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

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. As of January 2017, last updated in December 2016.[1].
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. As of January 2017, last updated in March 2015.[2].

Homerun is a fullscreen launcher with content organized in tabs. As of January 2017, last updated in August 2014.[3].

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