Meet Fresh

This is an international chain was founded by "Sister and Brother Fu," according to their website. It's a Taiwanese dessert boutique that is focused on using taro balls, jellies and traditional Taiwanese ingredients.

Meet Fresh’s menu is huge. There’s almost no end to the desserts options, ranging from bubble waffles to tofu-based puddings to Asian shaved ice. With scant descriptions, the menu does little to help you out. Customers are forced to use pictures and context clues to navigate. But when there’s sugar involved, it’s hard to go wrong.

Meet Fresh is best known for their shaved ice, which is served in shareable platters meant for 3 or 4 people. Each dessert comes with a heap of shaved ice, drenched in condensed milk and different flavored syrups. The black sugar boba shaved ice ($13.25) is one of the chain’s most popular. The shaved ice base is soaked in a mixture of black sugar syrup and condensed milk.

It’s topped with black sugar tapioca balls, sweetened red beans and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The dessert makes for a unique combination of creamy, chewy and icy all at once. Other flavor combinations include the mango milk (milk and mango), the strawberry milk (milk and strawberry) and the mango berry (a delectable mixture of both).

If none of the options on the menu interest you, go for the create-your-own shaved ice, an all-inclusive option that lets you choose between some interesting toppings like almond pudding, sweet potato balls and mochi.
