A taste of Taiwanese desserts arrives in Chinatown this weekend when Meet Fresh makes its debut on Sunday. The desserts come at the hands of “Brother and Sister Fu,” who grew up in the Feng Yuan District of Taichung, Taiwan. They stick to tradition with taro ball desserts, soft herbal jelly, a tofu pudding, shaved ice, herbal jellies, and more. Hot almond soups come in bowls and cups for $4.50 to $6.80, the typical range of prices here.

Since 2007, the brand has expanded from Taiwan to China, South Korea, Vietnam, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and California.

Diners pick up a pager to start their order, entering an item, paying with a credit card, and then waiting for a dish to be delivered.

Some of the most popular dishes include boba tofu pudding, herbal jelly, taro ball with red bean, peanut tofu pudding, milk tea with purple rice, red bean soup with taro rice balls and another with sesame rice balls, purple rice porridge with taro balls, mochi with egg pudding, and boba milk tea.

The operators of the Mongolian hot pot restaurant, Chubby Cattle, are behind Meet Fresh.
