Themed Restaurant Find: Megawatt

by - Friday, November 24, 2017

Megawatt is a small American/ Mexican stop near Quezon City. It hasn't caught my attention since it first existed, until my sister asked me to accompany her on a foodventure.
I promised my sister to take her to Megawatt in the afternoon, after my visit to a caterer in BF homes. This was a definite plus, since Megawatt has a tie up with Eatigo, and we got to book a table for 3 people at 50% off the bill. What a catch!

We arrived Megawatt a little before 3pm and the place was empty. It's located just above a well patronized car wash. Parking is a bit of a problem, though. There's a single slot available, but one personnel from the car wash made us park at the sidewalk. 

We took time to order since we wanted to try a lot of different items, plus everything is priced affordably (aside from the 50% discount), which gave us the idea that we can order as much as we want! And because me and my sister wanted different dishes, I asked her to order what she wants instead, and I shared those with her.

Megawatt Platter P285
A platter with mozzarella tots, ohm-nion (onion) rings, chicken pops & crispy fries, and came with 3 sauces: their own ketchup (I assume), mayo, and jalapeno. I liked everything included in this platter, since these are the most enjoyed finger food almost everywhere. Something you might find noteworthy is that their crispy fries are like chopped up twister fries (And I love twister fries). 

Fried Lasagna P178
The fried lasagna was a good concept, not too much deviating from the lasagna we all love, except that its taste fell short of my expectations. I don't know what the gravy-like topping was, but it tasted like dissolved bread. The lasagna tasted good though, plus the crispy outer coating made it more enjoyable. I think it would've tasted a lot better if the bechamel wasn't cut out of the picture. 

Pork Kimchi Burrito P215
The pork kimchi burrito is a bit tough to judge because I don't appreciate kimchi that much. The taste of their pork was delicious. It was well flavored and tender. The burrito also has a few strips of spam that added the salty contrast to the kimchi's bit of sourness. It's best for people who enjoy kimchi (and spam?).

Beef Taco P199
My sister loved the beef taco that she ate the whole order (while I only got to have a little taste of its toppings). She argued that this is more of a shawarma than a burrito, probably because the toppings are a bit similar. The beef was flavor-packed. This coupled with their generosity with the cheddar cheese made me like their beef taco.

Chicken & Waffles P175
(Also available in 3 and 6 pieces of chicken) I think their chicken and waffles was the most I had on this visit. The chicken had a lot of spices that makes it a greater combination with rice, if you're into that. But, the waffles, which were already dusted with powdered sugar and drizzled with maple syrup, also tasted delicious. The kids (and kids at heart) will enjoy this.

Ube Milkshake P158
The ube milkshake was served is a bulb-shaped glass. This is actually why I ordered this drink in the first place (haha, although I think most of their drinks are served in a container like this as well). The taste of the milk was stronger than that of the ube, with the latter still recognizable. We happily shared an order of this, since the glass was a bit taller than we imagined.

You may not usually care about how restaurants hand you your bill, but you'll certainly be shocked with Megawatt's way.  

There are also some collector's items, games, and other novelty items on display that are actually on sale, although I don't know if you can get the item on the spot. The seller's name and contact details are posted on the display's glass.

Overall we had a nice time at Megawatt. I can't say for certain if I'll be back, though, but my boyfriend expressed his desire to try out their food, so I guess when that happens, I'll get to try their burger.
