I'm new to this community (and kinda new to ux design too) and I'm having some trouble building the interface for a digital menu for restaurants which is going to be used on android tablets. The main part of this menu contains a list of all dishes the user can order, like displayed in this basic wireframe:
Each one of this items has its own page which contains extra information about it. I'm really having some trouble deciding a psicologically functional (yet beautiful) way to show the user that there's more to see.
If I was to make this menu to a normal mouse-controlled interface, I would just put underlines on hover. But, since touchscreens do not have hovering, I discarded this.
I also thought of some right-pointing arrow button on the right side of each item, but it definitely would pollute the overall visual of the screen (lots of repeated unnecessary information isn't a very good practice either).
I tried to figure out how common touchscreen apps deal with this, but it seems that most of them assume that the user is intelligent/curious enough to foretell that they must click the name of the item... it doesn't seem like a good solution for me, since I believe this app is going to have a very wide range of age to consider (I don't see 60 year olds understanding that).
p.s.: I don't really expect a great and unique solution, but I guess some nice ideas to work with can come up here.
