Tacos in Japan

Because the last post was about Takao- this time I'll talk about tacos. :-) Mexican food is rare here, especially good Mexican food. I had decent tacos in Tokyo and Nagoya (at Frijoles, a place in Roppongi, and Los Tacos in Nagoya) but that is unusual. So anyway we decided one day to make our own. Yamaya has taco seasoning and salsa and we made our own tortillas off an internet recipe. To make the meat we fried onions and garlic and then added the minced meat (usually a combination of beef and pork). To that we added the seasoning, canned tomatoes, and touch of ketchup. I even added some soybeans in mine- not bad. For toppings we had cabbage, tomatoes and the salsa from Yamaya. Not bad. The highlight for me was probably the homemade tortillas.
Here is one recipe:

  • 2 cups of white flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup warm water
