Meet Fresh Gurney Paragon Penang

Meet Fresh : a tale of 2 masters, Mr. & Mrs. Fu, who were persistent in creating and preserving the traditional taste of Taiwanese desserts. And Voila! Meet Fresh was born and all of us now get to taste the handmade & freshly prepared wholesome Taiwanese desserts. I just got back from Taiwan, and this visit to Meet Fresh made me long to be back in Taiwan again.

A great place to chill out and get your Taiwanese dessert fix. They are located at the ground floor of Gurney Paragon. You won't miss the shop as it is always crowded with people at night. 

Clean kitchen to ensure hygienic preparation of the yummy desserts. 

They have a wide range of choices to choose from. There's something for everyone, from cold to hot, sweet QQ mochi, Tofu, beverages.. the list goes on and on. It is a great place for the whole family.  

This red gadget is given to you after you place your order, and it will light up and vibrate when your order is ready. Cool right?

Great ambiance with air conditioning. 

They have a lot of seating so don't worry about waiting for tables.

I always impressed  by Taiwanese tableware. Bigger spoons compare to our local spoon size. 

Meet Fresh Signature Herb Jelly (Hot), RM6.90. It comes with fresh Taro balls, honey beans, pearls and roasted peanuts. I love this hot dessert because it is not too sweet and great in flavor. 

This signature dessert taste great served cold as well, Meet Fresh Signature Herb Jelly (Cold), RM6.90. Herb Jelly, Herb blended ice, Taro Balls and cream. Is a plus one for adding the high quality cream. It actually improve the aroma and creaminess of the dessert. Yum! is a MUST TRY item at MEET FRESH.

Another MUST TRY item is this black & white QQ Mochi, RM8.90. Chilled, QQ, sweet & fragrant brown sugar sauce topped with crispy coconut flake. It is quite expensive though but it definitely worth every RM you spend.  MUST TRY!!!

Little taro balls in white gourd tea with cream, RM 5.90.  This beverage was not too sweet, fragrant and great for me after all the desserts I had.

Hi Wong,

It really depend on people. Some said they like BB's taro balls and Meet Fresh herb jelly combine in one bowl.

For me both taste awesome, so my concern is which shop is nearest. Personally, I love Meet Fresh QQ mochi which BB don't have.
