Thai food was traditionally eaten with right hand, but fork and spoon are now used generally. However, people in north and northeast Thailand usually have meals with sticky rice which allow them to frequently eat with their hand. Knife and chopsticks can be found on the table and are normally used for eating steak or noodle soups.
A variety of sauces and seasonings is commonly found on Thai dining table. These may include Nam Pla (fish sauce), Nam Pla Phrik (fish sauce with lime juice, chopped chili, and garlic), cayenne, sweet chili sauce, pepper, spicy chili sauce, ketchup, slice chili peppers in vinegar, sugar, or sometime even MSG.
