King of Indo Street Food
Our Martabak / Indo-Pancake
Martabak is the King of Indonesian Street Food. This is a very popular street food that can be eaten as a sweet treat or savory snack. Everyone loves Martabak Manis, a very thick pancake with the traditional filling chocolate sprinkle, crush peanuts, sesame seed, condense milk and/or cheese.
What Makes Indo-Food So Great?
Indonesian food reflects the diversity of the Indonesian people. Being an archipelago composed of over 17,000 islands, each with their own history of foreign influences, Indonesian food is a mixture of tastes from all over the world, with its own unique twist.
Indonesian foods have always been known as melting pots of flavor, with unique mixes of ingredients that are sure to entice every last taste-bud. Here at Papa Don we aspire to introduce those unique flavors to the melting pot that is New York City.
