A missing alternative translation for "the menu"

The translation exercise Write “the menu” in German is missing the translation "das Menü".

The shown correct solutions are: die Karte, die Speisekarte

There is no possibility to report a missing alternative at the exercise so I post it here.

Menü:

  1. menu in computer programs or things like this

  2. order of meals written down in a menu (=(Speise-)Karte). Usually containing starter (Vorspeise), main course (Hauptspeise) and dessert (Nachtisch)

Those exercises with pictures (usually) are not reportable (does this word exist?); you just have to learn it as silly vocabulary.

Menu=Menü works only if you talk about computer programs.

Obviously they wanted you to learn the more native German word for menu.

It has two different (non interchangeable) meaning though.

das Menü = the order of courses

die Karte = the written/printed version

The concept vs the object.

Thanks Marie.
