    Chinese Takeout: Chopsticks?

    A big pet peeve of mine from Hollywood is that every time someone's eating Chinese food they're eating it out of the container with chopsticks. I never would do that and have never really seen anyone do it. The only thing I use chopsticks for is sushi.

    If I'm eating at a place I'll **** with it, especially if they only have chopsticks in front of me(check out the white guy asking for a fork). I'm really good with them so it's not anything to do with that.

    Also I guess I'll place this here though it's been around for a while:


    Never done it though.

    nope. I only use chopsticks when I am out so I don't look like a lazy American. Which I am

    I thought you were going to say that you've never seen anyone eat out of the stereotypical Chinese take out container. Because I haven't.

    My whole family uses chopsticks when we eat Chinese. I don't. I think it's stupid. The fork is easier to use and make eating more enjoyable. Why would I make things tougher to eat?

    I see those containers all the time, usually the rice comes in them while entrees have moved toward plastic containers.

    Yeah, they're really just to go containers. Pretty normal unless it's a combination or lunch special.

    yeah, take out has those containers, but never seen a place serve it to you in those containers when you order in.

    I meant take out

    Obviously they dont serve it that way in a restaurant. But I have literally never seen a Chinese takeout in those container except for rice occasionally. Every Chinese I have ever gotten takeout in my life comes in normal take out containers that every restaurant has

    They used to put lo mein and **** like that in those boxes. Pint or quart, now it's small or large. You'd dump out the noodles onto a plate and they'd still be shaped like a cube. Chopsticks are stupid.

    Yes, they do come in those boxes if the orders aren't big enough. Big orders comes usually in those Styrofoam containers, but the white boxes are still around especially for leftover to-go situations. Whether it's Chinese, Thai, Khmer, Vietnamese, sometimes Korean though very rarely, those white boxes will likely be used. White steamed rice usually comes in those boxes. My friends would sometimes order bunch of individual rice orders and couple dishes and we would eat straight out of those boxes. No need to bust out some plates and the sauce gets soaked up to the bottom till the last shove in your mouth goodness. Chopstick? Fork and/or spoons? You usually get a mixed of those. Maybe it's just regionally, but chopsticks are widely used here in LA/Hollywood/SoCal. If you don't know how to use it, ask for fork and spoons and nobody bats an eye.

    People who eat rice with chopsticks annoy me. I mean, how many ****ing rice grains can you get at one time?

    really? I have seen those boxes for take out before a number of times. Come to think of it, I think the only time I have seen those boxes was for rice, noodles, or some other carb they just pack in there.
