I did that, if i ate fried chicken with rice i will do that, very delicious for me and you can eat all your chicken until you can see the bone very clearly. Some food are will be a better taste if you eat with your hands, without spoon or fork.

I need not to check your profile to know where your from. I enjoy eating using bare hands, but I rarely do that nowadays. It all depends on the dish.

Hi, Its really great to know aout you all who have eaten with their hands. I as an indian, share the same customs of eating with hand. Its real fun. Initially i found it too tough but now i find eating with a spoon is tougher at times. hehehehe. Now i mange both. Though i prefer using fork for rice and ot a spoon. Probably thats my style as chinese eat noodles with stiks.

It is our tradition to have food/meals in bare hand, served in a plantain leaf, preferably sitting on the ground. We wash out hands and legs, before meals.

That's the best way for me to eat, with barehands. Especially when you have dried fish, smoked or whatever, and then it has to go with tomatoes, yummm! taas mo pa paa mo!

Hai, I am from south India. This is nothing new to us. Usually we eat food with our hands only with out using spoons or forks. This is our tradition and culture also. In all our social /religious functions we follow the same thing. Food is served on a plantain leaf. When it comes to liquid food like soups/ kheer, we my go for staws/spoons etc which is also very much optional.

Yes, I have. I have friends from Somalia and Egypt who taught me the art of eating without using utensils. You've got to practice very well with hot foods - LOL!
