Giveaway! Ukihashi - The Restless Chopstick

As the temperature dips, we find ourselves indulging in bowl after bowl (after bowl) of ramen. It's a bit of a guilty pleasure around here - we've been stretching our noodle repertoire, dabbling in miso ramen and (a new favourite) mapo doufu ramen. It's the perfect way to warm your belly on a cool day.



Why all this talk of noodles? We're pretty devout chopstick users around here (don't even try to serve Elias a salad without a pair) and our favourites just happen to be the fantastic Ukihashi - Restless Chopsticks from Japanese design house +d.



Designed by Mikiya Kobayashi, these unique chopsticks point up at the tip eliminating the need for a chopstick rest and ensuring the eating tips never touch the tabletop. Because who wants to focus on keeping their chopsticks properly rested when there's a big bowl of deliciousness to devour?

Want to try Ukihashi for yourself? Pop on over to the shop and pick up a pair. We're also giving away 2 pairs in your choice of blue, yellow or white!

  4. This is the best idea especially for someone as anal as me. I'm a bit of a germaphobe (sp?). We eat almost everything with chopsticks too. Love them and these ones are so stylish. Using chopsticks to remove things from my toaster oven is my most favourite thing to use them for.
