MARTABAK MANIA II

The analogy is simple: cupcake is to the West as martabak is to the Indonesians. Think of a thick pancake that can be the size of a medium or large skillet that can be sweet or savory. The flavors are endless especially at Eat Happens where the combinations are mind boggling. One or two visits are not enough to savor all the martabak – sweet or otherwise. This particular visit to Eat Happens had my attention towards a “new” martabak which had an eyebrow raising name, Men in Black. Apropos name or not (from the top of my head I am thinking Oreo Overload or Oreo Treat or Oreo Kick), my curiosity was absolutely piqued. Men in Black turned out to be a good choice. The taste was an intermingling of cream cheese, crushed oreo, and condensed milk, which to my surprise, blended into a smooth-on-the-palate, harmonious tug of war between sour and sweet. A “pizza” slice and a half is more than enough to satisfy that martabak craving. A bonus: it is light on the wallet. It is only IDR90,000 (PhilP371) for a medium size Men in Black.
