Afternoon tea at the Raffles hotel

Instead of just being tourists at the Raffles hotel, we decided to experience it properly, so we went for afternoon tea at the Tiffin room.

We were welcome by a pyramid of sandwiches, cakes, madeleines and cupcakes. A waiter in a colonial outfit appeared to offer us different kind of tea, we picked mint tea which was delicious and really light.

Once we had tested all our sandwiches (the usuals eggs, cucumber, ham, tuna and salmon), dad and I moved on to the dumpling area.
Mum decided to give them a miss and went directly for the chocolate mousse! Very quickly, she also pointed us in the direction of some delicious raspberry and strawberry little wonders...
But the king of the day was the bread and butter pudding, its vanilla sauce and marinated mixed berries...

This is definitly the best way to experience the Raffles hotel (close competition with the sunday champagne brunch...)
As we were in need of a walk after that many desserts, we had a look around the hotel and the famous Long bar! (where the Singapore Sling was invented)
