Using Chopsticks Like a Pro

How to Eat Rice With Chopsticks

It's most common to scoop rice into your mouth, holding the bowl close.

It is generally acceptable to lift a bowl close to your mouth and push rice and other food into your mouth with chopsticks. This is proper etiquette in Japanese, Chinese, Taiwanese and Vietnamese cultures. Do not do this in Korea however. There it's preferred to leave dishes on the table.
