TESTING SOME CONTENT HERE FOR THE HOT VEGAN HAVEN

 
Hot Vegan Haven
Allston’s Union Square

The last 12 months have given vegans and vegetarians plenty to chew on, from the opening of Cambridge diner and bakery Veggie Galaxy to new outposts of Clover and Life Alive. But if local herbivores have a headquarters, it’s at the corner of Cambridge and North Beacon streets, home to gourmet vegan pizza place Peace o’ Pie (487 Cambridge Street, Allston, 617.787.9884), vegan Asian kitchen Grasshopper Restaurant (1 North Beacon Street, Allston, 617.254.8883), and now alternative ice creamery and café FoMu (481 Cambridge Street, Allston, 617.903.3276). Opened in late May, it serves coconut-based (and therefore vegan) ice “cream” in enticing flavors like bananas Foster, Dark & Stormy, Thai peanut, and salted caramel, all locally made, free of refined sugar, and delicious enough to convert skeptical omnivores. Pretty sweet.
