Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out in theaters this month, and Alamo Drafthouse is prepared with a special menu just for the film. Printed fittingly on a Millennium Falcon menu, dishes range from nerf strips, Wookiee-inspired crepes made with "wasaka" berries, and Jabba’s critter fritters. Pretend you’re drinking at Mos Eisley Cantina while sipping on gold membrosia. Helpfully, the descriptions explain the references, too. Check out the full menu below.

The Alamo Drafthouse menu will be available at all locations of of the movie theater throughout the country for screenings of the film starting on Thursday, December 17.

Star Wars Menu Specials

"What an incredible smell you've discovered!"

Yoda Soba Salad
Chilled Soba Noodles, Spinach, Shaved Brussels Sprouts, Nori, Avocado, Cucumbers, Seared Tofu, Sesame Seeds. With Soy-Ginger Dressing.

The Wookiees are vegetarians and one of their delicacies is the Wasaka berry, a fruit that looks very much like a raspberry.

Besides lording over a vast criminal empire, Jabba enjoyed eating the various insect-like creatures native to Tatooine (deep fried, of course).
