Tacorice Onigiri!
A couple of months ago, I randomly decided to make red wine kakigori(shaved ice). Surprisingly, it turned out well! This success has set me down a weird path of experimentation with Japanese food, my next creation is a take on a popular dish from Okinawa… Taco rice onigiri!

Mince in! Then I topped with salsa and cheese.

Finally, instead of seaweed, wrap in a piece of lettuce and enjoy with a can of Orion(or your beer of choice) 🙂 Delicious!

Now, what to make next…
