Do you typically eat with western cutlery, chopsticks, or something else?

I personally try to each with chopsticks but there are just some foods where ain't nobody got time for that.

      Chopsticks, for sure! I prefer to use them whenever I can as I grew up using them, since I was raised in a Chinese household.

      Chopsticks are unnecessarily complicated and I have no idea why anyone who isn't culturally attached to the idea of them would ever use them over a fork.

      I mean I don't think that they're that complicated sure it's more than just "pick up and stab" but for things like noodle dishes I find them easier and western cutlery slowly destroys plates as well. :(

      Edit: Also removing bones from things

        Both. Chopsticks are easy and cooler to use. Though I use a fork more often

        I actually use forks as spoons a lot of times too.

        Can't do any of that with sticks.

          Chopsticks can pick up or stab food items. Every once in a while there's something akin to a slippery dumpling that is the right size to pick up to yet to difficult to grasp so impaling it is the best option. Western cutlery will only damage a plate if to much force is used, so cut with care.

          I only use chopsticks if I'm out at an asian restaurant, which is every couple months.

          It depends on what I'm eating. I enjoy using both, but some things are better suited for a fork/knife/spoon and some are better for chopsticks.

          I really wish all restaurants had chopsticks though. Sharing appetizers with a bunch of little bite-sized pieces would be so much better with chopsticks than awkwardly picking stuff up with forks and less messy than picking it up with your hands. :(

            I prefer western, but chopsticks are pretty cool. It's nice that they differ in usage, letting chopsticks remain relevant.

              This definitely depends on your meal. SOme foods are more suited to chopsticks while others are very difficult to eat that way. The same can be said of forks.

                For me it depends on my mood, if I'm lazy, I'll use fork and when I'm not, I'll use chopstick even when eating rice.

                Most of the time it'll be forks. I only use chopsticks during dinner or when I'm having sushi.

                I'm gonna be honnest, I voted chopsticks but that was before I read the thread. Yeah. So I guess in an everyday, it's forks and stuff. But if I'm eating Sushis or noddles, I prefer chopsticks. I own both of the answers.

                  Eating with chopsticks is a lot of fun, but I have nothing to warrant it. Like I don't even eat chicken fingers or meatballs or snacks out of a jar or anything to play around with them, but I'm quite skilled with them since I've been using them with Asian food for 25+ years.

                  Still haven't learned to use chopsticks....people have shown me but alas I am a failure :< so the usual forks and spoons for me, regardless of what food.

                  I mean, definitely depends on the cuisine - I'm not busting out the chopsticks to eat spaghetti

                  I am Asian though, so meals at home are usually eaten with chopsticks. I'm not actually good at using them, and my dad did not notice/inform me until I was like 13, then tried to "correct" the way I hold chopsticks but like dude I had been eating like this for at least 10 years at that point, not that easy to change

                  Wait, there’s a correct way to hold them? How was your form different?
