Abundant and Affordable Varieties Available! A Fast Food Sensation Taco Rice Restaurant! RuLer’s TACORICE (Maehara, Ginowan City)
"Taco Rice"is located on Prefecture Route 34 that connects two major national roads, Route 58 and 330 in Ginowan City. The taco rice specialty shop "RuLer's TACORiCE" is located on a street visited by many local people .
"Taco rice" was invented in Okinawa. It is topped with ingredients from tacos, the popular Mexican food in the USA. After World War II, tacos were transferred to Okinawa upon the arrival of the US military. A unique Okinawan arrangement was added. Taco meat, cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes are the common ingredients. However, each restaurant created its own ideas and these variations started to appear on their menus. Tacos are widely loved as one of the soul food of Okinawa prefecture. They still continue to evolve.
An Okinawa fast food is invented! Loved by people of all generations!
The owner of RuLer's TACORiCE, Mr.Atsushi Toguchi, was born and raised in Okinawa (right picture). At an Izakaya in Tokyo, he was trained in restaurant hospitality management, including service, cooking, store management, etc. He opened RuLer's TACORiCE in Maehara, Ginowan in 2014 and has been operating it since.
"I am from Okinawa and I've been wanting to open a well-known taco rice restaurant since taco rice is very popular.""Mr. Toguchi`s dream is to expand the restaurant and make it into a franchise in Okinawa. Apparently, he is aiming to provide a restaurant, in which the charm of Okinawa is passed on the people who are greeted by the energetic staff.
When looking inside the shop, wooden furniture that is beautifully arranged and a warm calm atmosphere come into view. Even after lunch time, the customers are enjoying meals while chatting with friends. Couples and people from different generations and genders spend their own time contemplating.
