Most Chinese people would have these chopstick etiquettes built into their memory, so we think that it is important for people of all backgrounds and cultures to understand it. That is why our Asian Fusion Darlinghurst restaurant will explain chopstick etiquette in China.
Our Asian restaurant in Sydney has formulated the perfect list of chopstick rules, so that you are ready the next time you visit China:
• Do not stick your chopsticks vertically into food when you are not using them, this symbolises death. In China, they burn incense in the same way after a family member has passed
• Do not stab or skewer food with your chopsticks
• If they are available to you, be sure to use the serving spoons or chopsticks
• Always remember that knives are considered as violent in China and the breakers of harmony. Be sure to not use them when eating with a Chinese family
• Do not tap on the bowl with your chopsticks, this action is associated with beggars
They are the main chopstick etiquettes that revolve around China. Don't worry though, at our Chinese restaurant in Darlinghurst you are free to do as you please.
Our Asian Fusions Darlinghurst restaurant is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.
