Families visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge experience full sci-fi immersion that doesn’t stop at mealtime. The dining locations play a large role in the created story from a Smelter Droid rotating spits of meat under a Podracing Engine, to a seedy Cantina filled with scum & villainy, to a Milk Stand offering both Blue and Green drinks found in the Star Wars saga films. Continue reading for some of my favorite dishes in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. For a complete overview of the entire Star Wars theme park land, head over to my article on Family Vacation Critic.
Oga’s Cantina is the local hangout that serves both nonalcoholic drinks and alcoholic outer-worldly and on-planet cocktails. The family-friendly establishment has a droid, DJ Rex (who fans may recognize from Star Tours), who spins the music and provides local color.
Bowl of Batuu bits snacks and selection of nonalcoholic and alcoholic drinks including a beer flight served in a souvenir board with four Rancor teeth.
Yub Nub is an alcoholic fruity rum drink served in a souvenir Tiki Endor mug at Oga’s Cantina for $42.
Cliff Dweller is a nonalcoholic tropical drink served in a souvenir Porg Tiki mug at Oga’s Cantina for $32.
Fans can drink the same Blue Milk that Luke Skywalker grew up with on Tatooine and discover… it’s not milk! The Blue Milk sold in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is a slushie plant-based rice & coconut “milk” with berry and tropical flavors. After The Last Jedi, fans discovered Luke also enjoys a freshly obtained Green Milk. This creamy frozen beverage (also rice & coconut milk) has more citrus, minty, and floral overtones. Both “milk” varieties are available at the Milk Stand for approximately $8 per glass. I definitely preferred the blue over the green version. The blue milk was fruity and refreshing, but I actually found the green milk distasteful.
The Mustafarian Lava Roll pastry and Rising Moons Overnight Oats (with yogurt and fruit) are two of the breakfast offerings found at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
One of my personal favorite dishes in the new land – the grab and go, walk around sandwich option is a BBQ Ronto Wrap. A grilled sausage with roasted pork, slaw, and wrapped in a pita bread for $15 is much tastier than you might think for the dinosaur-like Star Wars creature from Tatooine.
Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo is the counter service dining option in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The Felucian Garden Spread is plant-based “impossible” burger served with herb hummus and tomato-cucumber relish with pita bread. Felucia is a humid, jungle planet in the Star Wars Universe occupied by farming communities.
Kaadu Ribs are a slow-roasted, smoked country sticky pork rib served with blueberry corn muffin and cabbage slaw found at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. These ribs were soooo tender, and fell right off the bone. Delicious!
Shaaks are the large, grazing herbivores found on the planet Naboo that Anakin Skywalker attempted to ride. The Braised Shaak Roast, found at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo features beef pot roast with cavatelli pasta, kale and mushrooms. This was another hearty dish that was a perfect dinner option, and the cavatelli pasta alone could stand on its own.
Tip-yip is the Endorian Chicken, and, at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, this fried version is served with roasted vegetable mash and herb gravy. The Forest Moon of Endor is where the Ewoks lived in “Return of the Jedi”. I personally found the “Tip-yip” to be much too dry, but perhaps a couple of “Yub Nubs” from Oga’s Cantina would make the dish more appealing.
Signature desert of Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. This pastry consists of a chocolate cake topped with white chocolate mousse and coffee custard. My favorite of the desserts. Batuu’s pastry chefs better be prepared to make a ton of Batuu Bons every day.
Oi-oi are small red berries in the Star Wars Universe, and here they are used for Batuu’s answer to a crème puff. The fruity raspberry crème puff is filled with a passion fruit mousse. Personally, I found the dish too be much too tart and fruity, and it was not to my taste.
Outpost Mix of kettle corn can be found at Kat Saka’s Kettle in the Black Spire Outpost marketplace. Made from a popped mushroom popcorn kernel, the sweet & spicy blend is meant to be eaten together. It also comes in an optional MSE-5 series repair droid (i.e., mouse droid) souvenir popcorn bucket. I did not get much spice from this popcorn at all, and thought it was a very tasty blend.
Aurebesh is the alphabet and writing system used in the Star Wars Universe, and off-planet partner Coca-Cola worked to bring Coke to Batuu in an appropriate form. The Coca-Cola orbs resemble “thermal detonators” from the Star Wars Universe, and labeling is all written in Aurebesh. These will definitely become collector’s items. I’m not a soda drinker myself, but managed to smuggle a couple orbs home that are now displayed in my office.
