Sukka on Shemini Atzeres

Question:

I live in EY but keep two days Yom Tov as per a psak I previously received. My minhag is to eat all the Seudos in the Sukka. I am invited for the night by someone who only keeps one day Yom Tov.
I understand that it is a machlokes if a ben chutz la’aretz should eat in the sukka in Eretz Yisrael. Would it be permissible to make kiddush in my Sukka eat a Kezayis and have da’as to continue the meal and eat the rest of the meal out of the sukka there as the MB says in 668:6 that doesn’t need to to eat food in the sukka on Shmini Atzeres which one isn’t mechuyav to eat in the sukka the rest of Sukkos.
Thank you.

 

Answer:

The minhag according to most poskim is that bei Chut Laaretz do not eat in the succah on Shminei Atzeres.
