Batuu 101: Ronto Roasters

Bakkar, the proprietor

Ronto Roasters is a quick-service restaurant inside the Market. They serve a variety of unique drinks and food items. 

Location

Ronto Roasters is located in the Black Spire Market right next to Kat Saka’s Kettle. If you are coming from the entrance of Batuu the Market is just past the X-wing to the left. If you are coming from the Black Spire Outpost area Ronto Roasters is up the stair past the Millennium Falcon. To the right is Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo and to the left is Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities. Just past Dok-Ondar’s to the right is Ronto Roasters, at the entrance to the Market. 

The Atmosphere

Ronto Roasters has a unique atmosphere. The look of the restaurant is very make-shift industrial-like most of Black Spire Outpost. At the entrance to the quick-service line, there is a large podracing engine that appears to be roasting various Batuuan creatures on a spit. There is a droid who has the important job of turning the spit. There is an inside eating area as well as a cute outside area that is shared with the Docking Bay 7. We chose to eat in the outdoor space. There are several booths and hightop stools that are placed at a hightop counter in front of a tree with lanterns hanging down from it.

I decided to try to dinner version of the Ronto Wrap and wash it down with a Tattooine Sunset. The Ronto Wrap is a good portion. The sausage sticks out of the side of the pita a little. The wrap itself is rather spicy. The peppercorn sauce adds quite a bit of heat. I like spicy foods so it did not bother me but I would not recommend this if you have a spice sensitivity. The pork sausage has an overpowering flavor.

I had a hard time tasting the roasted pork and the coleslaw. All I could really taste was the peppercorn sauce and the sausage. The pita was a great addition. It was warm and a great bread alternative. The coleslaw did add a bit of a crunch but not much flavor. I was worried that because it did not come with a side item that I would still be hungry but the wrap is actually really filling. Overall, I would say it was good but not an item I would have to have next time I go to Galaxy’s Edge. 

I also tried the Tattooine Sunset. This non-alcoholic beverage was a fun spin on the traditional Arnold Palmer. It is a mix of unsweetened tea, lemonade, melon, and blueberry flavoring. It was tea ended up being sweet with the additions of the flavors. I did not taste much melon but the lemonade and blueberry flavors stood out. Overall, I would recommend this drink. Its refreshing and sipping on it on a hot Batuuan day would be awesome. Next time I go to Batuu this drink is high on my list of things to get. 

The Story

Ronto Roasters is operated by a big podracing fan Bakkar. Bakkar made sure to decorate the restaurant with several podracing flags. He also installed a podracing engine at the restaurant’s entrance. He uses it as a heat source to slow-roast a variety of meats on a spit.
