|Diorama of the Mos Eisley Cantina from Star Wars.com|
In Episode IV, Obi Wan disdainfully described Mos Eisley as "The most wretched hive of scum and villainy". And he had good reason, for the Mos Eisley spaceport was a favorite stopover of bounty hunters and criminals of all shapes and races in the galaxy.
The Mos Eisley Cantina is one of the most famous landmarks in the Star Wars saga. It was here where Luke and Obi-Wan met Han Solo and Chewbacca for the first time.

My Mos Eisley Carinderia would be different. I want it to become "A well-loved blog of fun and fantasy".
So what if I really had a carinderia? (By the way, as a backgrounder, while I was growing up in Legazpi City, my family ran a canteen)
Consistent with the Star Wars theme, here's what some of the menu items would look like:
Appetizers: Chicken X-Wings
Veggies: EPISODE I - The Kangkong Menace
Dessert: EPISODE II - Attack of the Cones, Choco Clone Bars
Pulutan: EPISODE III - Revenge of the Sithcharon
Pasalubong: EPISODE IV - A New Hopia
Main Course: EPISODE V - The Empire Strikes Back Ribs, The Pork Unleashed, AdoBoba Fett, Nilagang ChewieBaka
Dimsum: EPISODE VI - Return of the Siomai, Wookieekiam
Soups: Darth Molo, HotoTie Fighter
Noodles: Queen Mamidala
Congee: Princess Luya
Sandwiches: Ham Solo, Darth Burger
Drinks: Coke Litesaber, Obi Wan Keno-beer
Any other suggestions? :)
