How and When to Use the 🍽️ Fork and Knife With Plate Emoji

  • If you’re texting someone that you’re out for dinner or that you’re having a fancy meal at a fancy place, anything, you can use 🍽️. For example, “Yooo. I’m waiting for my steak 🍽️. Where you at?”.
  • 🍽️ signifies a western way of eating. So, if you’re posting or reposting anything related to western food, western restaurants, etc.
  • Since 🍽️ signifies a full-course or main-course meal, this emoji would be more apt to use it for such food in reality as well (it would sit awfully in the caption for dessert-based posts).
  • Although 🍽️ does convey a western style of eating, it can be used in a generic sense as well – if you eat almost every meal with a fork and a knife or that’s just the Eurocentric way of eating you’re used to, etc.
