Meet Fresh Open its First Store in the Philippines

The face of pure joy that only dessert and/or milk tea can provide...🍨 💭 So guys, Meet Fresh! He will be the freshest dessert or drink you will ever have!

So glad that this well loved dessert place from Taiwan has finally arrived to Manila, with its first store located at Level 5, Podium Mall.

Stopped by for a bowl of Signature Icy Grass Jelly that comes with one creamer. Mixed w/ grass jelly, herbal blended ice & taro balls, this is literally one of my fave desserts right now 😍 The grass jelly is so refreshing and I love the texture. Goes really well with the taro balls that are oh-so-chewy! The dessert bowl is HUGE and could easily be shared between two people. Perfect dessert for two... 💕 or for one? Or maybe that's just me. Yay! A dessert bowl just for me.

I got to try the Fresh Milk Black tea with Boba too, and the verdict is...

Just go, it's so good!😍  I love that the flavors of their drinks and desserts are well balanced and not overly sweet! There is a right balance of flavor when you mix in milk with sweets.

Meet Fresh is known for its tasty Taro Balls, refreshing herbal jelly, and tofu pudding among others. The products are always ‘Freshly made, cooked and served’ utilizing traditional Taiwanese methods to ensure that it brings the best and the healthiest desserts to its customers.

“Meet Fresh” was founded by a traditional agricultural farming family in the City of Taichung (central part of Taiwan). Its two masters, Mr. and Mrs. Fu (the eldest of the Fu family), were raised in an age where society in Taiwan was changing rapidly due to technology improvements and automation. But they still believed in making desserts the old-fashioned way to preserve the unforgettable natural sweetness of the traditional taste. Meet Fresh was established to fulfill the Fu’s deepest desire to share their handmade, freshly prepared wholesome tastes with everyone. They were persistent as to how they made their desserts, with the principal value that each dessert has to be handmade with the freshest natural ingredients and with no added preservatives.
