Raffles

Tiffin at Raffles, Singapore's historic hotel, was delightful. Lots of interesting curries and curious salads, waiters bringing fresh nan whenever you run short, and a lamb chop worthy of Galsworthy. Expensive for Singapore, but no worse than our favorite Melrose fish place.

I'm fond of visiting hotels where fiction once took place. Raffles. The St. Francis. The Del Coronado. The Mamounia. People come, people go, nothing ever happens.
