It was Pakcik's birthday,
he went to Marina Bay,
to reminisce about his good old day,
where he dumped a girl on valentine's day.
Sorry, I was just trying to rhyme. No, Pakcik didn't go to Marina Bay and dumped a girl on valentine's day (maybe some other days lah). But it was his 28th birthday.
So off we went to Holland Village to source for good food, not to mention that he kept pissing me off by suggesting sushi and sashimi. At last he decided to give N.Y.D.C a try, featured by wmw recently.
Have to admit that I was more impressed by the ambiance and the interesting menu rather than their food. The setting is vibrant and lively with colourful paintings around. Their menu is the most creative I have ever seen in my life, it is as good as reading kiddo story book. Each of their dishes are uniquely named. I had 'The Picasso' which was basically a 7-inch pizza with toppings of your choice. The greedy me chose 4 toppings: italian ham, pineapple, mushroom and bell pepper. The pizza base costs $8.95 and the price for each topping ranges from $1.50 to $2.25.
Pakcik had the 'Tears of the Heaven' priced at $15.50 (Choi, why you choose this dish on your birthday). The dish came loaded with pork bacon and spaghetti in creamy sauce. As usual, his comment is 'I cook better spaghetti'.
The dessert menu was extremely tempting, thanks to their funky names. I went for their 'Mango Tango' ($10.50) which came with their signature New York cheese cake and homemade mango ice-cream.
Pakcik had his birthday Mochamisu ($6.95) = Mocha + Tiramisu.
He finished his piece of cake.
And I was caught sulking at the aftermath.
As quoted by uncle, the service was excellent but the food was far from excellence. For me, my only complaint was that piece of New York cheesecake which was overated.
Last but not least, happy birthday pakcik!
