The Unofficial Guide to Galaxy’s Edge: Where to Eat On Batuu

Rex Where to Eat and Drink on Batuu Banner

A fast-casual counter-service restaurant, a lounge, and three snack and beverage stands make up your options for dining at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Here is a short overview.

The main eatery inside the land is Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, (Mobile Ordering Available) a quick-service restaurant you won’t have a hard time finding, as it has Cookie’s Sienar-Chall Utilipede-Transport ship parked on the roof. According to Disney lore, it is the home of Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs, the former chef at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana from The Force Awakens. The restaurant, housed in a working hangar bay, serves beef pot roast, roasted chicken, oven-roasted fish, and vegetarian dishes.

Our favorites are Smoked Kaadu Ribs (the creature Jar Jar rode in Episode I) served with homey corn muffins. Tip-Yip (actually chicken) is served roasted on a quinoa-curry salad or compressed into cubes and deep-fried with herbaceous gravy. Vegans will rejoice at not one but two meatless menu items featuring Impossible Foods, while gluten-free pescatarians can pick the chilled Yobshrimp and arrowroot noodles with spicy Thai dressing.

All of the food here is named after unpronounceable otherworldly species, but rest assured that they’re really made of earthbound ingredients, many of which are sustainably sourced, such as the mustard-crusted Burra fish. No alcohol is served here, but you can sip a Phattro (iced tea and lemonade) or a very sweet Moof Juice (fruit punch).

At Oga’s Cantina, the galaxy’s most infamous watering hole, join smugglers, rogue traders, and bounty hunters for drinks. This cantina, overseen by alien proprietor Oga Garra, will instantly remind fans of the Mos Eisley watering hole seen in Star Wars: A New Hope. DJ R-3X (better known as Captain Rex, the former Star Tours droid pilot voiced by Paul “Pee Wee Herman” Rubens), spins an original 80s-style synth-pop soundtrack. Bartenders dispense drinks from a tangle of tubes and bubbling tubs behind the bar; all beverages here are premixed and Star Wars-themed, so you can’t order a gin and tonic or other terrestrial tipple.

Oga Garra keeps a tight ship, and it is a reservation-only experience. Reservations are available via the Disneyland App or online 14 days prior to your visit, however Disney will hold back some slots for same-day reservations when guests can reserve the remaining spots as of 7 a.m. on the day of their visit.

Ten signature alcoholic cocktails are on the menu, including Bespin Fizz (a bubbly Cosmopolitan), Blood Rancor (Bloody Mary with “bone” garnish), Fuzzy Tauntaun (foam-topped citrus), Jedi Mind Trick (botanicals and bitter grapefruit), and Yub Nub (passion fruit rum punch). Custom-brewed beers and private-label wines—like Toniray, a sparkling cuvée from Princess Leia’s doomed home planet Alderaan—are also served, as are nonalcoholic drinks (try the frozen cookie-crowned Blue Bantha) and a Cantina Mix with seaweed crackers and wasabi peas.

As the first (and so far only) place to drink alcohol inside Disneyland Park, Oga’s is packed at all times and there are only a handful of booths for sitting, with most of the patrons required to stand along the bar. Remember that if you linger longer than 45 minutes or two drinks, you may eventually be asked to exit and make room for more guests.

Ronto Roasters (Mobile Ordering Available)serves wraps filled with spiced grilled sausage and roasted pork. A disgruntled droid named 8D-J8 does the cooking here, turning alien meats on a rotating spit as they roast underneath a recycled podracing engine. The sandwiches are dressed with spicy szechuan “clutch sauce,” and the hand-cut jerky comes in sweet teriyaki or spicy herb flavors. Wash it down with a tart Sour Sarlacc raspberry lemonade. In case you are not into the Sour Sarlacc, Coca-Cola sodas come in unique spherical bottles emblazoned in Aurebesh, the Star Wars alphabet. Cheers!

At The Milk Stand (Mobile Ordering available), enjoy the famous Blue and Green Milk. Direct from the Bubo Wamba Family Farms comes Disney’s attempt at a Butterbeer-style must-try beverage inspired by Luke Skywalker’s love of lactation. Luckily, guests don’t have to suckle this plant-based smoothie straight from a sea cow’s nipple. Green, as seen in The Last Jedi, has tropical flavors like orange blossom and tangerine; the blue beverage from A New Hope tastes of berry and melon.

Blue and Green Milk is an acquired taste, to say the least. We strongly recommend that a family purchases one drink for all to taste before going ahead and ordering one for each member of your party. 

A popcorn stand dubbed Kat Saka’s Kettle sells a sweet-and-salty popcorn snack with a hint of spice. And, of course, it comes with a story, so listen up! A local grain farmer runs this small stand, serving red and purple kernels coated in exotic spices collected from across the galaxy. This Outpost mix combines three different flavors; you can’t order them individually.

If for any reason you are left hungry in this forgotten outpost, then we suggest you try more terrestrial eateries outside of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Overall, the park’s restaurants might be stretched to outer rim limits to feed Stormtroopers and Resistance members alike, and you might be better off eating outside of Disneyland Park after you are done visiting the new land.
