Anything But Hospital Cafeteria Food

Hospitals have a bad rep for good reason - but it's not just the crowded waiting rooms and corridors of coughing people but also the food that visitors and patients endure. But that's no longer the case at Northwestern Memorial Hospital - the latest addition to the Galter Pavilion on the second floor is Saigon Sisters, according to Chicagoist.
The third location of the modern Vietnamese restaurant opened last weekend with a menu full of nine banh mi sandwiches, including braised pork belly with pho flavors and hoisin glaze as well as coconut milk braised Wagyu beef with kaffir lime leaf. The new stall also serves pho, salad, spring rolls, rice bowls and banh bao.
Doctors can dine on the breakfast menu starting at 7 AM with egg, ham and Chinese sausage banh mi or rice porridge with a side of La Colombe coffee. These options join fast-casual dishes from Protein Bar and Greek Kitchen in the fight to redefine hospital fare.
