Omutaco, French + Tex-Mex + Japanese Food

This is Japanese food.

As mentioned on the "About" section of EDGY JAPAN, Japan can be described as a sponge -- its capability of absorbing cultures from all over the world.

For instance, food.

Curry, originated from India is evolved to curry rice and curry udon.

Ramen, originated from China is evolved to tsukemen and aburasoba (oily noodle).

There's Japanese food, hybridized with the one from the United States. (or rather, Tex-Mex.)

In Okinawa, Taco Rice, a mix of taco (salsa source + ground meat + onion + pepper + garlic + lettuce + cheese) and rice is ubiquitous.

Taco Rice

But a local restaurant, Kijimunaa took this dish one step further -- adding an essence of French culinary.

Omutaco, as the name suggests, is a mix of omelette and taco rice. A complete serving of Taco Rice is simply covered with fluffy omelette.


Indeed, this surely is a part of wide definition of Japanese food.
