It is here – Singapore’s first DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe, and it is massive. Walking towards this huge cafe is like unveiling a pot of gold – we were amazed, not just by its gargantuan size, but by all the superhero murals and life-sized figurines.
Any fan of DC’s superheroes will be flocking here very soon and we foresee that this cafe will get even more crowded during the weekends and peak hours. The DC Cafe has a dedicated takeaway counter with a mini seating area just for cakes, snacks and drinks, and another bigger space for savoury food.
We cannot deny that we were fan girl-ing HARD. After admiring Batman and his Batmobile, we took a pick at their pretty desserts – colourful cakes, embossed fondant cupcakes and quirky-named drinks, just to name a few.
We settled for a cupcake, a mini dessert and an iced tea. Being an avid fan of The Flash, our eyes were drawn to this beautifully made fondant blueberry cupcake (S$8.90). To be honest, the price took us aback quite a bit, but it was so worth it. Who doesn’t like The Flash?
Moving on, we had a taste of the Raspberry with Lychee Mousse (S$8.90) which came with a mini embossed Wonder Woman logo. Apart from the gimmicky chocolate on top, we preferred the taste of this over the cupcake.
The mousse was light and airy, far from being overly dense. The raspberry added a touch of acidity and tartness, which we enjoyed thoroughly.
Although we were satisfied with the fun-looking desserts, we were certainly let down by the expensive iced tea. For almost S$7 a cup, we were served a generic cup of iced tea that had completely no wow factor. A word of advice – stick to the desserts.
Over at DC Comics Super Heroes’ restaurant, the food menu is divided into several categories – Starters, Quesdilla, Sandwiches, Burgers, Entrees and Pastas.
The signature dishes include Hall of Justice Combo (S$20.90), Chicken Hawk Quesadilla (S$14.90), Aquaman’s Arrabiata (S$24.90) and the Instagram worthy Batman’s Dark Knight Charcoal Burger (S$25.90)
If you are a huge fan of superheroes like us, it is still a must to visit this cafe to experience DC in its full glory.
