Michelle Loo Mik-suet was an entertainment writer and editor for several local magazines and recently made the move to radio broadcasting, joining the roster of talk show hosts at Commercial Radio. What is your favourite restaurant in Hong Kong? 'Golden Valley in the Emperor hotel in Happy Valley for spicy Sichuan food. For western food I like Amigo in Happy Valley - the Napoleon cake is great.' What are your favourite restaurants in the world? 'Le Marche Movenpick in Toronto. You can get pretty much anything you like and the ambience is very nice. Also, this little barbecue restaurant in Taipei called My Place. I love their barbecued vegetables, especially the bitter gourds.' Which places do you like to visit for food? 'I like Guangdong for fresh seafood and Cantonese fried dishes. The food in Sichuan province and Shanghai is also wonderful. Another city I love is Tokyo, where you can find the best sashimi and ramen.' Do you miss any foods from Hong Kong when you travel? 'Fish ball noodles and won ton noodles. The ones in other countries are never good enough because they often use frozen ingredients.' What junk foods do you like? 'I love egg waffles and fried aubergine, green capsicum and deep fried tofu stuffed with fish paste. They bring back childhood memories.' Do you cook at home? 'I'm not a great cook, but I try to reproduce dishes I like when I'm with my family. Usually they come out pretty good so I guess my cooking sense is not bad.' Describe your perfect meal. 'A hot pot dinner with family or friends. When I was younger, we would often have hot pot in winter; it's a great time for a family gathering.'
