Chicken Pad Thai
Thai People generally consume noodles with a Chopstick. However, I have still not acquired that skill. Hence, I prefer using my Normal Spoon and Knife. Their dining etiquette include leaving little food on the plate which shows that their stomach is full and would not like to eat anymore. However that little food should not be rice and is considered as wastage. Thai people never lick fingers no matter how tasty the food is. And they never consume the last bite on the serving plate. Guess what ,Thai Food is so tasty but they never dare to ask for second serving. They would patiently wait to be asked.
