Mystery Diner: Fuze food. Fast, fresh, clean eating!

With world-inspired offerings, Fuze has gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options

The Fuze Food and Smoothie Bar is run out of a pretty awesome custom-built trailer kitchen. Everything needed to prepare their extensive menu is stuffed into a food truck-size space near the beach on the corner of 3rd Avenue and Laurier Street in Athalmer (on the way into Invermere from Highway 93/95).

With world-inspired offerings, Fuze has gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options and the super friendly owner/chef and staff will take every allergy into consideration when preparing your food. Everything is made fresh to order with local, organically-sourced food. Fuze sources from small local farmers and even grows some of their own herbs.

There’s outdoor seating at picnic tables covered by umbrellas. The area is very clean, and the brightly coloured flower and herb boxes that decorate their space enhance the al fresco dining experience. Or, you can pick up your order and wander down to the beach to enjoy the spectacular scenery.

We’ve dropped in several times and everything has been sooooo good. The Legendary Donair features spicy seasoned Zehnder beef, lettuce, onion, tomato, chive Greek yogurt and feta, all rolled in a soft pita with classic, sweet donair sauce.

The Butter Chicken Wrap is made with chicken sautéed with onion and garlic, creamy butter chicken sauce, cilantro, chive Greek yogurt and feta all rolled in a wrap and grilled. We’ve also had the Thai Peanut Wrap with rice noodles, peanut sauce, chicken, carrot, cucumber, peppers, basil, cheese, lettuce and Sriracha sauce grilled in a whole wheat wrap. Did we mention how flavourful this food is? And big… we really should have shared! Maybe next time!

For dessert? We had to try the gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free chocolate chickpea cookie. How could that taste good? Made with peanut butter, organic cocoa, carob chips and honey… yummy!

There are a large number of smoothies to be had and they all look fabulous. First, we tried the Tropical Sun Smoothie made with mango, pineapple, banana, orange and coconut milk. Apparently, it’s the hangover cure, but not needing a cure, we can’t confirm if it works. However, we can say that the smoothie was refreshing, full of flavour and oh so good. After a taste test of the Berry Awesome and the Classy Peach smoothies, the verdict remains the same.

For your convenience, Fuze has a website where you can order online, then go and pick up. What a great little restaurant. We look forward to our next visit.
