Inspired by Avi's Vowelburger™ Riddle here
The local Vowelburgers™ restaurant, always looking for inspiration, decided to take a look at some other cuisines for their new menu.

$$ % custom template - reuse if you may \def\S#1#2{\Space{#1}{20px}{#2px}}\def\P#1{\V{#1em}}\def\V#1{\S{#1}{9}} \def\T{\color{white}{\textbf{Patty}}}\def\NT{\color{white}{\textbf{Vowelburger}^{\;\!™}\ }}\displaystyle \smash{\lower{29px}\bbox[#c72c41]{\phantom{\rlap{rubio.2020.01.21-custom}\S{5px}{0} \begin{array}{cc}\T&\NT\\\end{array}}}}\atop\def\V#1{\S{#1}{5}} \begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline\T&\NT\\\hline % ~\text{?}&\text{so}\\\hline ~\text{?}&\text{this}\\\hline ~\text{?}&\text{metal}\\\hline ~\text{?}&\text{your}\\\hline ~\text{?}&\text{do}\\\hline \end{array}$$

Can you help me identify each one from the description on the menu?


I think the patties are

T and N

and the burgers are

a Catalan TAN meaning "so", a Polish TEN meaning "this", an English TIN meaning a kind of metal, a French TON meaning "your", and a German TUN meaning "do".

OP informs me in comments that "other cuisines" means that every single one of these is supposed to be not-English, so I remark that

TIN means tin not only in English but also in Afrikaans, Danish, Dutch, Faroese, and Icelandic, and also means corrugated iron in Atong.
