Allston has done it again.
Although it’s a little rat-filled, garbage-smelling hellhole, it attracts good eateries, especially those that are vegetarian.
After some name discrepancies, FoMu opened about a week ago as the city’s first entirely non-dairy ice cream shop—if you can even call it ice cream.
Actually, an employee informed me that you can. Although there are no animal products to be found in FoMu’s treats, they’re made from a coconut cream base.
It was slow when I went in Wednesday afternoon, but the staff was friendly. One suggested I try the salted caramel flavor, and another suggested the dark & stormy. Both were so good! Neither of them tasted too far off from real ice cream. The salted caramel was almost chewy and not too salty. The dark & stormy tasted better than dark rum and ginger ever should.
I ended up purchasing a small avocado ($4), which was also delicious! Avocado’s a hard flavor to pinpoint, and also just plain weird.
FoMu managed to nail it and added what tasted like a hint of mint.
If you’re looking to support good vegan treats, FoMu might be for you. Lactose intolerant? Leave that lactate pill at home for once. Girls, drag your friends away from the number of frozen yogurt eateries in Boston. They’re all the same, anyway.
FoMu also offers tea, smoothies (strawberry lemonade!), and coffee. Soft-serve’s on its way. You can check it out along with other Allston eateries at Taste of Allston on Saturday.
