Hydian Way Tapcafe

These dishes come from worlds on or near the Hydian Way. From Galactic north to south the represented planets include:

Bonadan/Corporate Sector (Other planets include Ammuud and R’alla)

Telos - Home to humans, Ithorians, Twi’lek, and Duros.

Celanon

Botajef - A former Kwa world.

Bandomeer - A former Kwa world.

Taris

Brentaal - A Core World that has embraced the ecologies and cuisines of other worlds, doubtless including the historic space-going races such as the Duros. Brentaal is at the intersection of the Hydian Way and the Perlemian Trade Route.

Aquilae - A colony of Duros.

Nordra - The inhabitants of this frozen world enjoy hot food.

Malastare - Home to a Gran colony.

Eraidu - "The Coruscant of the Outer Rim,” whose inhabitants have an accent that is "more Core than Core”. Undoubtedly their cuisine also follows these sentiments.

Note:

* = the ingredients are canon but the combinations are not. **The foods of Nordra are completely invented. Arkanian Sweet Milk Bread is an extrapolation from Arkanian Sweet Milk. Arkania is near but not on the Hydian Way.

For a Hydian Way twist, enjoy Ithorian starfruit or jewel-fruit syrup from the Hydian Way world of Telos or Hwotha berry syrup from the former Kwa worlds of Bandomeer and Botajef, which are also on the Hydian Way. [Howtha berries come from Dathomir, the Kwa homeworld. I am assuming they would be exported to the other Kwa worlds.]

Breads:

Enjoy these breads with your favorite spread, such as: Bantha butter, beebleberry jelly, cloudberry jam, cloudberry jelly, crelnut butter, Corellian Traladon cheese spread, Ithorian jewel-fruit jam or Ithorian starfruit jam.

Alderaanian flatbread - The Commenor Run connects Alderaan with Brentaal.

Elba Bread from Bonadan in the Corporate Sector

Mealbread from Corellia. Brentaal’s ecology was largely replaced with that of other Core Worlds, such as Corellia and Chandrila. Brentaal is connected with Chandrila via the Perlemian Trade Route but Brentaal sits at the intersection of the Hydian Way and the Perlemian.

Munch-fungus bread - This Twi’lek bread is popular with the Twi’lek community on Telos.

Soaked Arkanian Sweet Milk Burrmillet Bread - This bread is made to our special recipe. Burrmillet is soaked in Arkanian Sweet Milk, which is like a creamy ale or mead, before being made into a bread. The bread is slightly sweet. Arkania is off of the Hydian Way.

Sandwiches:

Choose your bread from one of the above choices.

Denuba Sandwich - A popular choice on Coruscant. Brentaal is connected with Coruscant via the Perlemian Trade Route.

Burgers

Choose from bantha burgers, nerfburgers, squallburgers, or *Ammuudian Grazer burgers from Ammuud in the Corporate Sector. Brentaal’s ecology was largely replaced with that of other Core Worlds, such as Alderaan, Corellia and Chandrila. Nerfs originated on Alderaan but are found throughout the Core Worlds and through most of the galaxy. Squalls come from Chandrila. The home planet of the banthas is up for debate.

Soups and Stews:

These are popular on cold worlds like Nordra.

Alderaan Stew with bantha meat, roast gorak bird, and Alderaanian grains and vegetables. The Commenor Run connects Alderaan with Brentaal.

*Blackback Stew - Blackback and Tintolive stew comes from Chandrila. Brentaal is connected with Chandrila via the Perlemian Trade Route. [Blackbacks are forest birds hunted on Chandrila. If they are hunted then they are edible. Tintolive trees are said to be able to be “processed” into a “foodstuff” by https://www.mithriltabby.com/starwars/galaxy/coreworlds.xhtml. Perhaps they have something like olives?]

Chale Soup - This is a think soup made from chale mush. Some like it as a drink. This dish comes from Telos and shows the influence of the Ithorians in rebuilding Telos after devastating wars.

* Hydian Way 4 Fish Stew - This dish is inspired by a Brentaali fish stew. It starts with coin-crabs from Taris (on the Hydian Way) and Burra fish (originally from Dathomir but which could have been exported to the former Kwa Hydian worlds of Bandomeer and Botajef). Then it adds Adegan eels from the now-extinct world of Ossus. Ossus was connected with Brentaal via the Perlemian Trade Route. The cooks of Brentaal have long maintained their stocks of Adegan eel for their stews. They have also kept up stocks of Eriaduan flow-mollusks, which are extinct on Eriadu. Brentaal is at the intersection of the Hydian and the Perlemian.

Nerf Steak Stew - Nerfs originated on Alderaan but this stew is popular in the Core Worlds, such as Brentaal, and throughout the galaxy.
