Hardcore fans of the DC Universe must have gone to DC Super Heroes Cafe (though Merriam spells it as superheroes) when they opened last June. As a moviegoer and a cafe hunter, not really a DC fan though, I would not miss this.
So two months after their opening, c’mon, Marvel, where’s yours?
What do you expect from a themed cafe? The whole place was decorated with DC superheroes, though they were only limited to Justice League and Batman villains (I guess because it’s so easy to make food out of them). The walls were covered with superheroes, and there were also life-size Justice League members.
The seats had the names of DC heroes and villains on them, and the whole place was filled with DC comic books and figurines.
May I just put this here: I was impressed with how the menu looked like.
Anyway, we went there two times, one for lunch and the other for dinner. During lunch, I ordered Dark Knight Chocolate Latte (Php 160.00) and Deck of Cards (Php 210.00).
The Dark Knight Chocolate Latte tastes familiar, maybe because it consisted of dark chocolate and cacao powder. It reminds me of my rainy morning with my mother; definitely a 9/10.
However, I wasn’t ready for the combination of sweet and sour that Deck of Cards presented, which guaranteed a 6/10 for me (because of this, I discovered that I’m not a lime and strawberry person). I suggest you share this with another person.
For dinner, I ordered baked pepperoni zitti (Php 380.00), strawberry trifle (Php 240.00), and double nut white choco frappe (Php 190.00)
My dinner experience was not as good as during lunch, maybe because it was nearing ten in the evening already. The baked pepperoni zitti was okay, but the bread that went with it was already makunat. But since the pasta itself was okay, I would rate it a 7/10.
On the other hand, I was impressed with how the double nut white choco frappe tasted. However, it should have been sky blue with something pink. It appeared green when it was served to me. It should have been a nine, but I would give it an 8/10.
The strawberry trifle was really aesthetically pleasing. But again, I did not quite enjoy it since I was not a fan of strawberry (ordered it because I was curious). I loved the green cookie though; it saved the whole thing, a 7/10.
