I’m always sort of embarrassed asking for chopsticks when I’m at a Japanese restaurant. I can almost hear the server’s thoughts: “Stupid fucking Americans, shitting all over our customs.” Though I’d hear something more like “Ayaaaa ching chong hiiiih arigato Mr. Roboto.”
And in a way, we really are shitting all over their customs. And this Chopsticks Plus One and Two concept doesn’t do much to clean our image. Combining chopsticks, a spoon, a sauce bowl and toothpicks (the essential makings of any American dining experience) these chopsticks make eating Japanese food less traditional, but a hell of a lot easier.
