Me and Daphne were walking around the fountain area of Suntec City because that's where many of the restaurants are as well. We eventually decided to go to NYDC, though in retrospect, I really wished we didn't.
Roast Chicken and Grilled Pepper Baked Pasta: 3/10
Sure, I took the risk and did not order a dish that had a "Wow" label, NYDC's equivalent of a chef's recommendation. I never did expect to see my food served in an old looking dish with charred (and even small cracks) sides. I never did expect to have my fork touch the pasta like it was touching the ceramic dish, hard and certainly burnt. I never did expect smooth cheese to be hard and burnt too. I must say again, the pasta was dry, hard and burnt. The chicken was the only thing unburnt, miraculously. It must have been from a well-behaved chicken.
Mushroom Ham Baked Rice: 7.3/10
Daphne liked her rice, but was equally unprepared for the old-looking dish that it was served in. She also found much of the sides of the food too burnt for her liking.
Fair. It was early, almost 6pm and eventhough it was a public holiday, it was still very quiet. The staff however didn't seem quite bothered to serve us. Come on, I know it's a public holiday, but SMILE please.

1. For people who don't eat pork, the good thing about NYDC is that they indicate which dishes have pork, and thus, which don't.
2. To be fair, NYDC serves great desserts and cakes. Give them a try instead, like Cookie Monster.
