Chinese Dining Etiquette – Slurping and Burping

From a very young age, American children are taught not to make noises such as slurping or burping at the table while dining.  In the Chinese culture, these sounds are considered compliments to the host when made while dining.

For example:

1.  To make a slurping sound while eating soup either from a bowl or spoon is a compliment to the chef.

2.  Burping after the meal means the meal was very good and most satisfying.
