    You can add it by ToolbarItems directly, here is running GIF.

    First of all, change your code in the App.xml like following code.

       MainPage = new NavigationPage(new MainPage());

    Then, open your Tabbedpage, add the ToolbarItems achievement.

        public partial class MainPage : TabbedPage
        public MainPage ()
            InitializeComponent ();
            ToolbarItems.Add(new ToolbarItem("Food", "search.png", () =>
                DisplayAlert("INFO", "click", "Ok");
