Do you know what could make Buddha jump over a wall?
According to a Chinese saying, it is a special stew made of seafood and poultry. It is apparently so yummy that even Buddha (or at least Chinese monks) would jump over a wall to taste it. It might not be true for Tibetan monks, as this dish originates from Fujian Province; their taste may be different. Anyway, one of the characteristics of the preparation is that all the ingredients have to slowly simmer for a long long time over a low flame. It is said the former U.S. President Ronald Reagan, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia and many others tasted the delicacy, while in China. President Xi Jinping recently mentioned the famous dish: “make friends, the way that one slowly cook seafood and poultry stew to make ‘Buddha or monks jump over the wall’.”[Source]
