NoMu or FoMu, it's still fantastic!!
Earlier today, I had the BEST, most FANTASTICALLY FABULOUS, ice cream sundae, at the grand opening of FoMu- the marvelous new non-dairy ice cream shop in Allston!!
My birthday's not until October, and I already told them that I want my cake from them-
The place is truly wonderful!!!!!!!!!

They call themselves NoMu Alternative Ice Cream which appears to be common along with Ice Cream Alternative with other people already making nondairy frozen confections.
Also, apparently these are the people who make the frozen desserts at Veggie Galaxy. I remember being told that they are coconut based. While no substitute in my book for real ice cream, I would definitely be satisfied by it if I could not or would not eat real ice cream again.
Boy, is the name of this place confusing. The "coming soon" signs (and the vague excuse for a website: http://www.nomuicecream.com/) have used the name NoMu, but melodyrose is quite correct that the giant sign for the now-opened shop says FoMu.
And the photos posted on Yelp show menus calling their product "ice cream," with no modifiers.
If it's non-dairy, it ain't ice cream.
I know some lactose intolerant people who will be happy to try it though.
I live so nearby but was worried to try it for the first month of its existence. Finally did. I had the Salted Caramel and my friend had the Thai Peanut. Both have the hint of coconut but texture is exactly like ice cream. Perfectly sweetened and spiced. About $4 a cone (including small tip) but I was OK to pay it for the high quality.
I strong recommend FoMu!
Finally went here yesterday. Tried/shared the Mexican Chocolate and Thai Peanut. Both three others: Pumpkin Spice, Rocky Road, and Avocado to try and share another day.
