Swedish "Konbini Bento"
In Japan it is common with "bento", which means something like "lunch box", though it can be used at all times of day. A box with food you bring to wherever you plan to eat it. It is often made at home, to save money or to be healthy, but all convenience stores etc. also sell ready made bentos if you do not have the time to cook.
In Sweden you can also buy food that you just heat up or eat as it is. I had one lunch of this type, and it was very good. Fish with mashed potatoes.
I also bought a hot dog, which was super cheap (5 SEK, or 73 yen or 53 Euro cents) and very good.
