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.

Went to Vatos Urban Tacos and had an extremely heavy carb loaded meal! Went into food coma right after, really ate a lot. But boy, was it good.

We bought their Korean Po Boy and Vatos Style (chicken) burritos, their signature Kimchi Carnitas Fries, Barbacoa Jalapeño Spring Rolls, Bacon and Blue Cheese Guacamole (served with tortilla, and there were candied walnuts in the guac which was a nice touch) and lastly, their ever so popular Baja Fish Tacos.

$102 dollars worth of amazing food made more affordable by Chope, having purchased their discount voucher during the birthday sale. The food is on the pricier side, but the portions were pretty big! Everything was just too good, including their prompt and professional service! Make this your go to place for Mexican!

Rating :5/5

Off their signature “Urban Tacos”, we got their Baja Fish ($10 for 2 tacos/ $14 for 3 tacos), Chimichurri Chicken tacos ($10 for 2 tacos/ $14 for 3 tacos) to share and two glasses of Sweet Georgia Peach Iced Tea. The more refreshing option of the two, the Chimichurri Chicken was pleasantly spicy with a sweet tangy chimichurri salsa coupled with crunchy lettuce, sour cream and mexican cheese. But the clear winner for me is their tempura beer-battered white fish. Fresh and flaky, the fillets enclosed with the crisp batter were kept moist and was nicely seasoned. The accompanying pico de gallo (salsa) and apple coleslaw adding a lovely sweetness and bite while cutting the richness of the fish. The bit of heat from the chipotle mayo smeared over the soft tortillas was also a nice touch.


Back at vatos after my first visit for the burpple year end party, and decided to order the quesadillas because i remembered liking them alot. The 4 pieces didn't seem like much, but perhaps due to the thickness of the wrap and the richness of the cheese, was actually quite a substantial meal.

Preciously tried the kimchi pork and loved it, but the carne asada that i decided to try this time round was a little disappointing. While being super flavourful with just the right punch if spiciness, the beef was tough and chewy. I'd recommend to stick with the pork instead which was more tender.

Although i liked the food in general, prices here are indeed on the higher end, and i wouldn't dare say that it would have been worth it without burpple beyond

The moment you walk into the place, you’re hit with strong overpowering smell of onions which can be a little unpleasant.

The atmosphere is one of industrial but yet it is cosy. The tacos are pretty good but it’s not the best out there and they are pretty expensive, for the price you’ve to pay. You could get better tacos out there as well.

They do serve up some fancy and cool alcoholic drinks which girls would definitely love. I feel you can visit this restaurant if you’re not on a budget and don’t mind the price point.

We had the spicy chicken ($18) and carne asada ($19) quesadillas. They were decent but I really really love their tacos which I had on a previous visit!!!

Vatos Style Burrito - $18
Burrito filled with mexican rice, black bean, cheese, kimchi, french fries, cilantro lime crema, chipotle mayo, cilantro onion, pico de gallo & vatos hot sauce. I picked barbacoa pork meat as the meat filling. It’s so huge it’s good for 2 ladies seriously, best paired with a couple of drinks. Eligible with burpple beyond, nothing gets better than that
