Some restaurants will have forks on hand to accommodate tourists. Most restaurants only carry chopsticks, so it is best to know the proper etiquette. For instance, sticking your chopsticks straight into your food is inappropriate as it means that the food is an offering for the deceased. If you are having trouble using the chopsticks, make sure you don’t stab the sticks into your food and never use your chopsticks to point. It is considered bad etiquette.
