Why Do People Like Abalone? It's Not That Tasty, Other Seafoods

are better tasting and much cheaper
I dont see why people waste their money on expensive abalone? you can get other types of seafood that actually taste better and cost much less money.

fied squid / calamari

jumbo prawns

lobster

scallops

oysters

abalone tastes chewy and not that good, I'll take lobster or calamari over abalone any day.

second that.

to me, abalone tastes like normal fish cake (:

i'd rather go for oysters/mussels etc.

too chewy, i didn't even knew it was a big snail until i read about it on soompi.

People eat these either to show their status in society (Since i eat abalone, therefore i must be wealthy) or purely they believed ablaone is very nutritional. In reality, a banana has more nutritional content then an oversize snail anyday.

^ LOL now I will never look at abalone the same way again.

I'm indifferent about abalone. I'd eat it if it's served but I wouldn't order it lol. It really does seem overrated.

eeeh,go eat better abalones. lol,i am joking. but abalones taste awesome,no offense. if we're talking about status/wealth, ppl eat foire gras for petes sake. and thats actually a messed-up duck liver...so u tell me...

i don't like lobster much,crab pwns it any day. (but BC crabs are wayyyy too tasteless in my opinion.)
