What better way to spend a hot afternoon than eating ice cream? After lunch, we popped over to NYDC for their famed desserts. I haven’t been to NYDC for quite a long time and the price has certainly increased. I remember my 1st mudpie with Jasmine costs much cheaper then.
The Tiramisu Mudpie ($10.95++) is a threesome of mocha almond fudge, French vanilla and double chocolate chip ice cream with Kahlua-soaked biscuits, topped with chocolate sauce and a cherry. I think that this would be even nicer if the biscuits are thicker. Otherwise, it just feels like eating vanilla and chocolate ice cream.
Irish Cream Mudpie ($10.95++) supposedly has a raving review from Elle magazine. And I understand why this is such a hit. The mudpie comes with French vanilla and double chocolate chip ice cream with Baileys in an oreo crust, topped with chocolate sauce. It sounds similar to the tiramisu mudpie but tastes better—probably due to the sweet Baileys and slightly coarse texture of the crust.
That Boney Cake ($9.80++) is made for pure chocoholics. We chose French vanilla (or double chocolate) ice cream which is served with the Elmer Fudge (a.k.a. Ugly Cake) and topped with all chocolate accessories. The cake is really good, very moist and dense. Eaten together with the cold ice cream, this dessert hits all the right notes.
Service was very good and prompt. Our waiter was a trainee and he fumbled a little when we asked for some recommendations. In the end, we chose all the desserts he didn’t recommend. Nevertheless, we gave him a good rating in the feedback form.
