Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Food Revealed!
When Disney is dumping millions of dollars into two new Star Wars themed lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, you can’t expect them to serve turkey legs and pretzels, can you? StarWars.com has given us our first looks at some of the many eats you’ll find at the Black Spire Outpost on the planet of Batuu (AKA: Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge).
The Food of Star Wars
” Ronto Roasters, while still incomplete during our walkthrough, is open and airy with big entrances — maybe to get all those giant rontos inside. Concept art of the eatery has revealed an ingenious detail: a giant podracer engine serves as the establishment’s cooker. “
“Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo seems to be a larger space, with cargo crates doubling as stalls at which to eat — and one crate being lowered through a giant hatch in the ceiling. (It’s touches like that that made Galaxy’s Edge, even in its incomplete state, feel authentically Star Wars.) Among the offerings are Fried Endorian Tip-Yip (rectangle shaped fried chicken) and Kaadu Ribs (smoked country sticky pork ribs with blueberry corn muffin and cabbage slaw); my favorite, Felucian Garden Spread (a plant-based kefta “meatball” dish, which I could not tell was not made of beef, with herb hummus and tomato-cucumber relish with pita bread), takes inspiration from its namesake, Felucia, a planet covered in plants and foliage.”
The Drinks of Star Wars
“Finally, some of Star Wars’ most iconic drinks are coming to Galaxy’s Edge. Blue and Green Milk (for those who prefer the thala-siren variety) will be available, both made with plant-based dairy. You can pick up frozen iterations at the Milk Stand, and a regular version of Blue Milk at Oga’s Cantina.”
For the first time in Disneyland park, alcohol will be available to regular day guests. Early word from Disneyland is that guests will need to consume their beverage in the confines of their restaurant/themed area before heading out.
“The alcoholic selections are sometimes frothy, sometimes steamy, and sometimes delightfully bubbly, like The Fuzzy Tauntaun, The Bespin Fizz, and The Outer Rim. The Bloody Rancor, of course, comes with an edible bone. A selection of beers are on the way; one of the options we sampled was very hoppy, with hints of citrus and a little bitter.”
“Beverages will be available at Oga’s Cantina, Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, and select stands. They’re colorful, with hues ranging from pink to orange to yellow and beyond: the non-alcoholic Tatooine Sunset, a reddish pink, is tea-based and smooth. Moof Juice, a pinkish fruit juice, is cool and refreshing. Oga’s Obsession falls somewhere between beverage and snack, and tastes the most other-worldly; contained in what looks like a petri dish, you scoop your serving, and the garnish pops in your mouth.”
Everything sounds so tasty and we can’t WAIT to try it all once Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens in Summer 2019 at Disneyland and Fall 2019 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World. What looks the best to you?
