Former Chango house to become a vegan deli

Echo Park — Last week we told you that a vegan deli was taking shape inside the former home of Chango Coffee, which closed last May. Now, comes word that the new place — Counterpart Deli — might open as soon as next Monday, according to its Instagram.

Counterpart appears to be connected to  restaurateur  Joshua Pourgol, whose businesses include WKNDR and Tacos Tu Madre in Los Feliz and the small Bardonna cafe chain, says Eater LA.

So, how what to expect from a vegan version of a deli?

Well, Counterpart has posted photos on Instagram showing  a vegan version of a Reuben sandwich with seitan pastrami, purple sauerkraut, Russian dressing and vegan Swiss cheese and alfalfa sprouts.

There will also be salads and, of course, avocado toast.
