After visiting Batu Caves, we headed for Bukit Bintang, one of the main shopping belts of the city. We shopped around for a short while. Around 4pm, we decided to have a break and give our tired bodies a rest. We hunted for a good cafe at the shopping malls, one that we can name as one of the Best Places To Eat In Kuala Lumpur. Took a bit of time, and we finally found it – the DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe and Store!
Take a look at the video below for a tour of this amazing joint. After the video, we share our awesome experience below it.
When we arrived at Pavilion Shopping Mall, we were quite impressed, and had good feelings that we would be able to find a nice cafe to hang out, chat, and have good coffee and cakes. What we found was way beyond our expectations.
As we took the escalators up the floors, we cannot help but notice the DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe and Store. The store front was filled with so much vibrant color that it stood out against all the other stores. Naturally, we gravitated to the shop. We were determined to check this multi color sight out, and enjoy good coffee and cakes.
Also, we are fanboys of everything in the world of comics. And a place like DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe and Store is a dream come true. Great anticipation and excitement was building as we got closer to the store.
Ready for some fun?
DC Comics Super Heroes Store
When we arrived at the shop, we were greeted with a flood of bright and vivid colors. It was exhilarating!
At the window display, there were life size mannequins of Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman (see photo above). At the entrance, there were merchandise on sale with a huge Superman logo on the wall.
We could not stop smiling.
Also at the entrance was the Batmobile! See the above video to see more of this cool machine.
From the ceiling to the floor, there were merchandise and decor from the DC Universe. There were comic books, toys, T-shirts, gadgets, and more! There were even some super heroes apparel. Need to dress up as Superman or Wonder Woman?
You name it.
They got it.
Deeper into the shop, there were more busts, mannequins and full costumes of more Super Heroes. The above was one of the Dark Knight. Imagine how cool and menacing this will look in your home?
In the video, there is a moment with the Superman costume that Brandon Routh wore. I read online somewhere that he visited the store. How awesome is that?!
DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe
Beware villains! Superman and Batman stands guard at the entrance of the DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe.
The food and beverage wing of the establishment is a real treat for senses. Just like the store, characters from the DC Universe adorn the walls, tables, chairs, menus, dining accessories, and even the food and drinks.
Delicious food and drinks are designed with your favorite super hero in mind. Fancy a Batman Burger? A Superman Cappuccino?
At entrance, popular cakes like the velvet cakes were given a twist. Not only named with Super Heroes moniker, each cake comes with a Super Hero logo on top.
Main courses were ingeniously dubbed after villains and super heroes. There was The Breakfast League, obviously from The Justice League. Then there was the Riddler’s Egg Twister. And so on.
It was unfortunate that we arrived during tea time, around 4pm. If we had discovered this dining delight earlier, you can be sure we will definitely have a taste of some of their DC dishes.
Instead, we were there for coffee and cakes. And that was what we had. The above photo is the Dawn of Justice Cappuccino that I sipped and relished. It was a pity to eventually destroy the beautiful Dawn of Justice image on the frothing.
What is a visit to the DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe without a taste of Superman? Oops … I mean the Superman Velvet Cake. haha
The cake was nothing sensational. But it was not bad, too. Like everything at the store, it was more about the experience. The fun of having something meal, drink or dessert that has a slice of the Super Heroes. (no pun intended)
Any fan who visits will think he or she has died and gone to super heaven. We definitely did. But it is truly not just a place for fans. Friends of fans will enjoy it too. Especially to see their friends go into geek mode. And even if you are neither fan or friend of fan, it will be a unique experience while you shop and dine.
