Every week's Chinese culture
China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam food is usually eaten with chopsticks; but it was the Chinese who were the earliest culture some five thousand years ago. Their food cooked in pots required twigs to remove it. Overtime, as population grew - people began chopping food into smaller pieces so it would cook more quickly thus minimizing the use of wood for cooking - twigs gradually turned into chopsticks

Some people think that the great scholar Confucius, who lived from roughly 551 to 479 B.C., influenced the development of chopsticks. A vegetarian, Confucius believed knives would remind people of slaughterhouses and were too violent for use at the table.

The use of chopsticks reflected chinese pragmatism and frugality in overcoming the difficulties of life. Famine, drought were common in ancient China; therfore food need to be shared between family members; picking only small morsels with chopsticks to accompany bowls of rice. (Fork-&-spoon would have enabled a user to take large portions - inconsiderate and selfish when food is scarce.)
Why do Chinese people use chopsticks?
We are not only a Chinese restaurant, we are a place to deliver Chinese cooking culture.
