In my revious post you told me I could use the sentence:
I had a lunch box prepared by the hotel. Can I keep using this or is it better to say "we had a box lunch from the hotel's kitchen."?
Thank you very much!
A lunch box is a little metal or plastic box in which people carry their lunches that were made at home.
A box lunch is prepared by a restaurant or other commercial kitchen for people to buy and take with them on day-trips.
You're referring to a box lunch, not a lunch box!
