Chopstick Tax Coming to China?

Actually, I don’t think this idea a bad one. I’ve thought of the disposable chopsticks Korea goes through and mused on similar ideas.

  1. I like the chopsticks at Suzi’s very much. So much that I asked Dan to get me a couple pair for one birthday. I think he got me more than just a couple pair. (Just like he got more than 1 or 2 of the $15 titanium sporks I wanted from REI on another occasion.) And they go through the dishwasher (top rack) very nicely. (And a lot cheaper than the titanium sporks.)

  2. Are they wood, hard plastic, or metal? Koreans boast how stainless steel chopsticks are unique to Korea, and I have to admit I haven’t seen the like of them elsewhere, and I personally do prefer them. But they’re ever so slightly different, technique-wise, I find, from the thicker wooden ones one finds elsewhere.

  3. Gord — I was at Tap Phong (Toronto’s main Chinatown’s biggest kitchen gear store) today, and made a point of checking for stainless steel chopsticks, since I was sure I’d seen them around. They have them there, made in China and packaged for the Japanese market, so they’re not Korea-only.

    I’m so used to our set of chunky indefinitely reusable wood ones that I’ll probably never change.

  4. Well, there you go! Made in China for Japanese market, huh? :) Weirdly, though, I didn’t see any in Japan, but then again, I was only there a couple of days.
