Chopsticks, fork and knife, bare hands.... depends on the kind of food. The right tools for the right foods, I'd say. Some foods are ideally suited for eating with bare hands (like lots of Indian foods) and you wouldn't really enjoy eating them in any other way.

It's a bit like asking, "which tools do you prefer to use: screwdriver or pliers or scissors"?

Do any Chinese people here think using chopsticks is easier, or a fork and knife?



yes, i do. I prefer chopsticks to spoons, especially when we eat fish and food with bones. Certainly, i can't use chopsticks when drink soup.

Hey, i ate out today and the server gave me chopsticks but no spoon, and I had soup. I really would have been ok with just picking up the bowl and drinking out of it, using chopsticks for the chunks, but I looked around and saw other soup-eaters all with spoons, so I got a spoon.
Is it ok to drink soup from the bowl (a small bowl of very clear soup)? At home I would.
I am not rich.  :L

Fish

Eating fish - floating in fish soup - with chopsticks is difficult

even Chinese people seem to end up pecking at it like sea birds!

Also some every slippy round balls can be hard to pick up - the white ones, look like ping-pong balls.

For other kinds of food it is easy, even for me as a foreign barbarian with barbarian hands and simple brain
"We know it's weakness, but the weakness is so strong!"
