[ Penang ] Projek Nasi Lemak | Dato Keramat

 Will you have a day that you feel to have our proud local food - Nasi Lemak so badly? I did, sometimes.
Nasi Lemak is so famous in our country as you can see nasi lemak stall or specialists mushrooming in the town.
There is this newly opened restaurant - Projek Nasi Lemak that worth discuss by Penangites;
unlike the ordinary nasi lemak, they offer over a wide variety of add-ons!
Warn you ahead, parking is a problem at this area due to limited parking available in front of the restaurant.
Projek Nasi Lemak apply the fast food concept on their ordering process for the food part;
while the staff will get your beverage order once you have your seats.
There are total of five combination of nasi lemak available in the restaurant:
Nasi Lemak with Fried Chicken, Fried Squid, Fried Fish, Boiled Egg and Curry Prawn.
Add-on is also available from their a la carte menu, just pick get the basic nasi lemak and add-on whatever you like.
Coconut Shake | RM4 . Teh Volcano Hijau | RM3.50
In the stuffy environment (no air-conditional available in the restaurant), the cold beverages did a good job to chill us.
The coconut shake is pretty good as it has coconut fresh in it and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
We were quite curious on the Volcano beverages that stated in the menu, 
so we ordered the one with green tea; the foam is outflow from the cup when it is served, which fit the name well.
The tea scent is strong and I quite like it.
Set A - Nasi Lemak with Fried Chicken | RM8.50
Same like any other nasi lemak, serving of salted peanuts, anchovies, cucumber and boiled egg is still present,
the only thing that differ here is the blue-hue of rice that resulting from using the butterfly pea flower.
I was so excited to try their rice after seeing all the photos 
but it is quite tasteless without the help of sambal and curry, you can merely taste the coconut milk in it.
This set comes with a big piece of fried chicken thigh, crispy at the outer layer with tender meat!
Set B - Nasi Lemak with Fried Squid | RM13
The fried squid is served separately from the rice as the squid is gigantic in size.
There are different types of sambal and curry served on the nasi lemak to enhance the taste of the rice and squid.
Cutter is served as well whenever you get the Set B, for you to cut the fried squid in smaller size.
The squid is quite crispy outside and aromatic, however it's too chewy for me and I need to chew hard before devour.
Still I think I will order this on my next visit as the strong aromatic of squid keep ghosting me.
