Hi all, were cooking Thai for some friends at the weekend, and have just realised we have no idea where to get chopsticks from locally, does anyone know of anywhere?

Nearest place I can think of is the big Chinese supermarket on the North Circ just north of Hanger Lane Gyratory

Else you could ask the local Chinese restaurants/takeways if they will sell you some?

Good advice, I think the norm is spoon and fork.

Thai is not normally eaten with chopsticks. Indeed, the fork/spoon combo is normally used; however the fork is only ever used like a knife to move food on to the spoon and should never be used for eating off.


I used to be with it. But then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems scary and weird.

I have plenty of Korean chopsticks if you want some.
 
They are very different to Chinese style ones and I find them much easier to use, but then I use them 3 or 4 times a week.
 
They are also Stainless steel so can go in the diswasher too.
