Looking for tips -- Malaysian

Jeremy Osner | Mar 25, 1999 12:10 PM

I've been eating a lot of Malaysian and Indonesian food
lately -- in fact I think that is the cuisine I have
eaten most frequently this winter. I was hoping someone
could give me tips about the etiquette of how to eat
Malaysian. For instance the noodle soups, like asam
laksa and prawn mee -- should I bite the noodles or
slurp them up? Should satay chicken be pushed off the
skewer and eaten with chopsticks, or eaten directly
from the skewer? I tend to make a bit of a mess, and it
embarrasses me slightly -- leaving a messy table to be
cleaned up.
