Seaweed & Dog Meat


Recommended Posts

Seaweed and dog meat hold the biggest culinary difference between Cantonese and Koreans.

For seaweed, Cantonese considers it as the extremely "Yin" food. If a girl has an unwanted pregnancy, she will try to get rid of the fetus by constantly drinking seaweed soup. Cantonese believe that it will lead to a miscarriage.

But what about the Koreans? Korean customs believe that seaweed will help pregnant women recuperate. So they constantly eat seaweed soup before and after delivery.

For dog meat eating , the difference is more extreme.

Cantonese only eat dog meat under extreme cold weather. But Koreans only eat them in the hottest summer.
