Can you have a bowl of Mon Calamari chowder delivered in the Star Wars universe?

If there is one thing I love more than science and tech in Star Wars; it’s culture. The Star Wars galaxy has billions of alien species each with their own cultures and with cultures comes a unique cuisine. In ‘Star Wars Bloodline‘, Leia and Han have a “take-out” dinner of spicy noodles from the planet of Ivarujar. From the context, I think Claudia Gray was making a parallel to the popularity of Chinese food that many of us enjoy on Earth. Noodles seem to be a big deal in Star Wars as in ‘Heir of the Jedi‘; Luke eats Kuophan noodles as well.

There are 197 countries on the planet Earth and each has its types of food. Living in the Star Wars galaxy would be pure heaven as I am a foodie. I would have billions of different stuff to try and I could eat a new cultural meal every day for the rest of my life and still have an eternity of stuff I DIDN’T try. I often wonder if there are famous cultural foods like Japanese, Italian, and Chinese in Star Wars. I’m sure there are.

Let’s hope it’s more than noodles but a little less than living cephalopods in chowder like in The Mandalorian.
