鲜芋仙 Meet Fresh: A Taste of Traditional Taiwanese Dessert @Sydney

Happiness is having desserts, made with love, on my overseas trip 🙂

Meet Fresh originates from a traditional taiwanese couple – Mr and Mrs Fu. They insisted that all their desserts in Meet Fresh are made from the freshest ingredients with no preservatives and that they are all handmade, with love~~

Dessert is on my niece as she has been eyeing their salted caramel banana waffles since day one of our sydney trip. Not too bad, she can resist it until day four, haha… So here we are for desserts after a light dinner.

Of course my niece ordered the salted caramel banana waffles that she set her eyes on. The waffles, stacked up to form a small tower, with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream, topped with caramel sauce, salt and chopped walnuts. Banana slices are placed around the cream. Waffles are still warm when served! Such nice presentation make us drool already – slurps! I like to cut a piece of the waffle, place some ice-cream and cream followed by the banana slice and eat them all together. Only one word to describe it – shiok!

I had the traditional herbal jelly dessert #4 on the menu with taro, red beans, pearls and shaved ice. Their shaved ice is slightly rougher in texture as compared to those in Singapore, and it tends to melt slower. Not sure if its the rough texture of the shaved ice or the cold weather that makes it melt slower? Any idea, anyone? Herbal jelly is smooth and not sweet. The sweetness of this dessert comes from the soft cooked red beans and chewy pearls. The taro (yam) is bland but retained it natural yam flavour. When eaten together, its gives off the right sweetness.

My cousin had the warm red bean tofu pudding. The tofu pudding is served in big pieces, with soft-cooked red beans and slightly sweet sugar syrup. Tofu pudding is soft and smooth with fragrant taste of fresh soya beans. Paired with the slightly sweet sugar syrup, the taste is just right.

Meet Fresh also has other desserts like taro ball desserts, where you can have different sides such as lotus seeds, green or red beans, barley, sweet potatoes etc to go with their signature handmade taro balls. Or if you are a crushed ice lover, they have crushed ice cold desserts as well. They also have drinks such as winter melon teas, traditional teas or whipped cream teas which are good to-go.

They are located at various places in Australia. I went to the one situated at Central Sydney, in Chinatown, 13 Goulbum Street, Haymarket 2000. Their opening hours are from 11am till 12 midnight or 1am on weekends.

Do try Meet Fresh taiwanese desserts when you are in Sydney. Enjoy Mr and Mrs Fu’s Meet Fresh desserts which are handmade, with love!
