Food & Drink / Restaurant menu
Spanish term or phrase: Carta de Menú (vs Carta de Restaurante)
This is from a menu and appears after the Carta de Restaurante.
I have always thought "Menú" is a set menu, whereas "Carta" is what we would call simply a menu. However, the list of items (platos combinados and bocadillos) under the "Carta de Menú" are individually priced so I'm now confused.
Can anyone shed any light, please?
Thanks!

the idea of "standard menu" is what the restaurant normally offers

Reference: À la carte

Reference information:
In restaurants, à la carte /ɑːləˈkɑːrt/[1] is the practice of ordering individual dishes from a menu in a restaurant, as opposed to table d'hôte, where a set menu is offered.[2] It is an early 19th century loan from French meaning "according to the menu".[3][4]

The individual dishes to be ordered may include side dishes, or the side dishes may be offered separately, in which case, they are also considered à la carte
