NYDC Cafe & Restaurant, Bugis Junction

So finally I was able to go back to the gym tonight. As a reward, I decided to go to NYDC for dessert hehehe. Since we already had fish soup for dinner, might as well have something sinful for dessert (remember the food exchange? hehehe). We actually wanted to go to TCC but the place was packed. While looking for Coffee Bean, we stumbled at NYDC . So off we went.

Immediately as you enter the cafe, the glorious-looking cakes are displayed. For some reason, the server made us sit at a blind corner of the cafe. Then when we were ready to order, they couldn't see us so we had to wait till someone actually passed by. Very bad service. To think the place was half-full since it was past 10pm.

We ordered their combo dessert. I had "Bugs fav" ($9.80) - Warm pineapple carrot cake and macadamia nut ice cream topped with pistachio nuts and almond flakes. I think what they meant by "fav" was fave - as in favorite. It says their ice cream is home-made. Nothing special. It was nutty but bland. The cake was not bad but not outstanding. Quite moist though. I only ate half coz I didn't want to waste my exercise for a not-so-good dessert.

Zach had the "Jazzy Brownie" ($8.95) - French vanilla ice cream built on a warm ultimate chocolate brownie. Tertiary students "fav" as they claim. Defintely, not my "fav". The brownie was moist indeed but not fudgy nor "ultimately chocolate-y".

In the end, we had to get up and pay at the cashier because no one of the 8 servers (yes i counted) could see us from where we were seated. So that was it. I had high hopes for NYDC but it ended on a sour note, rather than a sweet one. The place was nicely decorated though, it looked like a typical american diner.

Here is my rating for NYDC:

Ambiance - 3
Service - 1
Food - 2.5
Presentation - 2
Value for money - 2
