Celebrate Chinese New Year of the Horse with us at Saigon Sisters this January 31st 2014. The Wood Horse year is a time of fast victories, unexpected adventure, and surprising romance. It is an excellent year for travel, and the more far away and off the beaten path the better. Energy is high and production is rewarded. Decisive action, not procrastination, brings victory. But you have to act fast in a Horse year. If you are not 100% secure about a decision, then don’t do it. Events move so quickly in a Horse year that you don’t want to gallop off in the wrong direction.
Hospitals elevate foodservice with improved restaurants.

Welcome to our Grand Opening at Northwestern Memorial Hospital (2nd floor Galter Pavilion) on Monday, Sept. 9th. We will open at 7am starting with our new delicious breakfast menu with La Colombe and Vietnamese coffee (hot or iced). We will feature Op La Banh Mi and Banh Bao along with Congee to start your day. You will be delighted to find the same lunch menu as our other locations here with specialty drinks and snacks. Click here to view full menu.
Construction is completed at our third location at Northwestern Memorial Hospital! Unique to this location will be our breakfast offerings which will be breakfast baos and banh mi stuffed with our famous Op La dish that we created for dinner at the restaurant. Op La in Vietnamese means eggs on a plate. Our version will have Chinese sausage, pork, ham, pate and eggs not too different from this video we found in Hoi An.
Another popular choice for breakfast in Asia is congee made with jasmine rice porridge, savory meats, eggs, scallions, and ginger. There will be vegetarian options as well.
Besides Vietnamese coffee (hot or iced), we will offer drip coffee by La Colombe, a world-renowned roasting company that we know you’ll love. We can’t wait to serve you breakfast, lunch and dinner at Northwestern Memorial Hospital location.
