When you think of a cold, New England city like Boston, the image of ice cream probably isn’t the first thing in your mind. When you realize it is a 100% vegan ice cream shop, it seems even further from reality. But I am not complaining! FoMu ice cream is an amazing little shop with multiple locations around Boston.
FoMu is located in the little vegan paradise of Allston, right at the craziness that is Union Square. Many vegan establishments have come and gone here, so I am happy to see FoMu sticking around for a while.
On a recent trip back to Boston, I was lucky enough to stop by the Red Lentil Cafe in Watertown. The restaurant was popular and highly rated on HappyCow so I parked on Auburn Street, and headed in for dinner.
The space was very bright, clean, and well laid out. I was happily surprised at how busy it was. The tables were set up mostly for couples which lent a nice ambiance to the place, and the bright colors complimented the friendly service.
There is a little village outside Boston (right off the Pike) that should be on all vegans’ travel plans – Allston. Similar to Portland’s vegan mini mall, there is a corner at a major intersection with a vegan chinese food restaurant, vegan ice cream shop, and the newest member – Root.
Root occupies the space that used to feature Peace O’ Pie, one of my staple vegan establishments in Boston. But they occupy it well, offering something new to the scene.
