Getting a small jump on the coming craze for Wurstkuche Venice, Daily Fresh Deli opened yesterday to sling Vienna sausages on Ocean Park, housed in the same strip-mall where The Counter started. The quick-service grill has a selection of five wieners, including a chili dog, Polish sausage, and double dog, as well as a short selection of simple sandwiches, vegetable soup, salads, and grilled cheese and chicken sandwiches to-go. More dishes will be added in the coming weeks, as will seating, but the focus here will remain mostly on Vienna hot dogs, which should keep the surrounding workforce satiated with sausages until The ‘Kuche steps in with their rabbit and rattlesnake varieties.
