So, I find there are times when I prefer chopsticks to forks and other times prefer forks to chopsticks. Often the preference is completely aesthetic other times utilitarian.

My question(s) to you:

Do you prefer chopsticks or forks? With what types of foods do you prefer to use these utensils with? Do you use chopsticks/forks purely for aesthetic, traditional merit or out of practicality?why?

I tend to favor chopsticks when I am eating any form of noodle, Soba noodles being my favorite. I generally use a fork for everything else and many of my cousins from Japan do the same.

I usually eat with chopsticks (even cook with them) unless it's too troublesome or is impossible to do so.

This really started because of aesthetics, but I've gotten so used to it that it's become a habit.

Forks...because I don't know the art of chopsticking.
I'd like to learn, someday. heh.

Fork mostly, unless any kind of "stir fry" is involved. I usually just use them with Stir Fry because I like to pick the pieces out individually and it seems easier with a chopstick. Occasionally for traditional merit I suppose because it feels 'cool' to do so, like in a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.

I use my fingers when eating Sushi. Those are the best tools! Home alone of course. That's why I bring the Sushi home instead!!

Uh oh a VS thread. Hope it doesn't get locked. :(
But I prefer chopsticks even though I suck ass using them. They are just so cool.

I use chop sticks with any meal I can. If it's stuff like chicken or steak, I'd probably use a fork.

I'm trying to learn how to work chopsticks, just for fun. But I'll stick with forks for now

Depends on what kind of food I have. I usually use chop sticks, but I find myself using a fork as well.

I use both, but it tends to depend in what I'm eating.

Chopsticks are more fun.

Usually eat with forks though.
