Build, Shop and Dine at BuildPlus + Megawatt Banawe, QC

There’s so many concept stores popping in every part of Metro Manila, but I dare ask you guys if you have seen a place where you can get building products, kitchenware and a restaurant all in one place? Not a new concept perhaps as IKEA has that under their belt, but a full-blown restaurant inside a one-stop-shop for your home? I guess not.

One Sunday afternoon I found myself riding with my friends to Banawe Quezon City to visit this new, innovative concept store named BuildPlus + Megawatt which opened last May 2019. Btw, a concept store is, by definition, a place where new ideas are put together in a bid to enhance the shopper experience and increase sales. In addition, many concept stores offer experimental elements such as a café or exhibition space, enhancing their appeal to those shoppers seeking a particular lifestyle.

BuildPlus+ is a build, shop and dine concept that offers the everyday and professional home and kitchen improvers who are looking for a unique and value for money construction and kitchen tools store, BuildPlus+ is the only retail hub that operates as a one-stop shop for different arrays of items ranging from quality tools, lighting fixtures and accessories to car care necessities and kitchen and homeware products. 

They are the official concept store in the area of INGCO brand of Power Tools and Equipment -- a renowned quality tools with European Standards. We carry the complete line of products of INGCO. BuildPlus+ also do carry some other brands including: Extreme Brand of Tools and Equipment, Jr. Kawasaki Tools, Bosny Spray Paints and Hardware Products, FireStop - Portable Fire Extinguisher, Meguiar's Car Care Products, CleanPRO / PandS / TAC (Car Care Chemicals and necessities), Kitchen Circle (Kitchenware necessities), FSL and Philip's Lighting, ROYU and Firefly Lighting Accessories, ONDOY boats (rescue and re-creational heavy duty plastic boats), Unique lighting fixtures and many more!

What sets their concept apart from the other home hardware retailers is that they have integrated 2 of the most frequent activities all of us do which is shopping and dining! Under the same roof is their full-blown dining store named Megawatt - Pizza and Steak, a powerplant inspired restaurant that offers succulent steaks as well as awesome pizzas, burgers, chickens and more!  Not only that, Megawatt is also offering diners an option to have a Keto upgrade on select meals and a special Keto-selection on the menu.

Of course, we looked around the store and found some very interesting products. Gosh I had to stop myself from buying stuff so we just enjoyed the food that they offer with their restaurant side of the business which included:

Nacho Ordinary Nachos – Megawatt use pizza chips for their nachos instead of the usual nacho chips or wonton which make it tastier.

Chicharon Bulaklak – deep-fried ruffled fat that is a popular Filipino appetizer. Surprisingly you can eat this if you’re on a Keto diet as this is high in fat. Well as a Pinay who love street food, I can never say no to this, on diet or not haha!

Megawatt House Fried Chicken with Waffle – this ain't no house that fried chicken built; only fried chicken built on the house. The chicken was tasty, tender and juicy. The skin was crispy too! These were paired with waffles, a very Southern USA flavor. Oh and by the way their gravy is refillable, so go ahead and indulge!

Tomahawk Pork Chops with Cilantro Rice – this is for the meat lover and probably the star of this lunch. A long, bone-in chop, cut from the middle of the loin and down through the rib. It's tender and packed with flavor. We tried this with cilantro rice and man that two is a power tandem. Love this dish!

Pepperoni Pizza – cracker thin 12 in (diameter) crispy cracker crust pizza baked with cheese on the edges. This one has pepperoni ham toppings on it. I like the thin crust pizza as long as it’s not that crispy. This one is just right not hard or crispy and not soft too.

Cheese Pizza – cracker thin 12 in (diameter) crispy cracker crust pizza baked with cheese on the edges. This one has Parmesan, Mozzarella, Gruyère & Feta cheese on white sauce. I love this, simple but packed with flavor.

Sunny Side Bacon on Crust Croizza – 10 inches by x 5 inches croissant au pizza. It’s flaky, crusty dough-fection! No more wasted end crust. I actually like this and it’s a perfect brunch or snack dish

Crab Tomalley Over Shirataki Noodles – one the keto dishes at Megawatt. Made with creamy crab fat on Japanese konjac yam noodles. This is a very interesting dish as it’s pasta but it doesn’t contain any carbohydrate in it! The taste is very seafood flavor which I totally dig!

Megawatt Chicken Poppers – original flavor chicken pops, one of the many good starters at Megawatt. Buy the way you can order this in original, parmesan or buffalo flavor.

Keto Burger – made with Angus beef and instead of bun, it is sandwiched with lettuce leaves and paired with Keto Fries which is made of mozzarella sticks coated with ground almonds with Cajun seasoning.

Lick Iced Tea and Lick Island Mango – refreshing fruit tea flavors. The peach one was my favorite. The new Lick Island mango flavor is made from the sweetest & best cultivated Philippine Mangoes. Definitely an island paradise in a bottle!

Chupa Chups Drink – remember your favorite lollipop flavors from Chupa-Chups? Now it comes in refreshing strawberry and grapes flavor.

And did I mention that their store is pet friendly? Oh yes! You can bring your doggos with you while you shop and dine, just be sure to clean up after them and they are behaved. My friend brought her pupper and the people from Megawatt even gave her a doggy bowl where my friend put some water and food for her fur baby. Lovely!
