“Batman BBQ”, Shanghai

Down a dark alley off Huaihai Lu here in Shanghai, like a scene right out of Gotham City, there’s a hidden restaurant called Yakiniku Hero. However, around town, people here know it by another name… “Batman BBQ”!

Rumor has it that the owner, one of China’s biggest Batman fans and collectors, wanted to open an official DC Cafe like the one in Singapore, but was denied the rights, so created this place to showcase his vast collection of memorabilia to the public.

You find Yakiniku Hero by looking for.. what else… the Bat Signal!

Double doors then slide open and you encounter the Caped Crusader himself as you walk into this Batcave inspired space…

The decorations that adorn the entire restaurant include everything from classic collectibles and props to newer life-sized statues, but most are mainly movie-focused…

Waiting for Alfred…


Coals that “burn like the vengeance in Batman’s heart” are brought to your table to cook your meal…

Their menu is a mix of beef, pork and chicken cuts, like you’d find at any other yakiniku or Korean BBQ restaurant…

Unfortunately, none of the meat is bat-shaped which is such a missed opportunity…

The latest bat-accessory… wet naps!

Harley sees you off when you finish diner…

I hear this place has become so successful that the owner is now considering a Marvel-themed restaurant, which I’ll have to keep an ear to the ground for!
