Having just seen Stephen Chow's fantastic film "God of Cookery" (should be required viewing at Chowhound U., by the way), I am reminded of that most elusive of Chinese dishes...
Buddha Jumping Over Wall (佛跳墙). I last had this dish a long time back in Asia. It was (as they say)... All that, and a bag of chips.
Yes, I know it takes 2 days to prepare properly, and would probably be astronomically expensive. But is there any restaurant in L.A. (or O.C. or S.D.) offering this dish on advanced order? And if so, is it any good?
As always, Thanks in Advance!
