Martabak Pecenongan 78 & D’Bakmie, Carlton

MELBOURNE | Julie and Andy Santoso, the duo who brought Indonesian chain D’Penyetz & D’Cendol to Melbourne in 2019, have just brought another popular Indonesian spot to town. It’s martabak specialists Martabak Pecenongan 78 & D’Bakmie, and you can find it next door to the Carlton D’Penyetz. I visited for What’s on Melbourne to find out more.

Sweet martabak manis, or Indonesian pancakes, are what Martabak Pecenongan 78 are best known for. They’re tall, dense plain or pandan flavoured pancakes, pan fried in butter and filled with multiple toppings. These include things like Nutella, Ovomaltine, peanut butter, cheese, chocolate sprinkles, peanuts, and sesame seeds.

Lesser known in Australia, but well worth your time, is the super crispy, layered, fried roti-like snack filled with things like beef or chicken, egg, spring onion, acar (Indonesian pickles), and spicy sambal for dipping. Also try the maratabak tipker. It’s a thin, crispy treat filled with similar things as the more popular martabak manis.

If you’re in the mood for more savoury options, the ‘D’Bakmie’ part of the restaurant’s name refers to another popular Indonesian chain who shares the space with Martabak Pecenongan. On that part of the menu, you’ll find comforting street-food favourites like kulit ayam goreng (fried chicken skin), bakmi Jakarta (fresh-made noodles with house sauce, diced stewed chicken, mushrooms, garlic oil, and vegetables), and ceker kaki lima (hawker-style chicken feet).
