Bacon was a type of food[1] the Besalisk[2] Dexter Jettster enjoyed and served in his restaurant on the planet of Coruscant, Dex's Diner, before[1] the establishment's destruction during the first two years of the Galactic Empire's rule.[3] Varieties included tailring bacon, which Jettster used as a topping on his Socorro slider, and nuna bacon. The latter was served on its own as a breakfast side dish, with Anoat oats as the second Pantoran Plate Special breakfast, in Shawda Clubb sandwiches, and in Besh-Leth-Trill sandwiches.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Bacon was mentioned in a 2009 Hyperspace-exclusive release, "Dining at Dex's", which was written by Gregory Walker in the style of an in-universe menu for Dex's Diner.[1] The varieties of bacon named on the menu were intentional references to various bits of Star Wars lore,[4] but it did not necessarily specify any connection between those pre-existing elements and the bacon. For example, there is no explicit connection between the tailring or nuna and the varieties named for them.[1]

A 2013 video game, Star Wars: Tiny Death Star included an item called the Krayt bacon burger, but did not provide an explicit connection to the pre-existing bacon.[5]

  3. The Last of the Jedi: Underworld establishes that Dex's Diner was destroyed by the Galactic Empire. The Essential Reader's Companion dates that novel to the year 18 BBY. The New Essential Chronology states that the Empire was formed in 19 BBY, so Dex's Diner was destroyed either during 19 BBY or 18 BBY.
