What A Comic Show!

Comic-book nerds, rejoice! Thanks to a comic themed restaurant and the hippest trendiest new hangout in town.  With a hanging upside down action figurine of Spiderman on the window glass and a life sized frame of Superman, comic-book fans will feel right at home at What a Comic Show (WACS). When you walk into a place like this, it brings you back to your childhood and makes you remember why you got into comics. Here you’ll get the flashback of those days where comic characters were our real heroes and how we mimicked ninja by using scales as swords to supernatural devil looking investigator, Hellboy.  Being a hardcore comic fanatic, I was in love with their ambiance. There are comics everywhere- on the walls, collage on the table tops, and even full issues on the table to read while you wait. It was indeed a joy when I spotted my favorite Iron man’s action figure. The walls display countless memorabilia from Marvel & other comics, including Mickey Mouse, head busts, figurines and movie posters. It provides excellent customer service in a friendly home style environment.  Customers can play any of the board games at any time. The restaurant is essentially my dream fan-cave brought to life!

Located at Safdarjung Development Area Market near Delhi, IIT Gate, this new age restaurant started by food lover and comic world fan- Pooja Moirangthem is one of a kind. Being a budding entrepreneur, Pooja has been in the Travel Industry for almost a decade and then decided to hang her boots as she always had the zest to start a unique and rejuvenating enterprise. The owner have meticulously handpicked and selected all the components of the business. They even organize live acoustic musical nights, screening of super blockbusters in the genre of animation, superheroes costume parties and much more.

I sat down and pursue the drinks menu to see what reference I can catch. A mocktail named PHANTOM PUNCH pops out immediately, it is a blend of lime soda, brown sugar with ginger syrup. Super healthy and refreshing drink. Then I opted for FRANSKENSTEIN BLOOD which did not suit my taste bud. I felt the portion of tomato juice was too strong.

To get the complete essence of both CONTINENTAL and ORIENTAL delicacies, I chose VEG PLATTER from each. Former platter consists of crispy French fries, potato wedges, mushroom triangle toast which was a perfect delight and simple bruschetta with tasty topping. While the latter has spring rolls, stuffed potato, chilly paneer which were good but shabalay and wontons were a letdown. On the recommendation of our pretty host, I tried CRISPY CORN PEPER SALT and BAM! It was an outburst of crunch and flavors. Here, I can say that spiciness was on point.

Then I had WHITE SAUCE MUSHROOM PASTA which again was brilliant. Up next was freshly made EGG SANDWICH with a side of fries, which for once was just the right amount. It has a taste that lingers and will make you want to revisit.

Like we all know a food review is incomplete without a sweet take, so for dessert, I had CHOCOLATE BROWNIE with CHOCOLATE ICE-CREAM which was good.

Clearly, this is a different kind of establishment. One that makes everyone feel welcome. It is a geeked out nerd fest with great food. Like Jim Zub said ‘Comic is social’ and so is WACS.

On a comical note I would like to add ‘May the FOOD be with you’!
