Birmingham’s food scene strikes again!
Tonight on the Cooking Channel, the program Cheap Eats, hosted by food connoisseur Ali Khan, will be featuring Magic City favorites Over Easy, Yo’ Mama’s Restaurant, Magic City Sweet Ice and MELT Birmingham.
According to Cheap Eats program notes, Cooking Channel’s Ali Khan has 12 hours and 35 bucks to find the best deals in Birmingham for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack.
Here is Khan’s preview of Cheap Eats Birmingham which was posted on his Facebook page.
We’ve got to admit, we are quite jealous of Khan’s 12 hour “food crawl,” here in Birmingham.
Check out this lineup of visits.
For breakfast, Khan starts at Over Easy where they say he’ll be eating hash brown baskets stuffed with Andouille sausage and eggs.
For lunch, he visits Yo’Mama’s on 2nd Avenue North in downtown Birmingham, where he will devour a bacon-wrapped meatloaf.
His snack? Try Homewood’s Magic City Sweet Ice’s red velvet cheesecake brownie.
And for dinner, Khan eats one of MELT Birmingham’s favorites, the mouthwatering “Ragin’ Cajun” blackened chicken with habanero Jack cheese.
Be ready to see scenes from the downtown Birmingham, the Avondale Neighborhood and Homewood.
Now the big question. Did he purchase all this food on a $35 budget? Bet he didn’t take into account the 10% sales tax and does he leave a tip at each place?
See how he does it, but more importantly, thank you Ali Khan for coming to Birmingham and showing off our talented entrepreneurs and creative food artisans.
