Chinese eating habits by the best restaurant in Zetland

When you first embraced the Chinese culture, it would’ve been a bit of shock, mainly due to the difference it had between cultures. So let the best restaurant in Zetland explain some of the Chinese eating habits for you.

We think that one of the biggest differences with the Chinese is the fact that you are trading knives, and forks for chopsticks and spoons! It may take some practice to get use to it, but it sure is a good skill to have. A big difference between Chinese and Western food culture is that the Chinese share food from all the plates.

Something else to be weary of, is that if you’re invited out to dinner by Chinese host we recommend not eating too much throughout the day as you’ll be astounded at the amount of food ordered! In a formal dinner expect at least eight hot and cold dishes of each, while an informal dinner will contain roughly four hot and cold dishes.

In the Chinese culture, the host will normally pile the food into your bowl as a way of showing their politeness and hospitality. Just a tip, use both hands when accepting the food to say thank you and it is a sign of respect!

Now we think you’re ready to take on any Chinese dinner! So be sure to make a booking at the best restaurant in Zetland for any day of the week as we are open 7 days a week!
