The term “Jumping Buddha”, comes from “Fo Tiao Qiang”, the phrase used in an uncommonly delicacy which means “the Buddha jumps over the fence”. It is a dish consisting of very unique, high quality ingredients. While being prepared, its aroma permeates the air so pungently that the Buddha would break out from his meditation and jump over the fence for a taste of such a delicacy.
