Galbi Short Rib Tacos

$12.00 · 11 Reviews

This has a mix of Korean sauces and ingredients commonly used in Mexican food. The beef was flavourful and tender as well. Tacos/burritos are one for one with burpple beyond!

Chilli Lime Prawn Tacos ($13 for 2)
Baja Fish Tacos ($12 for 2)

Get 3 for 2 on Tacos Tuesday! Soft tortillas were used for the tacos instead of the hard crunchy tortillas which I prefer. The prawns in the tacos were flash fried and topped with Asian slaw. Though light with good texture, it was lacking in flavour. On the other hand, the fish tacos were a hit favourite. The fish were beer-battered and fried to a crisp brown. Topped with fruit coleslaw and creamy chipotle mayo, it was refreshing with every bite.

Extras: Missing in the photo is the Galbi Short Rib tacos ($14 for 2) that tasted like mini-wraps filled with Korean grilled meat and Asian slaw. Small but packed with real flavour.

(Think korean sauces and slaw, ssamjang aioli), washed down with their delightful beer cider margaritas. .

“Taco Tuesday”. Two words that would thrill any Mexican food lover. It is a bonus when you forget it is a Tuesday and suddenly see the banner advertising it outside Vatos just as you’re walking in. Which is what happened to us earlier this week. Whoohooo!!
We warmed up with a serving of Queso (hot cheese sauce) and Chips before ordering enough plates of tacos to conquer the entire surface of our table. Because that’s the only way to do “Taco Tuesday”. Am I right or am I right?
Having eaten a few different kinds including the Barbacoa (slow-braised pork with hot sauce) pictured above, I still vote the Baja Fish (it has a large, super crunchy deep-fried fish fillet) and the Galbi Short Rib Tacos (it comprises of marinated beef short rib with Ssamjang aioli, Asian slaw, raw chopped onions and sesame seeds) as the tastiest of the lot.


Featuring Galbi Short Rib "Urban" Tacos ($18 for 3). Tender and flavourful short ribs among crunchy slaw. 😁👍🏻 @vatossg ————————————————————————

Don't be fooled by the mound of fresh vegs, beneath that is a gold mine of juicy beef and moist prawns.

The beef tacos were the clear winner between the two. Perfectly marinated and bursting with juice, it was a chaotic mess with bits and bobs falling out everywhere; but we didn't care. The prawns were flashed fried but still remained plump and tasty but unfortunately were sorely outnumbered by the amount of beef we had (each taco had like 2 prawns?)

Prices are pretty alright as long as you avoid the Margaritas. All in all a great experience at Vatos!

⚠ Warning: This will get MESSY! ⚠

Soft tacos packed full of ingredients & spilling from all sides, these were juicy & flavourful. Don't expect to be glamorous, because Vatos is SO GENEROUS with their ingredients-- you will have stuff spilling out of your taco with every bite. Om nom nom nom. That means that after you finish your tacos, you might have a mini salad on your plate to clean up 😜

Galbi Short Rib Tacos - $12 for 2 / $17 for 3

You might say this is on the pricey side, but with the amount of meat & ingredients you get makes it worth it. The Galbi Short Rib Tacos was my favourite; it was super juicy, a little sweet, & not spicy.

Braised pork shoulder tacos with chopped onions, cilantro and Vatos hot sauce. Extra points for their floured tortillas; made extra thin but none of the contents will cause any tear and most importantly doesn't have the strong funky "alkaline" taste like most other taco houses.
Vatos carries a total of 9 taco variations (spoiling us with choices!), if you're here and having a hard time picking one, go for their Galbi Short Rib taco and Baja Fish tacos!


The smoky and sweet taste of the meat accompany well with the Asian slaw and the soft taco skin!
