chopsticks?

When you eat chinese or other asian food.. do you use your chopsticks?. I do, have been years.. and I'm pretty good at it. Or, are you one of those conventional fork-users? What kind of asian/chinese/japanese/thai food do you like?

Yes. I always use chopstix when eating asian (cept indian and such) ... and quite often at home, too.

I love all asian cusines. Tops for me are Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Korean, Indian and Indonesian.

I like to use chopsticks! For some reason when I eat with chopsticks the food seems to taste better. Don't ask me why LOL

I like Chinese food and most Asian foods. I would like to try more Japanese food because I have only really had sushi and sushami.

I use chopsticks. I learned how to use them in the fifth grade. That year we had to do reports on countries. Along with the report you had to bring in a food from that country. The exception was that whoever did China would teach everyone how to use chopsticks. They would make popcorn and that is what we would eat with our sticks. The rule was that once you finished your popcorn you could have more, so I learned real quick :)

As for what type of asian/chinese/japanese/thai food I like, well I haven't found any I don't like. Bring it on, I will eat it!

I use a fork but I will try to use the chopsticks when I am home. The problem is that I can't seem to make it to my mouth with the food. :oops: I love Chinese & Japanese food!
