These are the Alamo Drafthouse menu items you are looking for…or whatever, fill in one of a million Star Wars quotes here, but just know that your favorite local movie theater/eatery/drinkery is rolling out a very special menu this week in honor of the December 15 opening of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
According to a press release, the menu is inspired by a new location in the Star Wars universe (on screens) — the planet Scarif. The story locations for this new planet are sunny and beachy (yet sinister), so the Alamo culinary team has created an island-inspired menu.
Austin.com is and always has been a site that celebrates and promotes the unique people and places of Austin, TX and surrounding cities. Though many businesses, locations, and events are closed at this time, we continue to highlight those things so that you can plan to experience them in the future.
“Seeing those Storm Troopers marching in the surf in the trailer was instant inspiration,” says Alamo Drafthouse Executive Chef, Brad Sorenson. “I mean, Storm Troopers on a beach?! Complete nerd out. So for this menu I knew I wanted to zero in on that new glimpse into the STAR WARS universe and have some fun with it, crafting sort of an island vacation menu packed with exotic flavors — although, clearly, it’s no vacation on Scarif for the Rebellion.”
Menu items include the “Island Salad,” sliders with choice of fish or pulled pork, “Jerked Sweet Potatoes with Black Beans,” and “Shrimp & Avocado Toast.” These will all be offered for a limited time on a specially-designed commemorative menu, a die-cut schematic of the Death Star (don’t worry, they know fans are going to pocket them — go ahead and be a rebel, they have plenty).
Specialty cocktails include the Ford’s Gin-centric “Ice Planet” and “Forest Moon” and the creamy blended “Blue Milk Tropicale.”
