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.

The dining area. If I’m not wrong, the open kitchen was designed to resemble, Arkham?

By coincidence or the outcome of my subconscious telepathic persuasion, we were offered the Wonder Woman booth. She has always been my favourite DC superhero. Since the 70s!

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.

Dome Wood Oven Pizza selection. The panels chosen for the menu didn’t just come from the gaudy Silver and Bronze ages. They include the darker, modern ones.

What I finally ordered. Martha Kent’s Homely Beef Bolognaise. Did Mrs. Kent use to do such cut-outs for a young Superman? This tasted great, by the way. The sauce was fresh and rich.

My after-dinner sin. Green Arrow Chocolate Mint Milkshake. I couldn’t stop thinking of Stephen Amell’s bod while slurping this. Hmpf!

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.

Got a better shot of the pastry counter this time. As you can see, the Daily Planet has moved into the confectionery business … (Who’s their food writer, I wonder)
