The best restaurant in Parramatta tell you about Chinese chopstick etiquette
Let’s go back through history and take a look at chopsticks and where they came from. No one knows exactly when the chopstick was invented, but in ancient times they were called ‘Zhu’ and were solely invented because it was difficult for them to dip vegetables in the soup with spoons. The best restaurant in Parramatta will let you in on a few of the chopstick etiquettes to be weary of.
First and foremost, chopsticks should never stand upright in your bowl, as it is a gesture used to pay respect to deceased family members. So always be sure to place your chopsticks back on the chopstick holder. Did you also know that is was considered bad manners for you to make noise with chopsticks as well?
We know that chopsticks are not an easy utensil to use and that frustration with a piece of food can lead to some serious stabbing just to pick it up. Always be sure to take your time and pick up the food properly.
One last tip before we sign off, to signal that you are done with your meal, simply put your chopsticks across your bowl.
