Reviews of Meet Fresh
Meet Fresh seems to be one of many Taiwanese dessert houses that are still going strong whilst others are losing their charm as quick as dew in summer morning.
I believe this is partly because they serve extensive range of desserts and the serving size is absolutely very large. I bought my taro ball dessert and there were abundance of ingredients circling a mountain of shaved ice, I wasn't surprised that I could not finish it all.
The large portion does come at quite a price, though. Although this is quite reasonable, in Chinatown currency the price might translate to a lot of other dessert options.
Size and price aside, the desserts are very authentic and tasted very good, although the sweetness level might be a little too much for some (at least it was a little too much for me after eating it for a while).
They also sell tea drinks such as milk tea and cream tea. There is one dessert called Noodle Jelly Crushed Ice which sounds very interesting but I am yet to get myself to order this one.
I'd heard of Meet Fresh before, but I always thought it was "Meat Fresh" and had assumed it was a butcher. Anyway, as it turns out, you can get Taiwanese style desserts with an assortment of toppings.
Not knowing the menu, I found it a little overwhelming when it came to ordering but I managed to choose something I quite liked. The servings are huge and are very sweet, so approach with caution. Asian desserts can be a bit of an acquired taste as well so stick with the mainstream items on the menu unless you know what you are doing.
