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.

Reviews of good food at Vatos Urban Tacos (South Beach)
Nutella Nachos ($16)

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.

Honey Tequila Wings ($16)

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 !

Pork Belly Tacos.

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

The Longhorn Burger.

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

A Tale Of Perfection

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!

Happy Cinco De Mayo

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...

This long weekends calls for a celebration.🎉

Korean-Mexican Fusion~

Korean Pork Belly Tacos [$14 for 3], Barbacoa Pork Tacos [$14 for 3], Honey Tequlia Chicken Wing [$16], Mango Prawn Quesadillas [$22], Classic Makgeolitas [$26].

It may look small portion, but 2 tacos already quite filling. Good food but quite pricy for alcohol drinks.

Prices stated before GST & SC.

Mexican-korean Fusion Tacos

The tacos were really not bad. In-house beer was nice too!

Chimi Tacos

This was messy to eat but so worth it! Love the generous portions of well marinated chicken thigh & fresh vegetables & salsa. Definitely a favourite of the night!

Honey Chicken Wings With Blue Cheese Dip

Freshly fried chicken wings with honey glaze. Love that it didn't feel oily & that the blue cheese dip had actual cubes of blue cheese ❤

VATOS Urban Tacos

I've seen so many people profess over and over their love for tacos (to the extent of marrying one?!), but I never did understood their innate love for it because I've never tried Mexican food. But last Friday I finally had my first taste of it at Vatos, and probably because it's Korean-Mexican fusion food I fell absolutely head over heels with it!

I ordered: Spicy Chicken Quesadilla...
that's wrapped with spicy chicken chunks & topped with sour cream, arbol chili sauce & diced onions. It was such a delight to have, since all the ingredients blend and compliment each other so perfectly!

Vanessa ordered: Chimichurri Chicken Taco...
that consist of spicy chicken, Mexican cheese, lettuce, onion, chimichurri salsa and sour cream served on 100% corn tortilla. I had one and it was pretty good; it tastes much healthier than mine since the ratio of meat to veg in the tacos was probably 2:1? Hit my week's quota of veg intake after that! :)

Side order: Honey Tequila Chicken Wings...
Wings coated in sweet & spicy honey tequila sauce, served with deep-fried masa-battered jalapeños, cilantro & blue cheese dipping sauce. Yup! The blue cheese dip caught our attention and it was practically a must-order-and-try for us. The wings were superb by itself; really well-marinated and it though drenched with sauce the skin's still very crispy while the meat inside retained it's freshness and juiciness to it. The blue cheese dip wasn't too bad since there wasn't the pungent smell that I recalled of it having, but I'd prefer to eat the wings without the dip.

Must-mention: their Iced Peach Tea
Maybe it's because the weather outside was scorching hot, but boy did I regret not getting the large glass because it tastes really good! Just order that and tried it if you do visit them to know!

Crispy tortilla triangles coated with sugar-cinnamon mixture, loaded with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and liberally drizzled with Nutella sauce. So addictive yet so sinful, it’s definitely “nacho” average dessert. #punintended

Nutella Nachos

I absolutely loved the idea of this dish -- the dessert version of nachos.

Triangular torilla pieces were fried to crisp perfection, yet remaining ever so light because they were so thin. They reminded me of really, really crispy churros! The cold ice cream was definitely a nice contrast with the hot, freshly fried triangles.
I'm usually not a fan of soggy anything but really, the best part is getting a tortilla piece that was soaked with melted ice cream, drenched in chocolate sauce.

Ahhh, what a way to end a fantastic meal.

Baja Fish Taco

...And they managed to produce a winning taco again.
Golden batter encasing really moist & fresh fish that remained crispy even as I ate this after the Short Ribs Taco. I'm sure they really put thought into the flavours because they used a different slaw combination for the different protein. The tomatoes certainly added freshness and complemented the deep fried fish.
