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 it for dinner during family Sunday. Would you believe it? My two elderly ones actually agreed right away. Maybe it’s because they remembered I used to be so crazy over the super cheesy Superfriends cartoons in the 80s. And got a kick out of seeing me as an excitable eight-year-old again.
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 these famous personalities too. It was quite a kick 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, at the same time, is the service. We were attended to by an older server and she was so congenial and accommodating. Alfred himself would have approved of her as a co-worker.
Repeat 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, I chose a vegetarian dish this round. This turned out to be better than the Beef Bolognaise. The mushroom tofu patty was pleasantly flavourful and crispy. It went very 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.
