Food Dude’s Favorite Soups from Myrtle Beach Restaurants
Soup is not exactly what the Food Dude considers a meal. When I'm hungry, a cup of soup is just enough to make me mad.
But on a chilly day as a warm-up for a "real meal," there's nothing like a hot and hearty bowl to nourish the soul, especially some of the soups you can find on Grand Strand menus.
Sunday's 17th annual Souper Supper will be held at The Market Common's Valor Park, the one place where you can fill up creative samples of soups from noon to 3 p.m. Local chefs put their best soups forward at this fund-raiser for the Myrtle Beach chapter of the American Culinary Federation.
For a $12 donation at the door ($10 online at www.myrtlebeachacf.com) you can sample more than 50 soups from some of the best chefs and restaurants on the Strand. If you can't make it ("No Soup For You!"), here are some past winners and local favorites you can try at local eateries:
Last year's Souper Supper overall winner has become a staple on the Drunken Jack's special board - Chef Casey Blake II's Shrimp and Crab Chowder.
This tasty concoction is like a seafood buffet in a bowl, with large pieces of shrimp and chunks of crabmeat in a tasty broth. This Murrells Inlet institution also offers plenty of fresh seafood on its full menu for those hungry for more.
Greg Norman's Australian Grille
The Shark's chef outdid himself at last year's Souper Supper showdown with his Chicken and Chorizo Soup, a South of the Border dish from a restaurant from the Land Down Under.
Featuring grilled chicken and Mexican sausage in a spicy broth, this unique recipe scored second place in the People's Choice category. Still served at the Barefoot Landing establishment, it's good enough to make you say "G'Day" and "Ole."
Inlet Affairs Banquet & Catering
This South Strand catering outfit won first place among the picky panel of judges for its liquid take on a Thanksgiving classic - Tur Duc Hen Soup.
Featuring turkey, duck and chicken in one dish, you could make a meal out of this unique blend of birds in a bowl. Chef Kerry Johnson's creativity makes him another favorite for this year's trophy.
Marina Inn at Grande Dunes
Sitting outside on the patio deck overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway during a spine-chilling but chilly sunset is the perfect time and place for a bowl of liquid sunshine.
The Marina Inn threw its toque in the Souper Supper ring last year with its own spin on Succotash, featuring lima beans, corn, bacon and some secret ingredients that earned it third place among the judges. Served with a large crouton, you won't be suffering after a cup of Succotash.
This Myrtle Beach institution didn't place on any judges' scorecards, but its world-famous Creamy She Crab Soup is a longtime fan favorite.
This signature Sea Captain's recipe features crab eggs, heavy cream, sherry and some closely guarded secrets, people pack this oceanfront eatery for the soup alone.
