Why do Americans insist on using chopsticks whenever they eat any sort of Asian food? Everyone in Europe just eats with a fork and knife and the Asian restaurant owners don't care.

it's because it's all part of the asian experience
chopsticks require more mindfulness, you have to look at what you're doing more and thus be aware of what you're eating and appreciate it more
spoons and forks resemble shovels and pitchforks, they are perfect tools for people to thoughtlessly move material into their mouths while driving or watching tv
americans sometimes want to get away from that style of eating because of how pervasive it is here

Forks and knifes are the most versatile and efficient eating utensils. There's no food that can't be eaten with a fork and knife whereas there's a lot that chopsticks can't do.

american chinks hate them. its their petty revenge that asians are really prone to. They give you chopsticks or make you eat pecking duck while hiding behind the counter and laughing at the "white devil" dishonoring himself with ungraceful dining. Then they gather in their little apartments and share these stories with a cup of wrm plum wine or some beetlejuice. And the more dishonor their customers get, the more honor is brought to their ancestors, who, being taoist, are in hell. Its the same for tea by the way and i bet sake, silk trade and pottery

It is not just Americans. People from all over the world do that. In Europe too. It is of the interest of Asian restaurants to have customers eat with chopsticks because it provides a unique ambient that differentiates them from other places.

I don't see what is the problem with people eating asian food with chopsticks.

I lived in China for a decent amount of time and would be forced to use chopsticks whenever I ate at a restaurant and eating out is a huge cultural thing in China. Everyone eats out at least one time per day because it’s very affordable and you literally can’t find spoons and shit unless you’re at some international restaurant. I knew how to use chopsticks since I was a young kid living in America but never used them unless I had to like when I lived in China. I mastered it and it became my norm. When you can eat rice efficiently with them you know you’ve mastered the technique. Of course when I moved back to the US, I went back to using fork and spoons but I can’t help it sometimes if I’m in a Chinese restaurant I just use the chopsticks because my brain registers chopsticks when I’m eating Chinese food. The Chinese workers or other guests think its quite amusing and when they find out I know how to speak mandarin I’m like a celebrity for the moment.

They don't.
You don't have to ask for chopsticks or cutlery, either/or at most tables in America. They're both on the table already or offered. No cheapness.

Chopsticks are an acceptabl way to share appetizers without touching other items on the plate. It's like the child's game of Operation, and if you're good at not getting the buzzer you're not cross contaminating with the people you are dining with. You can reverse the sticks to make the unlicked ends as your serving spoon too, place on your plate and then enjoy after turning your sticks around. Getting a serving spoon sometimes requires a prompt of your waitstaff.
Chopsticks are also a way to enjoy something that is more than 1 actual bite, because it's taboo to bite off food and hold the second half in your fork in the air, but perfectly ok etiquette while holding it together in the grip of some chopsticks.
It doesn't fall apart. Not all food is bitesize, like a shumai.

>Everyone in Europe just eats with a fork and knife and the Asian restaurant owners don't care.
Really? Everyone only uses cutlery? That sounds exaggerated and so not true.
You don't speak cantonese or whatever, so I know you don't really pretend to understand the kind of talk disrespectful restaurant staff can and does say about their patrons. They talk shit, for sure and they're judging your manners, your clothing, and your lack of apparent class, just not to your face. They're from class societies. People not caring about controlling how you eat is one thing, but finding your manners acceptable is another. Chinese people eat like pigs, fact, but Japanese people are offended and extremely judgy, if you don't respect their ways of dining.

Do whatever you want, and if you want a spoon at the same time as chopsticks, with your long noodles, and to hold them both overhanded like a toddler, you live your life by your rules!
