Bacchus takes BBBS Soup-er Bowl title

| 16/03/2011

(CNS): The public vote is in and it’s official that once again downtown George Town restaurant Bacchus is where the best soup is at. The restaurant walked away with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Cayman Islands (BBBS) 2011 Soup-er Bowl title. In a repeat of its 2009 victory, the restaurant’s Satinasutro Asian Tomato Fusion soup outperformed all others, leaving a memorable impression on the hundreds of residents who poured into Camana Bay’s Arts and Recreation Centre to vote for their favourite soup. Thai Orchid’s Tom Yum Goong made its mark, as well as the Marriott’s gumbo, which were voted second and third place.

“This was our best event yet. We raised more than $14,000 in donations and we’re so grateful to all the thoughtful individuals and companies who’ve donated cash, kind and time to make this annual event a success,” said BBBS Fundraising Chair Hemant Balgobin. “We’re especially grateful to the hundreds of residents who chose to spend their Saturday with us and again help select Cayman’s best soup. At the end of it all it’s the children we serve that will benefit most from everyone’s generosity.”

Special creativity awards were also presented to participating restaurants by the BBBS board and staff. Thai Orchid’s staff were rewarded for their decorative efforts with the best display award, while Deckers’ Chilled Banana Soup laced with Bermuda Gosling Rum won them most unique soup.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Cayman Islands serves children throughout Grand Cayman by providing mentors to those in need of extra time and attention from a caring adult. BBBS is a non-profit organisation that depends solely on sponsorship and fundraising events to fund its programmes, so donations are always welcomed.
