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.

From the Burpple community

quite a crowd on a friday night! loved the atmosphere and the baja fish tacos are really delicious! worth the price after the burpple discount! quesadillas are good too!!!

SUPER underrated fries from Vatos!!!!! Easily my favourite dish of that night - the portion is huge and the seasoning on the fries was so so flavourful, coupled with the sauce served delicious!!! I tried the highly raved kimchi fries my previous visit and I actually prefer this simple shoestring fries

Like the chicken fajitas burrito but worse. Fries don't really travel well, I presume it's much crispier when it's served at the restaurant. Pork belly was a bit lacking, very chewy, and there's chunks of whole chewy connective tissue/fats. Just get the chicken

Delicious. Everything comes tgt and the dark chicken meat was especially exceptional in roasted flavour. Gotta mention the heat which was just nice, it's present and it's just hot enough that u continually feel the burn but don't have to stop for a drink. Super generous portion tho, probably too much for one pax comfortably. It's filled and dense, really justifies the original price honestly

Scrambled eggs were just nice, fluffy but not too jelak. Steak was q tender and slightly chewy only, mesh well and the portion is super generous. The box is actually heavy and after 2 of these I was slightly full already. I challenge anyone to finish a taco without dropping anything at all, they're filled to the brim

Absolutely delicious. Pork carnitas(ik they said barbacoa but the pork in my bowl was clearly caramelised) and steak. Steak was well-cooked despite being thin, pink in the middle and carrying just enough chew to work with the whole dish perfectly. Pair that w hot sauce, veggies and guac and it's a superbly satisfying bowl.

P.S. Honestly I've always found their food pricey, but I've always understood why once I receive the food. Good quality ingredients, and a super generous portion. I started on this bowl during lunch, had it for dinner, and finally finished it for supper. No wonder it's called the fat bastard
