We’ve Got No Bad Feelings About Alamo Drafthouse’s Star Wars-Themed Menu
Blue Milk just seemed too easy, didn't it?
The Alamo Drafthouse does a lot of things right. They’ve got zero tolerance for cell phone use during a movie, they’ve got an excellent beer and cocktail selection, and perhaps most impressively, they’ve got food that’s often themed to the latest major movie release. In fact, they just announced their brand new Star Wars: The Force Awakens-themed menu.
You won’t find your run-of-the-mill Wookiee cookies, Jawa juice, or blue milk here. There’s four entrées plus two cocktails to get you through what may prove to be the movie event of the decade. Plus, the whole thing is printed on a die-cut menu shaped like the Millennium Falcon. You can bet a lot of these babies are going to uh… “go missing.”
My favorite bits? The cocktails. That Gold Membrosia sounds fantastic. Also, Rodian Spice Liquor. Like… yes, please.
Check out the full menu below, plus photos. How great is it that they did the photo shoot on Star Wars sheets?
Nerf Strips: Beef Skewers in Orange-Garlic Marinade, Pesto Sauce.
Nerfs were one of the most consumed meats in the galaxy. And, shagginess aside, nerf herding a was a vital — and very profitable — vocation.
Trash Compactor Pizza: Mozzarella, Blue Cheese, Pear, Pecan, Green Onion, Bacon Jam.
“What an incredible smell you’ve discovered!”
Yoda Soba Salad: Chilled Soba Noodles, Spinach, Shaved Brussels Sprouts, Nori, Avocado, Cucumbers, Seared Tofu, Sesame Seeds. With Soy-Ginger Dressing.
Packed with delicious green foods. A wise choice, this is.
Wookie Wasaka Berry Crêpes: Chocolate Ricotta Filling, White Chocolate, Raspberries.
The Wookies are vegetarians and one of their delicacies is the Wasaka berry, a fruit that looks very much like a raspberry.
Jabba’s Critter Fritter: Corn, Shrimp, and Red Pepper Friters. With Roasted Jalapeno Aioli.
Besides lording over a vast criminal empire, Jabba enjoyed eating the various insect-like creatures native to Tatooine (deep fried, of course).
Tatooine Sunset: Cana Brava Rum, Añejo Rum, Orange, Lime, Almond, Bitters
