A martabak from JTown Cafe
I've been meaning to check out this shop (#B1-04/05, Midpoint Orchard, 220 Orchard Road) for a while now for their martabak manis, an Indonesian sweet pancake which is quite similar to the Chinese styled peanut pancakes commonly known as ban chang kueh. We got the campur option which had a sprinkle of ground peanuts, shredded cheese, some butter (or perhaps margarine) and chocolate rice. The martabak was made on order - so that freshness spoke some for the moist and springy texture. And yes, it was both sweet and a little salty. I certainly wouldn't mind dropping by once in a while for one of these. Perhaps another time with their bakmie.
