Immersive dining at DC Super Heroes Cafe – Takashimaya with my elderly ones.
Couple of weekends back, I accomplished the unexpected. Aching to check out the new DC Super Heroes Cafe at Takashimaya, but tied down by work throughout the week, I slyly suggested heading to the cafe for dinner on family Sunday.
Would you believe it? My two elderly ones agreed right away. Maybe it’s because they remembered I used to be so crazy over the ultra cheesy Superfriends cartoons in the 80s. Or maybe they have long noticed how I still brighten up whenever I walk past any DC figurines.
Or maybe they just wanted to see me as an excitable eight-year-old again.
The Justice League, and More, at DC Super Heroes Café Takashimaya
Food ordering time. This took me quite a while because the menu is so thick, and laid out to resemble a DC compilation.
Being themed around DC characters, or should I say the founding members of the Justice League, most if not all of the dishes were named after famous DC personalities. It was quite a joy going through the menu to see how these JL powerhouses were represented.
On the whole, I’d say the cafe’s dishes are well-prepared and immaculately presented, though they do take a while to be served.
What’s more noteworthy about the dining experience, on the other hand, is the service. We were attended to by an older server and she was so congenial and accommodating.
She even gave me extra copies of the DC table covers, which would eventually become part of my geek display case project. Alfred himself would have approved of her as a co-worker.
Second Visit – Feb 9, 2018
Having greatly enjoyed myself, I had dinner at DC Super Heroes Cafe Takashimaya again last night. As I’m preparing for Chinese New Year feasting, ahem, I chose a vegetarian dish this time around too.
It turned out to be even better than the Beef Bolognaise, surprise surprise. The mushroom tofu patty was pleasantly flavourful and crispy. It went well with the avocado sauce too.
DC Super Heroes Cafe Takashimaya is at 391A Orchard Road, #02-13 Ngee Ann City, just opposite the second floor taxi stand. It’s open from 10 to 10 daily.
