Rolling out modern Korean-Mexican food that’s both delicious and exciting, Vatos Urban Tacos is one I’d recommend if you’re hankering after tacos, margaritas and the like.

They cleverly fuse the traditional flavors of Korea and the zesty, punchy qualities of Mexican cuisine, presenting a menu that’s really quite unlike anything I’ve tried in both aspects.

I’m especially fond of their Kimchi Carnitas Fries, a Vatos original that sees crispy fries topped with braised pork carnitas, kimchi and melted cheese, as well as their Galbi Short Rib tacos. Their nachos are pretty bomb as well as you can see here there seems to be more shredded pork than actual nachos.

Taking it up a notch from the conventional Mexican food truck-style taco, the Beef Bulgogi Taco sees adopts Korean flavors and even comes topped with a spicy, tangy kimchi mayonnaise. The elements of sweet, spicy and meaty all intermingle nicely making for one heck of a solid taco.

Other taco options that were pretty good too include the Pork Carnitas ($12++) & Citrus & Miso Tofu ($10++). The vegetarian latter might sound unappealing but on the contrary, the flavors on there are EXPLOSIVE (in a very good way).

This Is Mark. Mark Is The Most Entitled Diner Ever. Don’t Be Mark. When we go to restaurants, we don’t just want food. We want an Experience—and that’s fair, considering the money we spend on these meals. But when does expectation become entitlement? When do you cross the line from discerning to demanding? Is ‘foodie’ code for ‘fu...ssy’? Five chefs tell us.
