Kor-Mex (Korean-Mexican) might seem like an unlikely combo but when you consider “ssam” Korean lettuce wrapped around grilled meat and sauce, it’s not such a leap to Mexican corn tacos. That little overlap in between? That, my friend, is Kor-Mex. Vatos Urban Tacos (by three Korean-Americans) has taken Korea by storm with 6 restaurants having opened in the last 5 years. Their latest venture – and first international post – is here in Singapore at South Beach. Kimchi Carnitas Fries ($16), tacos like the Barbacoa Pork ($10/2 tacos) or the Galbi Short Rib ($12/2 tacos) are what to order. Wash this down with some Mexican-style salt-rimmed Margaritas ($18).
