Review Summary:

Every now and then a restaurant comes in that changes the scene. Vatos could very well be it. They serve modern California-Baha style Mexican street tacos--the kind that have been hitting the U.S. by storm. People rave about the Kimchi Carnitas Fries, loaded down with tender braised pork and stir-fried kimchi. Addictive. The tacos are inexpensive and full of flavor. They're not the Tex-Mex that's common in Korea. It's a different mature style. They are always experimenting with their menu, and their food is always fresh. The cocktails are worth the trip alone. The Mexican Martini comes with a shaker, and they usually allow only one per customer. There is also a secret menu. Maybe you can coax it out of Kenny, Sid, or Jonathan
