Being back in ICO as a 4th year can be tiring. Between being in clinic (always!), preparing for clinic, sending out resumes, and figuring out how to get a license, it’s hard to get the energy to cook a good meal. Fortunately, it seems like every day or so a new restaurant opens up in Chicago (even ICO’s Cafeteria is getting a new look.) One new opening, in particular, is worth trying: The Dog Haus. Originally from the West coast (L.A.), it has decided to revitalize the classi
As you may or may not know, NBEO Part 3 takes place in Charlotte, NC. Therefore, not only are you paying $750 to take the exam, you also have to buy a plane ticket, book a hotel, and cover all the other expenses while you are there. Since my nerves and anxiety kick in before anything important, my partner in crime and I decided to fly out on Sunday. That way, we could have Monday to explore and relax.

Why do we fourth years love it?
One of the main food groups is hamburgers, right?

Burger Point has amazing grass-fed burgers, turkey burgers, and veggie burgers (however, I cannot tell you how those taste). They have build-your-own burgers and near-unlimited amounts of specialty burgers. Some of these have avocado, bacon, and cheese. Others have wasabi garlic
The first is one of my all time favorite spots. I have written about it before, but I tried something new. My usual dish at the Elephant and Castle is the stuffed Yorkshire pudding. It includes mashed potatoes, roast beef, and Yorkshire pudding, of course. They also have meatloaf, poutine, and burgers. This time, I tried the butter chicken poutine. If you like butter chicken and poutine (Canadians!), head over to Elephant and Castle and get this immediately. If you like the i
