Not much has been said about the little pockets of gold in Quezon City, but those who frequent the area know that QC is a wonderland of under-the-radar cafés and restaurants. No one can ever master the city like the back of their hand because there’s always something new and unique popping up every so often.

And if you’re on a quest to satisfy your sweet tooth with unique and obscure dessert finds, head to these dessert shops in QC.

Talk about a stunning transformation of the staple movie snack. Kettle Korn is the first one to ever put up a specialty popcorn dessert shop locally and people are loving it. You can choose from a variety of “gourmet” flavors like Caramel Green Apple and Matcha, or opt for the healthier popcorn snacks they have available. But their signature offering is the Popstix, a popcorn ball on a stick dipped in liquid nitrogen for that smoky effect you have to capture on camera.
