#23 – The Buddha Jumps Over the Wall soup – $190
Funny name for a bowl of soup, but not any soup, but expensive soup. The Buddha Jumps Over the Wall soup is offered on the menu of a restaurant in London called Kai Mayfair.
The main ingredients of this soup are Japanese flower mushrooms, huan ham, sea cucumber, dried scallops, chicken, abalone, ginseng, shark fin, and pork, of course.
But the people lucky enough to eat this delicious meal, if we consider the ingredients, won’t be able to eat it the same day they order this soup. The average number of days from ordering this meal to actually putting it into your mouth is five days. Why that? Probably the chef has to go to the sea to fish for sharks.
