It is – only that you don't get yet pull-down menus, as Eli wrote. What you get 
is something like this (edited a bit):

        File Edit Options Buffers Tools Minibuf Help                            
        For information about GNU Emacs and the GNU system, type C-h C-a.
        Making completion list... [2 times]
        You can run the command `tmm-menubar' with M-`
        Making completion list...
        -UUU:**--F1  *Messages*     All L6     (Fundamental) 
        Press PageUp key to reach this buffer from the minibuffer.
        Alternatively, you can use Up/Down keys (or your History keys) to change
        the item in the minibuffer, and press RET when you are done, or press 
        marked letters to pick up your choice.  Type C-g or ESC ESC ESC to 
        In this buffer, type RET to select the completion near point.
        Possible completions are:
        b==>Buffers               e==>Edit                  f==>File
        h==>Help                  o==>Options               t==>Tools
        -UUU:%*--F1  *Completions*   All L1     (Completion List) 
        Menu bar (up/down to change, PgUp to menu): f==>File

There are two windows. I pressed F10 in one of them, the upper one, *Messages*, 
and it divided, showing the list of menus in the "menu bar" in the newly 
created *Completions* buffer. The mini-buffer shows a first choice that you can 
override plus a means to navigate through the menus and menu entries. When you 
have chosen a menu, the *Completions* buffer then shows the entries of this 
selected menu. And so on.

It's probably easier to work through the tutorial and learn a few commands 
bound to keys…
