The irrepressible Travelling Gourmet stays in the Fairmont Hotel in Raffles City. The rooms are very plush especially in the newly renovated wing, and I like the Nespresso machine with the tea packets and REAL milk capsules, not Coffeemate, so you can make your own Nespresso like George Clooney at anytime,..day of night! The plump pillows and firm beds are most comfy.
I like too the new Anti:Dote bar Lounge in the Lobby with cooool cocktails and nice snacks and cold cuts with Roggenbrot too. Prego just beside the lobby is very good with Chef Antonio and manager Christian, both are Italians. Very apt as Prego is one of my favourite italian restaurants in Singapore. The Italian Sunday Brunch is simply splendid! O Madonna! No need for dinner after the Sunday Brunch.
The big let down was the Spa. I went twice and both time I encountered totally naked men walking about...This is despite big signs saying "SWIMWEAR IS COMPULSORY IN THE SPA AREA" plastered everywhere. I told the management who actually did nothing! Most annoying! What is it with these people to walk about naked when they do not have the muscles of a bodybuilder. I told the people on duty, "Your people are not enforcing your signs and rules!"
Well, if they had been really toned, tanned and beautiful blond ladies with big eyes...like Cameron Diaz, I would have forced myself to endure the sight...Ha! Ha! :-) Dr. Michael Lim is The Travelling GourmetTM, a renowned Travel, Food and Wine Writer/Editor/Educator
