Foreigners joining a Chinese dinner party should know and follow Chinese table manners. Before dinner you sometimes get a hot, damp cloth, with which you can clean your face and hands. It is a custom in China to have tea or other drinks before the meal is served. First, some cold dishes are provided, which are placed on a ground glass plate in the middle of the table. Rice or noodles are served and should not be mixed with other food. In Western countries people think chicken breast with its tender white flesh is the best part of the bird, while Chinese people are happier with a wing or leg. Chinese people prefer using chopsticks instead of forks and knives. It is allowed to use your hands when eating meat on bones. When the soup arrives at the end of the meal, a spoon is used. If the soup is very hot, foreigners like blowing to cool the soup. In China it is better to wait a little while. At a Dinner party Chinese people enjoy drinking beer or sprits.
