One of Korea’s hottest restaurants, Vatos Urban Tacos, has come to Singapore. Influenced by Mexican street tacos in Los Angeles and home-cooked Korean meals, the menu consists of creations like the Kimchi Carnitas Fries, Galbi Tacos, and Spicy Chicken Quesadillas. Vatos Urban Tacos has since garnered praise for providing exciting new tastes using only the freshest ingredients. CNN named Vatos the “Hottest New Restaurant in Seoul,” and The Daily Meal chose Vatos as one of the “10 Best American Restaurants Outside of the States”. Vatos Singapore is located in the beautiful former National Armoury Building in South Beach and can seat up to 80 people indoors and another 30 people outdoors.

Literally here at Vatos Urban Taco. We had the Sexy Sanchez (strawberry margarita + strawberry cider) and Grow A Pear (passion fruit margarita + pear cider). Used the #entertainerapp for #1for1 deals here. Awesome fruity (and deceivingly potent alcoholic) drinks for the night!

Throwback to last Saturday at @VatosSg in @SouthBeachAvenueSg , collaboration with @IskinaCebuSingapore for Korean-Mexican-Filipino Thanksgiving party.

Ssamjang aioli, iskina cebu lechon and chimichurri salsa were encased in a homemade tortilla shell, the chimichurri salsa went well at balancing the fattiness of the meat but it also served to inhibit the lechon skin, which instead of being crisp was rather dull and flat.

The staff actually told us this was the pork belly lechon but i think the orders might have been mixed up.

Corn chips with mashed black beans, cilantro lime cream, hot sauce, guacamole, pico de gallo and sliced jalapenos. You can to choose your meats (I really like the seared galbi) before it all gets smoothered with hot melted cheese sauce.

Super heavy and meant for sharing, this is even more delicious than it sounds.

Heaps of shredded braised pork carnitas, sautéed kimchi, the usual Mexican condiments and gooey cheese are loaded atop of a bed of seasoned shoestring fries. The zesty tang from the kimchi definitely brightens the dish flavour and makes it stands out. The Kimchi Carnitas Fries was voted as “Best Dish In Korea” by 10 Magazine and one of the “six must-try foods in Seoul” by The Fodor’s Travel Guide.

Filled with melted mozzarella cheese and chipotle prawn, the tortilla is topped with sour cream, avocado slices and fresh mango salsa. The heavy cheese is balanced out by the light and vibrant mango salsa. The avocado slices added a nice creamy texture to the otherwise dry tortilla skin.

Loved the tacos!! Had the pork belly and chimichurri chicken! The meat was done perfectly, so tender! Great mix of flavours too. Kimchi fries were not bad, but made me so thirsty after a while haha. Will be back for sureeee.

The onion slices totally balance out the pork belly...slurpss! 🤤
Ordered 3 tacos for S$17.

This place is worth a visit. We had the kimichi fries, their signature tacos and a bowl burrito....AWESOME. I love the concept and especially how everything is so flavourful. We had to get their bed magaritas. Also a great seller and a good idea as well. Will definitely be back with some friends.

A very simple dessert - deep fried flour pancakes cut into triangles, drizzled with chocolate syrup and topped with a scoop of original vanilla ice cream. Simple yet attractive to the appetite & tummy.

Fried chicken wings & drumlets coated with honey tequila sauce, with blue cheese truffle dip. The dip complemented the wings well but personally I'm not a fan of blue cheese so I had most of the drumlets without it. If you're a spicy lover then I'd definitely recommend getting this for a spicy kick fix !

The pork belly was tender and juicy. The flavours were magical! Delicious!

Burger with onion rings. One of the best burgers we ever had. The patty was cooked medium rare as requested.

My second time here and I think the food has gotten better. Not just better .... I think this is actually the best Mex food in Singapore despite being a KorMex place. Every dish was fresh, tasty and well prepared. Drinks are on the pricey side but sufficiently strong. I will be back!

Don your flashiest sombrero and pile into Vatos for some inventive and tasty Mexican inspired grub... Purists may shout but I can't help but notice how quickly the full house of diners were inhaling tacos and burritos left right and center... These mango prawn quesadillas were no exception... Good thing there was an even number of pieces or there may have been dinner time negotiations brewing...
