Some Asians do. smily_headphones1.gif Koreans use spoons. Seems easier.

Point taken. Cantonese people use chopsticks this way.

 

Actually my preference is for Thai style eating, with a fork in the right hand and the spoon in the left. It really is the best way to eat anything saucy with rice.

Picking grains of rice out of the sauce on the plate is good chopstick practice, too!

Sounds like culinary torture.

 

In the attempt to transfer the food to the mouth, fingers are the natural way to go.

 

Except for liquids, then straws are the proper utensil.

 

Primitive but effective.

I just realised the Harmon Kardon CL comes with two headbands, one large and one small. The small one is attached out of the box and is apparently too small for most heads.

 

This explains why every single time I tried a pair on for demo I thought it was preposterously designed and never fit properly.

 

Now I'm actually intrigued enough to really give'em a proper demo.

It'd be hilarious if the fur has an affect on the acoustics due to diffusing the sharp edges of the housing.

Actually, many Asians do eat rice off plates or bowls with chopsticks because using both a spoon and chopsticks is inconvenient. I always eat food with my hands or chopsticks only, unless I'm eating soup, porridge, or thick steak. Furthermore, most Japanese people eat soup with chopsticks, something even a fellow Asian like me doesn't understand.

Knocks off that 6KHz peak like magic.

I actually eat with a spoon with the left hand and chopsticks with the right hand (if a spoon is available). I am fine with chopsticks alone but a spoon is an extra utility. Of course, we also use spoon & forks with meals.

 

edit: I absolutely detest slim, flat, metal chopsticks. No offence but every Korean restaurant I've been to uses those. Is it a thing in Korea? Japanese, Chinese, etc eateries use either the disposable wooden ones or plastic chopticks.

I use Fork and Spoon in left hand. I eat with Chopstick in my right. I'm left handed though. When using a Fork and Knife I tend to keep busy using both hands lol (I'll use the knife to help scoop up rice onto the fork, etc.

Don't use chopsticks at all. Never have. I am of European extraction.

Knife, fork, and spoon are the go.

If you can't use them successfully go fingers....

We call that eating "Hawaiian Style" (eating with hands lol). In all seriousness though we'd only eat like that with finger foods :P.

I'm of Northern European extraction and lived in a sufficiently isolated part of the U.S. that I never had Asian food until I was in my twenties. I am still comfortable with chopsticks.

Ancestry and heritage has nothing to do with being able to use chopsticks.
