Based on my very limited Chinese, my best guess is that the sign is saying “For health reasons, please don’t touch the food with your hands.” But how this becomes translated into ‘use teeths’ is a mystery. How is it more hygienic for customers to use their teeth to sample food as opposed to their hands? Do I really want to put something I shouldn’t touch into my mouth? Oh, the joys of Engrish when you know very little Chinese . . .

I thought it was against the rule to use your teeths when bobbing for apples… or whatever those things are. 🙂
