Panchan as the main tradition of the cuisine of South Korea

Speaking about the cuisines of the world, I’m here for the past three years distinguish Korean, as the most of favorite Asian. The sharpness of the fire-breathing, fresh vegetables, tender fish and meat with thin crust — it may seem that Korean cuisine is a cross between Japanese and Chinese cooking, however, it is not so. Korean cuisine is generally a kind of apart from them. One of the key differences — panchan.

Usually, making an order in any Asian restaurant, you hardly expect to see something besides the dish itself, except that in some establishments you will be offered chilled water. In Korea is different. Here at the family cafe, barbecue restaurants, small institutions at fish markets and especially in good restaurants before serving the main course caring hands will serve panchan (반찬).

What is this strange and incomprehensible?

Panchan is a generic notion, which in Korea meant a set of various appetizers and salads. They are served in small bowls in the amount of six pieces.

And yet, for the Japanese family takes the main place in life. It is sacred. But the betrayal by her husband is not regarded as something immoral, something we cannot say about his wife’s infidelity. When you marry, it is preferable that the girl was a virgin. Although nowadays this condition is not mandatory, but Japanese society still condemns sexual relations before marriage. The wife should not be jealous of a spouse and tolerates all his Hobbies. Sexual relations between spouses in a Japanese family, very rare.

Walls and partitions in Japanese homes so thin, just need silence in order not to disturb others, and so what to speak of the passionate sighs of love. A place for solitude are love hotels where it is possible to anonymously rent a room by the hour. Unfortunately, these hotels are increasingly Continue reading

What are the most bizarre Japanese tradition?

Japan has many customs that to us seem strange, but if you think about it, they have deep meaning and they are for the Japanese force of law.

Europeans unaccustomed constant talk about Japanese food, and at mealtime they all talk only about how good the food is. It is considered very rude if a boy said while eating “Oishi” (delicious) at least two or three times.

The Japanese eat everything that swims in the sea, including dolphins. Dolphin meat tastes very different from fish, it is sometimes even eaten raw. You can cook the soup; a popular dish from Dolphin meat – “koseki”, something like a kebab.

Perhaps eating a lot of seafood is the reason that the woman with overweight is an extremely rare phenomenon.

Tipping in Japanese restaurants is considered an insult. Client hereby gives to understand that he is above the waiter. But if he paid exactly what is written in the score – they are equal.

In Japan, earthquakes happen often, it happens that the store or the apartment opened, no one. But to come in and take something that is considered a very big sin.
