New York New York restaurant at Ang Mo Kio Hub
While the façade is prepossessing, the menu is just as enticing, offering gastronomic options in playful terms, such as “Give me Liberty” chicken cheese burger or the Jiggy Piggy. Late risers can take advantage of the scrumptious all-day breakfast menu!
Complimentary warm or iced water with a slice of lemon is served once you are settled down. Your glass is refilled in a timely manner.
For a slushy concoction, Summer Cuddle is an interesting option, composed of frozen strawberries and mango. This drink is rich and smooth, though quite thick to be a thirst quencher.
The novel idea of a mushroom soup resembling cappuccino makes a good prelude to the meal. The soup itself is quite delicious although the foamy cap does not carry much flavour. The NYNY Clam chowder bread bowl (S$8.90) is a more enticing option.
The NYNY cheesy nachos trio is a crowd pleaser. This addictive snack comes with 3 dips: salsa, sour cream and avocado, with the latter being the most popular.
The warm cheese that stretches as you grab a nacho is simply mouthwatering!
The juicy breaded mushrooms are a must-have. Served with a house-made ranch sauce, the sizeable white button mushrooms are lightly breaded and fried to a perfect crisp while juices remain sealed within. Word of caution: Do be mindful when you bite into the freshly cooked mushroom. The heat is so well insulated, piping hot juices will ooze out as you bite into each mushroom.
When it comes to piscatorial possibilities, the Brooklyn Port’s fish & chips will not disappoint. The long piece of fillet is fresh, thick and tender, with the golden brown exterior remaining crispy throughout the entire meal. The portion size is substantial. For extra oomph, you can go for the Devil’s Fiery Fish & Chips (S$16.90) with an added dose of paprika and spice.
If you have just had a heavy meal, I wouldn’t recommend the waffles for dessert. The waffle kinda disappoints with a dense cakey texture. The chocolate sauce, however, saves the day!
If your favourite snack is the Mars bar, get a grip because the deep-fried Mars bar will send you to the moon. It is crispy on the outside, and melted and gooey on the inside. So it isn’t the healthiest dessert out there. But those who can bear to indulge in this sinful dessert should totally do it.
The NYNY Cuppa Cheese is decadence in a cup; it is rich but not too heavy on the palate. I find the crackers served on the side a touch redundant, as the distinct Meiji fragrance from the crackers clashes with the richness of the cheesecake. I suppose the crackers are meant to replace the crumbly texture that cheesecakes usually have at the bottom layer but they make a rather poor substitute.
This child-friendly restaurant also has another attraction. Those with a sweet tooth will be thrilled to see free candy floss being given out to diners. You can even try your hand at making your very own fluffy candy floss at the candy floss machine! Even without ordering desserts, you can still end your meal on a sweet note!
