Use travel utensil sets

Buy a set of utensils in a pouch to travel and use in place of throw-away sets. It’s also probably more hygienic, who knows how well places clean silverware.

I just bought a set off Amazon for $10. It came with 2 sets of forks, knives, spoons, and chopsticks. This is for our upcoming trip to Japan, and future trips. If you’re traveling in Asia, it’s a bonus because if you’re not comfortable with chopsticks you can have a backup set of utensils.
