“Cheap Eats” visits 4 Louisville restaurants

The Cooking Channel’s “Cheap Eats” show, which visits less-expensive restaurants around the country to highlight their cuisine, will broadcast this Thursday, Jan. 26 at 10 p.m. the results of their recent visit to Louisville, where they sampled fare at the Butchertown Pie Co., Super Chefs, Zanzabar and Hammerheads.

The premise of “Cheap Eats” is that the host Ali Khan travels to various cities looking to find breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack for under $35. In his Louisville visit, we see Khan eating breakfast at Superchefs, 1702 Bardstown Rd., finding Zanzabar’s (2100 S. Preston St.) variation on the Hot Brown for lunch, snacking on an apple brandied pie from the Butchertown Pie Co., which sells their wares at Copper & Kings Brandy Distillery, 1121 E. Washington St., and eating a dinner of Southern fried chicken and sweet potato waffles at Hammerhead’s, 921 Swan St.

This is the latest in a string of food-related TV appearances for Louisville. Mussel & Burger Bar, Gary’s on Spring and the Come Back Inn were featured recently on Food Network’s “Ginormous Food” program. The Seafood Lady and Grind Burger Kitchen were also featured on Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” in recent months.
