In the age of Covid, especially Omnicron, I am eating less and less in restaurants and eating more take-away in my hotel room and using food delivery.
But sometimes, they forget things like utensils or basic seasoning. So, I now carry, and actually have been carrying, a set of lexan cutlery (knife, fork, spoon) for awhile. They are allowed in carry on because they are plastic. I used to also carry a small plastic plate but found I used it less and less. The lexan is strong so it won't break. It's lso washable and reusable. I've had my current set for over 2 years.
Some will also pack chopsticks. There are also combo kits available online and in sporting goods stores. (Camping section.)
I will also pick up packets of salt and pepper from any fast food or takeaway place and put them in a small snack sized ziploc bag.
All of the above weighs virtually nothing.
I also carry an immersion heater and cup so I can make a cup of coffee or tea in my room.
Anyone else do this or take something different?
