Utensil rack in Beijing cafeteria

As a Westerner who needs a knife, fork and spoon (and sometimes fingers) to get food from my plate to my face, I appreciate the dexterity and simplicity of eating with chopsticks. It’s impressive. However, the above dining utensil option of chopsticks and only chopsticks, means that I’m looking at a long, slow meal, and most likely noodles in my lap.
