How to use spoon and fork to eat rice?

The main dish in Asian’s food are usually served with rice, which acts as the main food chain in our lives. But of course, it’s not perfect but I would also like to share on how you can eat rice with both fork and spoon.


Normally, with rice in front of us during mealtime, we can eat with either fork, spoon, chopsticks or even fingers, but of course it will be covered in later times.

To start with it, first is to have one of your hand to scope almost half of the spoonful of rice. (I’m a left-hander).


And of course to ensure everything is in place, it’s best to support with a fork on your other hand.

With that said and done, you are now ready to have your first taste of the rice. Enjoy!

    Hahaha this is too much for the table manners. Not many Asians don’t use spoon or fork to eat their rice. My Chinese colleagues uses their spoon to cut a spare ribs for many Filipinos, we enjoy eating barehanded – not in public tho.
