the fat olive- SHANGHAI
living in a city that loves greek food, it might surprise you that i never had a greek meal before. i was in shanghai this past winter holiday and my uncle took me to a greek restaurant and wine bar called the fat olive. i was super eager to try and was not disappointed that night. i loved everything about this place and would return in a heartbeat.
no reviews, just pictures to enjoy 🙂
