- "You there! Can I interest you in a juicy ronto wrap? Best in this quadrant!"
- ―8D-J8 offers a ronto wrap to Remex Io
Ronto wraps were food items made from ronto meat served in a flat piece of bread called a ronto wrapper and topped with vegetables and Clutch Sauce. They were available at podracing fanatic Bakkar's Ronto Roasters in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu and were cooked by the droid 8D-J8. The mechanic Salju and Resistance spy Vi Moradi both ordered ronto wraps while the former gave the latter a tour of the outpost. 8D-J8 once offered a ronto wrap to the Clawdite Remex Io, who turned it down.
Description[edit | edit source]
A ronto wrap was a dish available at Ronto Roasters, a restaurant owned by the podracing fanatic Bakkar, in Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim planet Batuu. It contained a sausage link made from ronto meat that was grilled by the droid chef 8D-J8. The ronto link had more meat underneath it and was topped with vegetables and white-colored Clutch Sauce, Bakkar's signature spicy sauce, and this filling was served in a flatbread called a ronto wrapper. Bakkar also included a special spice blend that was a family secret. There was also a breakfast version of the dish called the Ronto Morning Wrap and a vegetarian meat-free Ronto-less Garden Wrap. Both versions were safe for humans to consume. Strono Tuggs, the chef at the neighboring Tuggs' Grub mobile eatery parked in Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, also had a version of the ronto wrap. The Artiodac willingly admitted that his version was not as good as Bakkar's, but claimed that the difference was hardly noticeable if the wrap was smothered in Emulsauce. He included his version of the recipe in his cookbook The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook.
History[edit | edit source]
- "Being in a crash makes a girl hungry. Do I smell meat?"
- ―Vi Moradi smells the meats being cooked at Ronto Roasters
During the war between the First Order and the Resistance, the local mechanic Salju took the Resistance spy Vi Moradi on a tour of Black Spire Outpost, during which they stopped at Ronto Roasters and each ordered a ronto wrap. After the arrival of the First Order on Batuu, 8D-J8 offered a ronto wrap to the Clawdite Remex Io. Despite the droid claiming they were both juicy and the best in the quadrant, the criminal was unimpressed and declined the offer.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The ronto wrap was announced on February 27, 2019 as part of a large press release on upcoming dining offerings for the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge theme park. Its first appearance was in the first issue of the Marvel Comics miniseries Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, which was written by Ethan Sacks, pencilled by Will Sliney, and published on April 24 of that year. The dish debuted in the real-world Ronto Roasters restaurant at Disneyland Park when it opened on May 31. The official menu description for the ronto wrap is as follows: "Roasted Pork, Grilled Pork Sausage, Peppercorn Sauce, tangy Slaw, wrapped in Pita." A recipe for the dish was released in the 2019 cookbook Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Marc Sumerak.
