(Chop) sticky situation


I went to a running sushi restaurant with some friends the other day and we talked about how weird it feels for westerners to eat fish and rice with our fingers. We'd much rather learn how to use a new tool (chopsticks) than poke our fingers into raw fish, even if it would be MUCH easier.

All things considered, I still find it easiest to use a knife and a fork.

I've found that chopsticks are really good for eating lobster. The lobster meat from most places is fairly thin, and so you'd kind of have to mangle it a bit using a regular sized fork, and given that you generally dip it in butter, you can't use your hands. They usually give you these tiny forks, but when my girlfriend bought a lobster to cook at home, we had no such forks, but there were some chopsticks in the cabinet, and they did the job even better, I think.

Chopsticks are not as hard as they seem, it's only hard if you make it (I know, that sounds really cheesy).

Fun fact: not particularly weird for some cultures (especially the Eastern Mediterranean), because the concept of "finger food" is long established there.

I say we go full barbarian and use a fork.

Or a spoon.

After we cook it a little. Look, it'll smell lovely after.

If nigiri, like sushi, is served on a naked lady (nyotaimori), then you can be sure that I won't be using chopsticks... ;)
