Eating Utensils

Sat Feb 17, 2001 8:45 am

How come in a restaurant that serves Western Style food, you never get a pair of chopsticks when you ask for one? Whereas in a restaurant that serves Eastern Style food (Oriental), you can get forks and knives when ever you want? Not Fair!

Well, western restaurants are catering to western people, so are the oriental resturants (sp??) in the western world. Thats why. Woulnd't you guess chinese (sp?) rests. in China carry only chop sticks, yet western rests. in China carry both chop sticks and spoons, forks, etc? I bet thats the case.

It seems all right to me  Smile

And if we really want to be profound, I fear that we'll get into all this Colonialist or possessive-investment-in-Whiteness stuff, so I'll just say it seems all right.  Big thumbs up
