Restaurant Review: Arsaga's at the Depot


This past Saturday, I took advantage of my healthy weekend in Fayetteville to take a stroll down Skull Creek Trail to Dickson Street.  My girlfriend, Reva, and I headed to Arsaga's at the Depot for brunch, and we spent the afternoon enjoying good food and conversation.


At 2 pm on the first Sunday to see sun and temperatures above 40 degrees in weeks, we found The Depot to be understandably bustling.  There were people outside on the patio and inside the building, and although they were busy, we got a table quickly.  Our server greeted us and warned us that food might be a bit slow, and that we might have to wait 30 minutes or so.  We told her there was no rush, that we were enjoying the afternoon, and we ordered drinks.  Reva got an iced americano, and I decided on a pot of yerba mate.  We sipped water and looked over the menu.



My eyes went right to the salads, since that's my meal of choice as of late.  There were a few that sounded good, with a few modifications.  Our waitress came back with our drinks, and I chatted with her for a bit about the salads.  When I mentioned I was vegan, she suggested I order "The Townie."


How had I missed this on the menu?!  For a restaurant in Fayetteville to have vegan identified items on the menu made me happy.  This town is definitely coming along since I left, and I knew I had to order "The Townie."  Now, bread and vegan sausages aren't something I have been consuming, but I decided to give it a try and leave it as a one time treat.  I'm so glad that I did.





To our pleasant surprise, our food came out pretty quickly.  Reva ordered savory crepes and said they were great!  I was very happy when my food arrived, and each bit was perfect.  The tofu scramble had deep flavors and great seasoning.  The spices were melded in the tofu, and every bite was savory and delicious.  The sprouted bread was light and crispy, and I ate it slowly and savored the bread-y goodness.  When I bit into the maple sausage, though, was when I was completely sold on this dish.  The hand made links had a great texture, and the maple syrup came through strong in each bite.  The dish also came with roasted potatoes that were creamy and lightly seasoned.  Lastly, there was a bit of fruit and tomato salad to round out the dish.  I had a lot of fun at the end putting the blueberries into the tofu scramble.  I think I may be onto something there.




When I set off on my walk from Wilson Park to Dickson Street that afternoon, I never expected that I would find such a delicious vegan breakfast.  I highly recommend you stroll on down to The Depot and give it a try as soon as possible!
