- ―The omelete's description at Dex's
Bellassan peppers were a type of pepper used in cooking. It was one of many additional ingredients that customers could choose to add to a gartro egg omelet at the eatery known as Dex's Diner on the planet Coruscant. The omelet consisted of three Grade Aurek gartro eggs, and was filled with jerba cheese. The Besalisk chef and owner of Dex's Diner, Dexter Jettster, considered the omelet with any of the additional ingredients, including Bellassan peppers, to be delicious. The dish cost 7.5 credits, with the addition of the peppers costing another 5 decicreds. Bellassan peppers were available as an ingredient at Dex's at some point prior to the establishment's destruction during the first two years of the Galactic Empire's rule.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Bellassan peppers were first mentioned in the 2009 StarWars.com Hyperspace exclusive article, Dining at Dex's, which was written by Gregory Walker in the form of an in-universe menu for Dex's Diner. The article did not make clear if there was any connection between the peppers and the planet Bellassa.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- The Last of the Jedi: Underworld established that Dex's Diner was destroyed by the Galactic Empire. The Essential Reader's Companion later stated that the novel took place around the year 18 BBY. The New Essential Chronology states that the Empire was formed in 19 BBY, so Dex's Diner was destroyed either during 19 BBY or 18 BBY.
