Bubbles in your coffee?

Bon Appetit has a list of common food superstitions in  various countries around the world. Have you heard of these superstitions? What are some superstitions from Japan or another country/culture you are studying? For example, I’ve heard people say about osechi ryori (New Year’s celebratory dishes) that kazunoko (herring roe) is supposed to increase fertility. And the pun on tai/omedetai (tai = sea bream, and omedetai = happy occasion) is one everyone in Japan knows.
