"The cuisine of the Kubaz may not be for everyone, but I guarantee you'll want to finish your meal with a thick slice of this scrumptious royal jelly roll."
―Dex's description of the roll on his diner's menu[src]

Kubindian royal jelly rolls were a dessert made by the Kubaz species that contained a filling made from a blend of various insects—worker zingbees, arthropinians, and pectin-flies. The entire dish was also dusted with the powdered chitin of sun beetles. The eatery known as Dex's Diner on the planet Coruscant served the dessert in slices for 2.7 credits each, and the establishments owner, the Besalisk chef Dexter Jettster, listed it under the "favorite desserts" section of the menu, describing it as scrumptious. The dish was served at Dex's[1] at some point prior to the diner's destruction during the first two years of the Galactic Empire's reign.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Kubindian royal jelly rolls were first mentioned in the 2009 StarWars.com Hyperspace exclusive article, Dining at Dex's, which was written by Gregory Walker in the style of an in-universe menu.

  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.
