Japanese Taco rice (タコライス, takoraisu)

My son requested me to make Taco, while I searching for a recipe, and I found this special Japanese Taco rice (according to Wikipedia, Taco rice is a popular meal in Okinawa Japan, read more here).
And my son was enjoyed this rice very much, and temporary he has forgotten the real Taco ^_^
