Miranda Hung is a Hongkonger who works in the insurance industry. As with many, travel is a passion and in recent years she has been to France and Japan. Although mainly in Paris for the museums and sights, Hung managed to get some good meals in. One night she took a sightseeing tour down the River Seine on a bateau mouche, or slow boat. The deal not only included a show and the chance to see the Eiffel Tower, among other sites, but also dinner. On a trip to Tokyo, mainly to buy hi-tech goods, Hung visited the Tsukiji fish market to eat sashimi. 'It was still alive,' she says. 'When you cut the squid or the scallops, they're still moving. It's very fresh!' Hung enjoys dining out with colleagues and recently visited the Italian restaurant W52, where she was impressed by the antipasti buffet and a vinaigrette dip for the bread that was made from top quality olive oil and a 15-year-old vinegar that had become sweet as it had aged. For her main course she had a pork-loin scaloppine with sauteed artichokes and button mushrooms. 'The pork was very soft and tender,' says Hung.
