A “hamburger menu” is ≡ because of its similarity to a hamburger (top bun, contents, bottom bun).

I recently heard someone refer to ⋯ as a “meatball menu,” and I’m going to start using that because I’m getting tired of saying “the three dots in the corner of your screen.”


@ramsey afaik, "meatballs menu" is indeed a commonly used name for that icon, together with some other food-related menu names :)

@wouterj @ramsey all these food menu icon names are making me hungry! is someone working on a hot chicken menu icon, ribs menu icon, maybe a steak menu icon ? 😂
