I have a bit of an inside joke about a friend of mine cant used chopsticks well. An acquaintance of mine got really snipy and told me with an attitude that it's meant to be eaten with hands.
So I thought that I fucked up but upon reading later I found that sushi, much like gumbo, was a commoners food initially and has risen more to the level of "cuisine".
So now I know that using hands WAS the traditional way and that now both hands and sticks are acceptable(generally anyway). But what would be a situation where I'd be more inclined to use my hands? Searching around mostly gives anecdotal shit that rolls either way.
if i wasn't allowed to use chopsticks to eat sushi then i'd use a spoon and fork because getting your hands dirty for the sake of some cheap meaningless etiquette is fucking nasty
oh, you say chips are meant to be eaten by digging your hand into the bag and getting all that oily flavor seasoning all over your fingers? no thanks i'll just use chopsticks
Do you have mozzarella hands that you can't take chips with just the tips of your two fingers and instead use your whole hand?
Same for sushi, except it's even easier and the algae doesn't dirty your hands in the first place.
are you actually telling me to eat with my hands like some kind of poor barbarian mongoloid?
i'll stick to civility, thanks
If you're so civilized then why are you implying you like Oreimo? You sound like a poor nigger in disguise who can't even afford chips and he's inventing excuses by posting that crap.
i'm a girl and i look like kuroneko in real life
i don't eat chips on a regular basis because i'm not a fatty lardo mcbigmac like you
When I was in Tokyo I went to one of the more expensive sushi restaurants, and a a conveyor belt sushi bar. In both people used hands.
Apparently sushi with chopsticks is mainly a habit found in (sometimes bastardized) sushi chains we have over here in the west.
Also in case you're not aware, sushi is not limited to rice rolled in seaweed sheets, and nigiri (those molds of rice with meat on top) should be eaten with hands.
