:-) Haha, what is Magali? Never tried that. Wikipedia says it is a river
in Guinea and Google shows me pictures of different dishes.

"Hamburger icon" has become a standard icon for a menu; I don't think
there was an established "menu icon" before the "responsive design"
kicked in. People used '+' sign och '...' or something else. Responsive
design is all the rage nowadays; I think it started already with Java
introducing layout managers, but it didn't become a thing until mobile
platforms made it popular due to necessity.
