No visit to Fuzhou is complete without trying its most famous dish—Buddha Jumps Over the Wall. It's actually a traditional dish made of duck, chicken, pork, and seafood simmered in a Shaoxing wine jar with 20 other ingredients. The story goes that...

I was researching a good barbecue restaurant for a cold, winter night in Fuzhou. I found "Passion Burning Barbecue Lobster City." The reviews were only in Chinese, and my translation app described it as "do very delicious lobster, grilled squid...
Upper 3rd Rd, XueSheng Jie ChengShi GuangChang, Cangshan Qu, Fuzhou Shi, Fujian Sheng, China, 350007
Even in Fuzhou, China, there is the ancient struggle: Starbucks or an independent coffee shop. For me, there's no question. I love quirky little coffee shops like Sculpting in Time. So does the rest of Fuzhou, judging by the hipster clientele. The...
Meifeng Rd, Gulou Qu, Fuzhou Shi, Fujian Sheng, China, 350002
Ban Mian noodles (拌面 ) are a must-try when you're in Fuzhou. They're a simple dish, but what makes it unique is the sauce, which is made with peanut butter—an unusual ingredient in China. You can find Ban Mian at the restaurant listed, or on most...
30 Junzhu Rd, Mawei Qu, Fuzhou Shi, Fujian Sheng, China, 350015
The old dockyards on the outskirts of Fuzhou are worth a visit for naval or history buffs. They host old ships like a frigate from the 1940s. For 30RMB ($4.50), you can visit a museum that memorializes the Battle of Majiang and stroll around the...
W Ring Rd S, TaiJiang ShangQuan, Taijiang Qu, Fuzhou Shi, Fujian Sheng, China, 350004
Oyster pancakes? For breakfast? Strange but true, the oyster pancake (海蛎煎饼) is a common breakfast food for most Fuzhou natives. To me it's more of an oyster omelet—served in a paper bag. There's usually minced pork and green onion inside, plus...
193 County Rd, Jinan Qu, Fuzhou Shi, Fujian Sheng, China
If you enjoy bizarre activities like skiing on grass, lugeing on grass, weird Chinese zip-lining, and zorbing, you need to visit Fei Gorge. There are more than a dozen acres of artificial grass devoted to weird fun here. You'll also see more...
Fuqing, Fuzhou, Fujian, China
Most practicing Taoists are vegetarian, so it's no surprise that a Taoist temple would have great vegetarian food. The fare here is very simple: lots of steamed veggies with grains and rice, but it's healthy and filling. A meal is also very...

Chinese hot springs share a 1,000-year history dating back to the Tang Dynasty; their development and utilization has been a unique resource for relaxation and well being, especially in Fuzhou. Pools are kept at different temperatures, so there's...

1348 US-9W, Marlboro, NY 12542, USA
