    Pomme frites.

    French is the cut of the potato, not the origin of the dish.

    Pomme frites.

    If they're sliced super thin they're called aiguillettes (needle-ettes) or allumettes (matchsticks).

  • In French, frites.

    In the Flemish part of Belgium where they were invented, frietjes.

    In the English speaking world, chips.

    But Americans were never any good at English or Geography.
