A chopstick rest is used to keep chopstick tips off the table and to prevent used chopsticks from contaminating or rolling off tables. It is quite popular in Japanese and Chinese resturants. The most chopstick rest you might see are probably just a plain ceramic block with a curving surface to hold your chopstics. But that should not be the case, there are many other playful and eye-catching designs you can find. Here are some of our favorites designs, although the no-face mouth version is a bit creepy.
