Binding and Sub-MenuItems - How to get the events?

Based on my forum entry 127366 (https://www.syncfusion.com/forums/127366/binding-and-sub-menuitems) I´m now able to bind menu-items and sub-menu-items to collections in ViewModels or code behind.
I´m now struggling with the problem how to get the event when a sub-menu-item is clicked?

I tried two approaches:

Trigger the tapped event in my DataTemplate:

        <DataTemplate x:Key="MenuItemInnerTemplate">
            <Grid Tag="{Binding}" Tapped="MenuItemTapped">
                <TextBlock Text="{Binding Label}"/>
        <primitives:HierarchicalDataTemplate ItemsSource="{Binding SubMenuItems}" x:Key="MenuItemTemplate" Template="{StaticResource MenuItemInnerTemplate}">
                <primitives:HierarchicalDataTemplate ItemsSource="{Binding SubMenuItems}" Template="{StaticResource MenuItemInnerTemplate}"/>

<navigation:SfMenu Orientation="Vertical" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top"
                       ItemTemplate="{StaticResource MenuItemTemplate}"/>

In Code behind I´m setting the ItemsSource to a ObservableCollection of my model.
In the Tapped-Event handler I´m reading the Tag property and therefor get the assigned element from my collection.

Works for the first layer, but NOT for submenu items. Here I do not get the tapped event from my Grid control.

Second try:

In code behind when the SfMenu control is Loaded I´m trying to get the realized SfMenuItem controls via the VisualTree. But also cant get the correct submenu items.

I´m pretty sure that I´m missing something. Could you please give me an advise how to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance and best regards, Gernot
