Memphis to be featured on Eddie Huang's Cooking Channel show 'Cheap Bites'

The promo spot came out today for a new Cooking Channel show called "Cheap Bites," starring chef and food writer Eddie Huang. The show premieres at 7 p.m. CST on Sunday, Jan. 1. Among locales Huang will visit on his quest is Memphis, according to a spiel that came from the network a few months ago:

NYC Chef and outspoken food writer Eddie Huang takes viewers on a road trip to find America's best food deals. From free pizza in NY, to donuts that only cost a quarter in Memphis, Tennessee, Eddie will show us where the best cheap bites are found.

Note that the promo clip doesn't use Cooking Channel's usual tagline construction, which in this case would be: "He's Eddie Huang, and he's always looking for new ways to stay cheap." Probably a good idea to try something new.

Some are pegging Huang as the new Anthony Bourdain, or Rachael Ray's "$40 a Day" with "more urban flair."
