I am posting this discussion when I was asked by one of the member here that how I eat my noodles! Though I use spoon or fork to eat my noodles, I know how to use Chop Stick to eat them and I am quite proficient in using them! How do you have your noodles...do you use Spoon, Fork or Chop Sticks? Please respond! Thanks! [Picture: from Pexel: A site giving permission to use the pictures anywhere on internet]

Well I could use them yes, but here of course it is forks. I learned to use chop sticks in my teen years.

When I eat spaghetti I use a fork (I am Italian), when I eat Chinese noodles I use chopsticks.

@AKRao24 No, we do not use chopsticks in Italy. I learnt to use chopsticks eating in Chinese restaurants.

I like eating with chop sticks. It's fun. Can be a bit frustrating though when you pick up the food and it falls right back onto the plate. And you try again and again and same result. Some chopsticks are slippery. Have no idea why they make them that way.

Yes, I understand that, that's why I am insisting that practice is the key to success here! I love to use chopsticks to show off my family members that I know the trick and pass the time in fun filled frolic way! Thanks dear @lovebuglena !

@AKRao24 I don't think I am holding the chopsticks the right way. But I am able to eat with them so it doesn't matter I guess.

My Boss always believes in one thing - he says he never wants to know how we have achieved the success, if we fail then he asks us to review the the things for ourselves. similarly if can manage to eat with chop sticks by using your own style where is the problem? May be this could be one more style of handling the Chopsticks in future dear @lovebuglena !! Thanks!

I have used chopsticks all my life - so yes, I do eat noodles with chopsticks. But funny I eat Italian type pastas/noodles only with a fork (but I know I CAN eat them with a chopstick if I chose to!).

Nice to know about your expertise in using Chopsticks and also the fork! I also mostly use fork or spoon instead of Chopsticks while having noodles here! Thanks dear @much2say!

No we don't have noodle dishes dear @much2say , but semolina is prepared like noodles by some people in India, What all we get here is instant noodles which were introduced by a company some 30 or 35 years back! Before that no body had any idea about noodles in India! Thanks!

Most times I use either a fork or spoon to eat noodles with. I think I tried using chopsticks one time for noodles when the knit group went to a sushi restaurant here in town. I know that it isn't a good idea to dip rice while using chopsticks into a sauce because it just falls apart!

Yes dipping chop sticks in the soup with rice makes the situation bit embarrassing especially if you are not trained...dear @bluerubymoon53 ! Thanks!

Well there is no problem in eating them with fork. You can learn using Chopsticks if are interested as it is not a rocket science! I too learned it out of curiosity within a short time.It takes practice to achieve perfection! Thanks dear @prashu! Have a great day!

Yes indeed, but the fun is to tackle it , initially I also used to have the difficulty in picking the rice with chop sticks , but then with little practice today I can eat rice also! Thanks dear @TRBRocks420! Thanks!

I'm pretty bad at using chopsticks and too lazy now to persevere so it's a fork for me.

I'm not an expert, but I have traveled quite a bit in China. My brother in law was happy to teach me the correct way to use chopsticks. Sometimes I prefer to eat with them, but most of the time I don't.

Nice to know that you tried to learn it from your brother in law when you were in China. In fact there is a slight difference between Japanese and Chinese a far as usage of Chopstick is concern.Both methods are efficient and can be learned easily! Thanks dear @houda28 ! Have a nice time!
