    We've just finished our evening meal of stir fry and as usual I used chopsticks and the wife used a fork. To be honest I don't know why I prefer to use sticks. Maybe because of how easy it is to pick up individual morsels of food or something.

    So when you have Chinese food what do you all prefer to use?

    Sticks, but only if I'm not very hungry.

    I discovered that that is the reason why Chinese people are so thin... trying to eat rice with chopsticks!

    Chopsticks for sure! My parents taught me how to use them when I was about 6 and I always use them if they are available :D

    Definitely only chopsticks when it is Chinese food. Always. I could not even IMAGINE having Chinese food with a fork.

    I went to a japanese buffet tonight. I love sushi and went to town chowing down on it using chopsticks of course. After a couple plates of that I got a slab of roast beef. I sat down, picked up the chopsticks then went "Uh oh". Had to digress to the steel implements...
