Spring is in the air, and so are sweet deals from Oahu’s grass jelly eatery, Meet Fresh.

“The weather in Honolulu is always warm and good for an icy dessert,” says Meet Fresh USA franchisee and Honolulu location owner Eric Li. “We aim to bring our customers the most authentic and delicious desserts with an unforgettable dining experience.”

The restaurant is ready to keep guests cool during the upcoming season with its Double Taro Signature ($11.75), which features grass jelly, shaved ice, taro balls, taro paste and ice cream.

Meet Fresh also offers Shaved Ice ($15.75) and Tofu Pudding ($8.50) in many flavors, such as black sugar boba and red bean. Meet Fresh imports key ingredients from its certified kitchen in Taiwan to bring customers authentic flavors.

“In addition, our tofu pudding items have hot and cold options, so it’s always good to choose and enjoy our tofu puddings on a cooler night to soothe your body and soul!” Li says.

For those who want to take a load off, the restaurant offers an open-air dining area where guests can enjoy their desserts.

“We want to provide a relaxing time to our customers and make them feel re-energized and happy when they leave,” Li says. “Eventually, we hope our customers can enjoy a wonderful time with us, and we become a part of their daily lives.”

As summer draws closer, Li plans to continue serving Meet Fresh’s signature items and present a monthly Tuesday deal.
