DC Super Heroes Cafe MBS is an interesting cafe located at one end of the Marina Bay Sands Shopping Mall (also known as The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands). In addition to being a restaurant, it is also a store which sells all kinds of DC Comics mechandise. Our deprived childhood made us make an unscheduled detour to admire the goods and to make a stop at the DC Super Heroes Cafe. This would be a perfect place to bring children, except for one thing.
Many of the superheroes we can think of were in attendance at the DC Super Heroes Cafe MBS. The big names like Superman, Batman and Wonderwoman were there. Even the less frequently seen Green Lantern was also there, aiming his ring at us. According to Wikipedia, the ring is powered by the wearer’s willpower.
DC Super Heroes Cafe MBS Menu
We were surprised to see that The DC Super Heroes Cafe serves a wide range of dishes. From our quick observation, they are mostly mainstream Western food items but presented with interesting names. Care for some Aquaman Chili Squid? Here are some pictures of the menu. You can see the entire selection at the online menu.
What we ate at DC Super Heroes Cafe MBS
Alas, we already had lunch and could not indulge in any of the superhero inspired dishes. At one corner of the cafe is a section where shoppers can just have a drink and a quick snack. We had Late Night Summer Latte ($6.90) with a Superman blueberry cupcake ($8.90).
The latte was nicely decorated with the Batman logo. The Superman cupcake was had a strong sugary “S” shield to ensure that it won’t be mistaken for anything else. Even though gimmicky, these connections to our superheroes as well as seeing the DC Comics paraphenalia did bring out the child in us. Although it has to be said that, apart from the superhero icons, the coffee and the cupcake were pretty average. Which brings us to the only reservation we have about this place. The prices are a bit high.
