Sometimes when food choices are limited in a city that you are visiting, it’s always good to come up with a backup plan, like cooking your own meal. Many young parents also prefer to prepare their own food or puree for their young ones, even when they are on-the-go.

It may sound difficult when you don’t have pots and pans at hand, but with a Thermos® Food Jar and Tumbler - you will just require hot water, or in the case of a Shuttle Chef® - you simply need a stove, plus some ingredients, and the rest can be easily done in your hotel room or apartment.

Unless you are in Chinatown, it may be difficult to find Chinese soups. If you are staying in an apartment with a kitchenette, it is more convenient to make your own meals at any time of the day. That is why we recommend the Winter Melon Pork Balls Soup – something closer to home. The TCRA-1800 Shuttle Chef® is both convenient and portable, great for bringing overseas for some easy cooking!
