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.

I used to go NYDC often with Hui Yi in our Chung Cheng and VJ days, so much so that we seldom patronise it anymore. But it's still a nice place for some good desserts anytime.

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
