    How should you eat fish when dining in China?

    A:

    Diners in China who are served fish may find that the dish comes with a whole fish rather than a fillet; in these cases, the diner should eat the meat from the top half of the fish and, if he or she still wants to eat more, then remove the fish's skeleton using chopsticks in order to reach the bottom half of the meat. Diners should not flip the fish over on their plate in order to work around the fish's bones.
