We seem to be missing a place to put menu items. A similar property was proposed before, but the suggested solutions do not seem to completely fit. We could use product or material produced (P1056) but, a menu might include Pepsi (Q47719), which is not something a subject produces. We could use cuisine (P2012), but this property seems to be specific to kinds of cuisine rather than specific items. We could use typically sells (P7163) but again, this property seems to be about kinds of products, rather than the products themselves. Though the definition of any of these could be expanded. Lastly, has part (P527) could be used, which is what I have been using, but it seems kind of odd that the parts of a restaurant chain (Q18534542) are its menu items... but maybe that makes sense? I would appreciate a more definitive answer of how we want to relate these things. If none of these are suitable, then I recommend that we create this property (or one like it).

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @U+1F360: I recommend changing the name to something like "specialty food." For example, McDonald's menu contains not only burgers but also cola and other foods. In China, they also contain Chinese food. So this property name may not be suitable. --Catherine Laurence discussion 11:18, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
    • @Catherine Laurence: that is intentional (see Example 2). It should be a reflection of the items on the menu (that are sourced). U+1F360 (talk) 15:05, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
