"The classic! A grilled-to-perfection patty topped with all the fixin's—a slice of Gonzo yellow cheese, Revwien lettuce, topato slices, grilled Ojomian onions and B'omarr-style pickles."
―Dex's Diner menu, regarding the Coruscant slider[1]

Gonzo yellow cheese was a type of cheese enjoyed by the Besalisk Dexter Jettster and used in his restaurant located on the planet Coruscant, Dex's Diner, before[1] his diner was destroyed during the first two years of the Galactic Empire's rule.[2] One slice of the cheese was served on Jettster's Coruscant slider, a dish inspired by the eponymous planet and the time he had spent there. Pashi noodles, another diner dish, were served with Gonzo yellow cheese sauce.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Gonzo yellow cheese is mentioned in a Hyperspace-exclusive release, "Dining at Dex's," which was written by Gregory Walker in the style of an in-universe menu for Dex's Diner.[1] The word "gonzo" is a slang term that exists within the Star Wars galaxy, one that acts as a positive adjective,[3] although only a nominal connection between the word and the cheese is made in Walker's work.[1]

  2. 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.
