The "Arterial Blocker" was the name of a greasy breakfast dish served at the Kragget restaurant on Coruscant, the capital world of the Galactic Republic. The Arterial Blocker included fried eggs and smoked nerf slices. The dish became a favorite of the Grand Army of the Republic military contractor Kal Skirata, a regular customer of the Kragget during the Clone Wars. The Kragget's Twi'lek waitress, Soronna, knew the Arterial Blocker was a usual order of Skirata's, who preferred to order an extra egg with the meal.
