There are alternative "start menu" style Plasma application launchers in the KDE platform, including:

Kickoff
The default application launcher that provides a click-through interface for finding and launching applications. Kickoff has a search facility, allowing you to type the name of the application or its description to find it.

Lancelot is a powerful application launcher which also allows launch menus to be placed on the panel. Lancelot provides search facilities, so if you know the name of the application you don't need to find your way around the menu.

Homerun is a fullscreen launcher with content organized in tabs.
Classic Menu
Available from either the Add Widgets interface or by right-clicking on Kickoff and selecting "Switch to Classic Menu Style", this application launcher provides a classical hierarchical menu that is easily customized to give quick access to various useful applications and services.

There is also KRunner, which replaces the "run command" dialog, blurs the lines between desktop search, application launcher and command executor and provides a quick way to run applications or open documents.
