Cantonese especially like to drink soup. As a native Cantonese, I am no exception. Some people cook soup every day. I drink soup at least once a week. If I don’t cook soup for a week, I feel like I lack something. Some friends are not used to drinking soup before meals in Guangdong for the first time, but after a long time, they also like to drink soup, but they are not used to it without soup, so many people say that Cantonese know how to keep healthy. How to put it? Since I was a child, I have always had soup, sugar water and herbal tea three times a week at home, so I have been in good health since I was a child, and I have seldom caught a cold. I may have developed my habit since I was a child, and I also like to drink soup very much.
