Im a developing an app for a restaurant in Android Studio
I want to add the restaurant's menu in the app.
For this I created a menu in the app.
When you click on the three dots, you can see the titles of the menu
for example: pizza, dessert, ...
I made for every title an xml file with all the items of the menu.
How can I make the app show me the xml file "dessert.xml" when i click
on the title "Dessert".
How do I integrate the xml files??

I wouldn't create an extra XML for each case, but use the built-in array handling facilities for this. So your arrays.xml file might look like this:

Then you can access them like context.getResources().getStringArray(R.array.pizza), and display them in a dialog, somewhat like https://acomputerengineer.wordpress.com/2018/07/23/display-list-in-alertdialog-in-androidsimple-list-radio-button-list-check-box-list/
