He asks "after" the menu? Is this like saying is is asking "about" the menu?

Its kind of an antiquate phrase. It works in English but is seldom used. In Danish however, you've just got to remember it. I have to make a conscious effort to stop translating it like i'd say it in English. Gotta be mindful of Danish grammar rules.

So, why is it efter and not for or til menuen?

This, right after ‘a tiger is eating my husband’, is a bit unsettling.
