Launceston’s Great Winter
Soup Battle…


Thanks to those who put their taste buds on the line and went on a culinary adventure around Launceston in search of the best soup. We would also like to give a big round of applause to those businesses brave enough to put their best soups forward in the hope of taking home the Soupalicious crown but there could only be one winner and the winner of Soupalicious 2019 is Saigon Kitchen with their Vietnamese Traditional Beef Pho!

So what’s next? Maybe Toastalicious, a battle of the humble toasted sandwich? How about Piealicious, comfort food wrapped in buttery and crispy pastry? Or it could even be Cakealicious, the ultimate competition for those with a sweet tooth? In 2020, we are going to let you decide what you’d like to taste, so have your say here.

Below are the soups that competed in Soupalicious for 2019:
