The restaurant within JIA hotel in Shanghai where I’m staying features a restaurant that’s highly recommended. It’s called Issimo. It’s Italian, which is odd choice of food, considering, I’m far from home in Asia, but this place doesn’t disappoint. First off, it was filled, and you’re supposed to reserve ahead of time. Being a last second person, it was a “kitchen” seat which is basically a front row to the kitchen counter seat.
Grilled vegetables on a skewer with cheese on top. I don’t eat dairy products, so I opted to not have any on it. But in the end, cheese and pork fat, are just about the same, except the pork fat won’t make me sick.
