he word トマトソース comes from the English phrase “tomato sauce” and in Australia (as well as the Commonwealth of Nations) it usually refers to the sauce in the picture. It’s often used for chips/fries. However, if you ask for トマトソース in マクドナルド in Japan, they will say that they don’t have it! Why? トマトソース in Katakana refers to “Pomodoro sauce” for pasta, so it’s unlikely to find it in マクドナルド.
If you’d like the sauce in the photo, you need to ask for トマトケチャップ or ケチャップ, which is the transliteration of the American word “Ketchup.”
