English term or phrase: thick chips
At Hamburger Union you order on entree from a cheap and cheerful menu of beef, chicken, chorizo and veggie burgers, thick chips, shakes, sides and alcohol, then walk through the pleasant dining area.
Ich habe für chips Hackschnitzel gefunden, was mir ehrlich gesagt gänzlich neu war. Würdet Ihr das hier auch so sagen? Oder passt auch Frikadellen? Oder ist das hier etwas ganz anderes? Oder doch eher Pommes?

Falls es um diese Kette geht - offensichtlich in GB angesiedelt, also sind "chips" eindeutig "Pommes".

agree  jccantrell: If this is Brit-speak, Pommes for sure. We would call them 'fries' on this side of the pond.

agree  Jule Eitel: absolutely :-)
7 mins

agree  Irene Schlotter, Dipl.-Übers.: Eigentlich sollte es ja Pommes Frites heißen... falls es (sehr) umgangssprachlich und etwas schnodderig gewünscht ist, geht auch 'Fritten'.
9 mins

agree  xxxFrancis Lee: offensichtlich breit/dick geschnittene Pommes (also nicht Chips im GB-Sinne von "crisps"); eventuell Kartoffelecken (obwohl dann ja "wedges" stünde)

agree  Petra51: agree - aber mit Irene: "Pommes Frites"
