Can "bento" be used without "box"?

Is "bento" by itself likely to be understood by native speakers of English, and feel natural, without the word "box" afterwards?

For example, can you say "This is a photo of a bento I ate yesterday"? Assuming that you can use the word "ate" with bento without meaning that you ate the container as well!
