Tah-doo-Een-E Upezzo (Market) Cafe

M'um m'aloo (Hello) and Welcome to the Tah-doo-Een-E Upezzo (Jawa Market) Cafe

The Tah-doo-Een-E Upezzo (Market) Cafe is in the lower levels of Coruscant on the north side of the Works by the Jedi Temple and the Pius Dea Spaceport. A tunnel connects us to the nearest urban canyon. We are conveniently located next to Jawa Motors II, a ship repair shop, and the Tah-doo-Een-e Upezzo (Jawa Market).

Tah-doo-Een-e Market (Upezzo) and Pawn Shop II

We sell random bits of shimmersilk, crimson greel wood, "liberated" power conduits, lost whisperbirds, and whatever else turns up. Some of the finer items have been pawned as we are too busy repairing things to scavenge much.

At our market we offer hydroponically grown hubba gourds (it isn’t a real meal without hubba gourds) raised by our resident farmer, Zeth Sandskimmer, the son of moisture farmers. We also grow vegetables like tatoes, bloddles, and h'kak beans, and fruit, like deb-debs, pikas, pallies, and bristlemelons. We raise gorgs in the sewers. We consume most of what we grow but we sell some to the elite Coruscanti, who like to try exotic foods. We also sell to the poor of the Under City, who have no choice but must eat the odd food. We give them good rates. We also give good rates to the restaurant owners we like, such as Nienna at the Galactic Cantina. The farming business is doing well and we are expanding into raising sandhawks. The produce is sold via the Tah-doo-Een-e Market.

My daughters, Chenini, Aved, and Khea, led by Chenini, the eldest daughter, make bantha wool blankets with some found bantha-nerf wool blend. The designs are inspired by scenes of jungles and oceans in early Kumumgah writings. The cave drawings were copied onto paper by human settlers but Herat managed to get the original copies. They also feature one of Tatooine’s moons, Chenini. These are also sold at the Tah-doo-Een-e Market or Jawa Upezzo.

Main Dishes

Meats include Coruscant game fowl, gorgs, pikobi, sandhawk, and thrantcill. Pikobis are fast moving critters found on Coruscant, Dagobah, Naboo, and Onderon. Thrantcills have lived on Coruscant for the last 100,000 years. They have hooked beaks and flat black eyes. We serve fresh-caught pikobi and thrantcill. We raise Coruscant game fowl and sandhawks. Our sandhawks have been brought from Tatooine. They are known for their savory meat. We also raise our own gorgs.
