- "What can I get you?"
"Nothing for me. A bowl of chowder for my friend."
- ―Din Djarin orders food from a Mon Calamari server
Chowder was a thick, beige soup made with a cephalopod that was served at an inn on Trask, a moon of the gas giant Kol Iben. Around 9 ABY, the Mandalorian Din Djarin visited the inn with the foundling Grogu. He sat down at a table and ordered chowder for him from a Mon Calamari server, paying for it in Calamari Flan. The server used a hose affixed to the ceiling to dispense chowder into a bowl for Grogu, who struggled eat it with a spoon before being attacked by a cephalopod. Djarin helped him remove the cephalopod from his face.
At the same time, a pair of Mon Calamari sat nearby eating chowder, along with a group of Quarren, one of whom shook seasoning on the dish. Djarin later returned to the inn along with fellow Mandalorians Bo-Katan Kryze, Koska Reeves, and Axe Woves. While the quartet discussed their future plans, Reeves consumed a bowl of chowder, slurping the cephalopod with ease.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Chowder appeared in "Chapter 11: The Heiress," the third episode of season two of The Mandalorian and the eleventh episode of the series overall, which aired on November 13, 2020. Concept art for chowder was revealed in the credits of the episode, and a high-quality version was showcased in the "Mando Download"—a part of the episode's guide—the following Monday. The art was done by Christian Alzmann. While the sketch displayed a thin soup, the final prop used in the episode was more viscous.
