Hi English Teachers,
Please help me check and let me know whether this sentence is acceptable, thanks in advance.
In addition to eating a meal of Macdonald, I ate a meal of KFC yesterday evening.
I didn’t eat two meals yesterday and I don’t eat fast food nowadays. Thank you for your clear explanation.
Were a McDonald's meal and a KFC meal both eaten yesterday evening?
Was the McDonald's meal eaten during the day and then a KFC meal eaten in the evening?
In BrE, we wouldn't say "a meal from McDonald's/KFC" though. We don't bother mentioning the word "meal" or "food".
In addition to a McDonald's, I had a KFC last night.
In BrE, we have taken to referring to certain foods by either the brand name or the international cuisine type, preceded by the indefinite article (usually).
What did you have for dinner last night?
I had a McDonalds.
What did you have for lunch?
We had a KFC.
What did John eat for breakfast?
He grabbed a Burger King on the way to work.
What do you fancy for dinner tonight?
I really want Italian.
What are you doing for dinner on Saturday?
We're going for an Indian/We're going for a curry.
We would also say it without any type of article, like "we had Mexican" or "we had Burger King" as well as "we had some..."
We wouldn't use an "a" unless it was something like "a pizza."
