Eating and Meals Etiquette

Eating and Meals Etiquette

culture religion & ethnic 4

  • Most Indonesians are Muslim and consume no liquor or pork.
  • Fingers are still used for eating in some places.
  • The left hand is used for personal ablutions and is therefore considered unclean.
  • Don’t hand something to another person with your left hand, especially food or drink
  • If your right hand is occupied, switch the item to your left prior to receiving an object.
  • If you’re forced, due to circumstances, to hand something to someone with your left hand, acknowledge the unavoidable cultural slight by saying “Maaf, tangan kiri.” (Sorry, I had to use my left hand).
