There are four explicit tones in Mandarin but also the fifth (or as some people call it, the 4.5th :P) voiceless tone, though I'm not sure that's particularly important for menu stuff...

It's interesting seeing what you've written, as I must say that I've never really considered this stuff before! Like 肉 without any modifiers is so obviously pork to me that I would never even think to explain it.
