- "The secret to our mouthwatering nerfsteak is the seasoning: a unique blend of Serrian salt, tertium, punctil and black hole pepper that's been handed down in my family for generations."
- ―The menu at Dex's description of nerfsteak and eggs
Black hole pepper was a type of pepper used as a seasoning in cooking. The Besalisk chef Dexter Jettster's eatery, Dex's Diner, which was located in the CoCo Town district of the planet Coruscant, used it to flavor several dishes. A 12.5 breakfast dish consisting of Nerf steak and two gartro eggs used the pepper as part of a special seasoning which had been passed down in Jettster's family for generations and consisted of the pepper, Serrian salt, punctil, and tertium. Gartro egg salad sandwiches, a lunch dish costing 5.5, also used the pepper along with Serrian salt as seasoning for gartro egg salad with emulsauce, Boontaspiced mustard and taba leaves all served on therm-zapped Pseudograin bread. As a dinner meal Dex's served grilled Opee sea killer fillet seasoned with the pepper and Roonan lemon, then served with celto and Iskalonian tartar sauce all for 9.7. Each of these dishes was served prior to the eatery's destruction in around 18 BBY.
