English term or phrase:Eat in
Original text : This can be for any mealtime that you either eat there, take with you, eat in the car or have delivered to you
You eat there = eat in, how should we say this in Chinese?
Thank you Frank but I was thinking about a term/ noun phrase, as there is another sentence like this : "Either eaten in or buy take-away from a McDonald’s restaurant", which is one of the options in the the answers within the questionnaire.
Explanation: 这里的in就是一个简单的介词。eat there=在那里吃，take with you=带走，eat in the car=在车里吃，delivered to you=送餐/送外卖（与take with you的区别就是前者自己带，后者是由店员送过去）。这里在车里吃，很可能是开车去买东西，车主不下车就可以从窗口购买的那种，以前在哪里见过国外有这种服务。不知道新加坡是否是这种情况。
