Sushi: Fingers or Chopsticks?

antrobin | Mar 21, 2008 09:13 PM

Do you eat sushi with your fingers or with chopsticks? All of the research I've done seems to indicate that sushi is traditionally a finger food and usually eaten with the fingers, picked up, raised to the mouth and consumed in one or two bites.

Because of this, I have always eaten sushi with my fingers--besides, it's easier! However, whenever I go out to a sushi bar, 95% of the clientele is using chopsticks.

So which is it?

Another pet peeve is going to a Thai restaurant where people eating non-noodle dishes insist on chopsticks. (Always white people, of course.)
