SB 10.86.4
tatra vai varsitan masan
 avatsit svartha-sadhakah
pauraih sabhajito ’bhiksnam
 ramenajanata ca sah

Translation:
He stayed there during the monsoon months to fulfill his purpose. Lord Balarama and the other residents of the city, not recognizing him, offered him all honor and hospitality.


SB 10.86.5
ekada grham aniya
 atithyena nimantrya tam
sraddhayopahrtam bhaiksyam
 balena bubhuje kila

Translation: 
One day Lord Balarama brought him to His home as His invited dinner guest, and Arjuna ate the food the Lord respectfully offered him.

Purport: 
From the explanation of Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti, it is understood that Arjuna in his sannyasi role had just finished the four-month vows of the rainy season and could now again accept general invitations from householders. Thus no one would have suspected any unusual motive in his visiting Lord Balarama at this time.
