A meatalo, as named by visitors to its homeworld, was a fruit-shaped, meat, and lard dish from the Core Worlds planet of Metellos. Created in Metellos' impoverished Moridebo district, the confection could be prepared either by baking or roasting.
Behind the scenes
The meatalo was first described in Wizards of the Coast's 2003 reference book, Coruscant and the Core Worlds. The dish later received an entry in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, which was published in 2008.
