Indonesia has a lot of yummy food to satisfy our hunger. One of the yummy food that I will share with you today is Martabak Manis.
Nowadays, there are a lot of Martabak Manis seller with new flavors and variants, but it’s quite hard to find the authentic Martabak Manis legend.
Luckily, I found one authentic Martabak Manis legend that’s still existed until now in Bogor. The name of this shop is Martabak Encek (Martabak Legendaris Gang Aut Bogor).
Martabak Encek is operated from 1975 until now. Even the original owner is still making the Martabak Manis.
This Martabak Encek is a very well known Martabak Manis shop at Gang Aut (famous road in Bogor for the culinary).
He is only selling Martabak only around 6-7 hours everyday and most of the time, this Martabak Manis always runs out of ingredients before closing time. It’s very crowded. I have to wait one hour after ordering to get Martabak Manis. Luckily along the Gang Aut road has many delicious food to try so waiting one hour doesn’t matter for me.
I ordered one big pan of Martabak Manis with cheese topping for half pan and chocolate with peanut topping for the other half pan. He also uses condensed milk and margarine in the Martabak Manis.
The seller keeps the authenticity by using charcoal as a heat to make this Martabak Manis more fluffy and more fragrant.
The sweetness of this Martabak Manis also has a good balance. So you can eat many pieces of this Martabak Manis without feeling cloying.
So if you are visiting Bogor, do spend your time to try this yummy Martabak Manis.
