There’s nothing quite like indulging in a little Chinese takeout every now and then. For those of us who like to be a little more adventurous, we’ll even have a go at eating our chow mein with the chopsticks they kindly provide!

But, you’d be wrong. That bit you break off chopsticks actually has a purpose. Prepare to have your mind blown!
