Review of Dessert Bowls From Nine Fresh

There's always room for dessert. This is something that I would often hear and something that I wholeheartedly agree with. After all, dessert is the best way to end a wonderful meal or the best way to make up for a disastrous one. 

You just can't go wrong with desserts and when you have something like Nine Fresh, you really can't possibly go wrong no matter which way you look at things. 

My first encounter with Nine Fresh was when I was in Singapore and I loved them. They were different and they were definitely something worth trying. 

Nine Fresh is a popular Singapore dessert chain that offers Jiufen-inspired dessert bowls that will not only satisfy your sweet tooth but will also leave you fresh and full!  Nine Fresh came to the Philippines in February of last year (2020) and is currently operating in 5 locations (SM Manila, SM Fairview, SM Southmall, SM San Lazaro, and SM North). 

Nine Fresh is famous for its signature bases — bean curd made from freshly-grounded 
soya bean is almost similar to our version of taho, grass jelly, a different rendition to the familiar local gulaman, and refreshing ai-yu jelly made from the seeds of fig fruits that are lightly sweetened with black sugar-laden. Aside from that, Nine Fresh is also known for its colorful and tasty taro balls that come in four flavors — sweet potato, purple yam, matcha, and ube. These taro balls are produced daily to make sure that they’re always fresh and savory. 

The best part is that there are a variety of toppings that can add taste and color to any of your dessert bowls. Choices include black pearls, soft or roasted peanuts, lotus nuts, barley, red beans, green beans, pinto beans, eight treasure beans, sweet potatoes, yams, konjac jellies, black sugar jellies, aloe very pearl jellies, mango pearl jellies, lychee pearl jellies, passionfruit pearly jellies, grape pearly jellies and many more. 

Nine Fresh also has something for adventurous dessert lovers! If you want to create your own unique combination of flavors and textures, then the Create-Your-Own option is best for you! Just choose a dessert base then top it off with your choice of toppings. 

On top of all the dessert options, Nine Fresh also has fruit teas and milk teas on their menu and everything is pretty much less than a hundred! I have to say that the Earl Grey Milk Tea is a welcome change from all the wintermelon milk tea we've had in the past. 

Overall, I love that Nine Fresh PH is almost the same as the one in Singapore. I love that it offers new alternatives to the common dessert that Filipinos know and love. I love that you can make your own dessert bowl and that you can personalize it and have it catered to what you really want in a dessert bowl. 

This is definitely something that I would recommend that Filipinos should try because it's refreshing, different, and something that's good for the tummy, heart, and soul.
