Table Manners
Be rather relaxed in Hong Kong, although there are some etiquette rules. If in doubt, observe what others do. For sitting at the table, wait till you are offered a seat, and preferably wait till your host has started to eat or invites you to start the meal. As in China, the dishes are most often laid at the center of the table on a turn-table and it will be acceptable to taste everything. It is common to use chopsticks but as a foreigner it is alright to ask for a fork and knife. In South China as in Hong Kong, it may be common to wash the chopsticks and bowl (serving dish) with tea offered on the table. Wait and observe before drinking this tea because it is for cleaning and not to be served as a drink.
