Meet fresh originated from Mr and Ms Fu who were born and raised in a traditional farming family from Central Taiwan. They wanted to share that handmade, freshly prepared wholesome taste with everyone and so Meet fresh was born. Their mission is to be persistent as to how they make their desserts, it must be handmade with the freshest and natural ingredients with no added preservatives.

Where Daniang Dumpling used to be at the corner of Dixon and Goulburn is now the home of Meet fresh. Traditional Taiwanese desserts can be difficult to sell to the non-Taiwanese. Firstly, we are not grown up with eating this type of dessert, they don’t come in a form of oven, so can’t really rely on warmness or crumbly texture to draw attentions. Also, they are not presented in a colourful way like cupcakes or ice-cream. Thirdly, we questioned ourselves as to what is really inside the bowl? Main ingredients are black grass jelly, slippery like taro rice balls, yellow mushy sweet potatoes, little pearls that reminds me of Easyway. Unfortunately I am not a big fan of all the above but after some research, good things about this popular chain store is opportunity for you to make your own combination of dessert and the freshness of the ingredients. My researched told me that if the rice balls are not fresh it will taste like rock or have a rubbery texture. The ratio of sweet red bean soup and peals was also proportionate.

Conclusion: Overall, I think this newly dessert house provide a new dessert place for catch up or late nights. The queues are crazily long and very hard to view the menu without being squashed. If you are grown up with this type of dessert you will love it. Otherwise it is an acquired taste and may not suit everybody.
