There’s no denying the rich local food scene we have here in Penang. From Nasi Lemak to Maggi Goreng for a late-night supper, it seems like Penangites will never go hungry. But, as much as we enjoy savouring food that has been a favourite among ourselves, sometimes a unique twist is mandatory. And this is what Projek Nasi Lemak has done, they’ve elevated local favourite dishes and turn them into something saliva-drooling. Keep reading to find out more!
Feast On Lobsters With Locals’ Favourite Dishes At Projek Nasi Lemak
If you’re a true foodie at heart, you would have heard of Projek Nasi Lemak. Years ago when it first opened its doors, Penangites were seen swarming over just to get a taste of their fragrant Nasi Lemak that comes with seafood pairings.
Today, they’re serving these delectable fares over at Solaria Square, Bayan Lepas. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at what we’ve tried:
1. Nasi Lemak Lobster with Cheese
As Malaysians, we love ourselves a packet of classic Nasi Lemak. Fluffy rice cooked with coconut milk simmered with sambal alongside some crunchy Ikan Bilis, we’re already drooling. Now, here at Projek Nasi Lemak, you get a whole new invention of Nasi Lemak as it comes with lobster topped with melted cheese. Also, instead of your regular rice, you get Butterfly Pea rice. You can also find basic Nasi Lemak elements such as Ikan Bilis, groundnuts, boiled egg and sambal. Pair each component together for a flavourful bite!
2. Mee Goreng with Boston Lobster
Ever eaten Mee Goreng with Lobster? Well, you can now have a go at Projek Nasi Lemak. The lobster is firstly steamed before being torched to perfection. And that’s not all, the tender lobster meat is full of roe and when paired with something as simple as Mee Goreng, it turns out to be irresistible. If you love a little spicy kick, pair it with the sambal!
3. Butterfly Pea Nasi Lemak With Ikan Bawal
Aside from signature dishes that come with lobster, you can also opt for the Nasi Lemak that comes with Ikan Bawal. For this dish, you will have the option to pair it with either curry gravy or sambal kicap cili potong for an extra kick. As the Butterfly Pea rice is fluffy, it complements the crispy texture of the Ikan Bawal, making it a perfect combo.
Complete Your Meal With Assorted Beverages
1. Coconut Shake
Coconut Shake is Projek Nasi Lemak’s signature drink. This thirst quencher consists of coconut water topped with a scoop of ice cream for just the right amount of sugar.
2. Lemon Grass Fizi
If you’re looking for a fizzy drink to tone things down, then try out the Lemon Grass Fizi. It’s refreshing and slightly acidic, making it perfect for an after-meal drink.
3. Teh Ais with Mango
One of the new drinks recently added to the menu is Teh Ais with Mango. Yet another creation that’s out of the norm, this drink combines Malaysians’ favourite drink, Teh Tarik with mango cubes as toppings. The mango cubes give the drink a unique texture.
So, the next time you’re nearby Bayan Lepas and you feel like going on a seafood feast, then drop by at Projek Nasi Lemak. There’s no other spots in Penang that gives such a modern twist to classic Malaysian favourites. Enjoy and goodbye!
