POP CAFE by Kettle Korn: Liquid Nitrogen-Charged Popcorn Pops! @POPCafePH

POP Cafe-43.jpg

POP CAFE is the first Liquid Nitrogen-charged Popcorn Cafe in the Philippines by Kettle Korn--originally created by RFM's Joey Concepcion--and is the latest craze in enjoying this popular snack.

This is the first time I've seen liquid nitrogen used in popcorn. The nitrogen not only provides a cooling effect but also gives a smoky fun factor that even kids can enjoy. The popcorn kernels are made from whole grains and popped fresh in-store too, making for a healthy treat.

We recently tried all the flavors and offerings of Pop Cafe. Here's what to expect and what we recommend...

KIWA Korean Grill-42.jpg

KIWA is an authentic, fine dining Korean Grill by the Kung Bok Kung restaurant group. The name "Kiwa"--the traditional Korean roof tile--was used in Manila so that it can be easily pronounced by Filipinos while still highlighting its Korean roots. 

The restaurant is best known for its authentic charcoal-grilled seasoned beef ribs and Korean dishes cooked by world-class Korean chefs. They use an underground exhaust system so that you won't get any smoke stains on your shirt.

For Korean food lovers, this is a must-visit restaurant at Solaire resort.
