I am a sucker for a good gimmick, I loved anything themed, even if I don’t particularly have a big interest in the chosen theme, I get swept away with good marketing. So imagine my excitement when we stumbled across the DC Superheroes Cafe inside the Putra Mall, Kuala Lumpur. I was sitting down before we even checked out the menu, I could very easily end this blog now by saying it is fantastic, just go but I figured that probably wouldn’t be too interesting, but it is great and gives Universal Island’s of Adventure a run for its money with its eye for detail.
The cafe is placed alongside the DC comic shop and is not overly big in size, I can imagine it is quite cramped at busy times, but luckily we went on a weekday lunch time when it was relatively quiet! The menu, which is presented as a comic book, has a wide range of meat and vegetarian American Fast food, think burgers, chips, etc, of course, all meals are cleverly named after DC characters with a big focus on the recent Suicide Squad release as well as the more classic characters as well. They also have a massive range of themed drinks, from smoothies to milkshakes and various coffees.
As I mentioned, the eye for detail is the massive selling point for this restaurant, even down to the ice cubes, my Suicide squad themed juice came complete with a Joker and Harley Quinn ice cube. I was so so happy.
After a long time deliberating what to go for mains, I went for the Superman Meal while DJ went for a Batman themed. While we waited for our food, various DC shows are available to watch on the screens placed around the restaurant and comic books are placed on the tables, a brilliant idea to keep kids entertained while they wait.
The food was no exception on the detail front, with logo embellished burger buns and even corresponding superhero sauce containers, everything had been thought of, mine meal was even served inside a Superman lunch box.
The large portions meant, unfortunately, we had no room for dessert but they had some incredible looking rainbow cakes available ( which are also available to take away if you have no room to sit in!). The meals were good, not the best we had in Kuala Lumpur, but not the worst either, and were an average price for the rest of the city, but overall it was the experience that made this restaurant, and it is the reason I am recommending people to visit it. I am not a massive DC / Marvel fan, but the all the details, decor and effort that is put in really makes for a fun immersive interactive meal whether comics are your thing or not.
