Not only is Cafe Gotham the hero that Yangon deserves; it’s the cafe that Yangon needs.
Stationed on Upper Kyimyindaing Road and the corner of Ohn Pin Street, Cafe Gotham opened two weeks ago. Owner Ko Min Bala, 28 years old, has been reading comic books since he was a kid and after watching the series Gotham dreamt of a cafe concept based on Gotham, a crime-riddled city in the DC Comics universe.
Graffiti on the walls depicts the main characters in action including Batman,Catwoman as well as the ultimate villain The Joker. These illustrations were painted by a famous local artist SATAN aka Toe Wai. Small action figures from the DC universe will join you on your table, adding to the playful vibe.
The menu at Cafe Gotham has a variety of coffees created using Spanish blend Catunambú, as well as plenty of lunch and snack options, ranging from tea leaf salad and to cheese burgers. Prices are reasonable, for a little over 5,000Ks you can get a cappuccino and a huge, grilled club sandwich with chicken.
Be sure to pick up a business card from Batman on your way out.
