The peak summer heat is slowly dissipating, and Meet Fresh presents diverse Taiwanese treats for both hot and cold days. From hot sweet soup to shaved ice to hot and cold teas, the eatery’s expansive menu showcases carefully crafted desserts and drinks with gigantic portions and numerous toppings.
A bestselling dessert during the summer-to-fall transition is Mini Taro Ball Tofu Pudding ($9). Silky, light tofu with a subtle nutty flavor is topped with Meet Fresh’s Mini Q — also known as Mini Taro Balls — offering small, chewy bursts of delight.
Looking for an option that warms the soul? Hot Grass Jelly Soup Signature ($9.75) combines refreshingly warm hot grass jelly liquid with Mini Q, fragrant red beans, and soft and chewy boba.
Or, perhaps a decadent icy dessert is tickling the taste buds. The towering Black Sugar Boba Milky Shaved Ice ($15) is a must-try for milk tea lovers. A bowl of fluffy shaved ice is packed with caramelized black sugar boba, fragrant red beans, soft caramel pudding and creamy vanilla ice cream.
Meet Fresh is celebrating its anniversary Sept. 19-26. During this time, visitors to its first floor Ala Moana location will be treated to 30% off one passion fruit sorbet dessert when purchasing a bowl dessert or shaved ice item (limit one promotion offer per transaction).
Desserts are suitable to share but also delectable to devour alone.
Whether summer, fall, winter or spring, Meet Fresh is a comfortable gathering place to create happy memories year-round.
