-between place between our apartment and theirs).
I just adore Japanese mall food courts - and our food today was no exception! Mmmmm, Okinawan taco rice. Yum yum yum. I think this is a product of all the American military bases in Okinawa and all the rice the Japanese folks eat there - it's basically taco fixins on top of rice and you eat it with a spoon. Could easily be done at home.
This shop also does a version with an omelet on top with mayo and ketchup (not a big fan of mayo but this worked for me).
Definitely don't try it without Thomas.
My friend's daughter and son ate these Okinawan noodles - I'd never seen words on nori (sheets of dried seaweed), but it was beautiful! (The kanji said "Okinawa".) And apparently it was very tasty to boot.
