Dating back to the Qing Dynasty, Buddha Jumps Over the Wall is a Chinese delicacy known for its rich taste, a medley of choice ingredients—such as abalones, sea cucumbers, and mushrooms—and the many hours required to prepare it. The unusual name alludes to the dish's ability to temp a vegetarian monk to break his vows. When caught eating the dish, he maintains the dish so tasty that even Buddha would jump over the wall to eat it.
