What can you eat at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge?
At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge you’ll be dining in Batuu. The eateries will be based on Batuu, when it was in its hay day. It was once a thriving refreshment stop for traders and travellers. The famous Black Spire Outpost, will provide you and other hungry guests with exotic intergalactic dishes and a temporary safe haven from the First Order.
Orga’s Cantina and Docking Bay 7 will be a great place for you and your family to refuel and continue your Star Wars adventurer. If you don’t have time to sit down and eat, grab a quick tasty wrap at Ronto Roasters in the Black Spire Outpost market.
