Scripps Networks Interactive-owned Cooking Channel has set an April premiere date for its culinary travelogue, Cheap Eats.

Produced by Leftfield Entertainment-owned Sirens Media, the 6 x 30-minute series follows Bang for Your Burger Buck food blogger Ali Khan as he travels around the U.S. looking for the best deals for breakfast, lunch, a snack and dinner in a particular city – all on a budget of just US$35.

Each episode will shadow Khan as he travels to Albuquerque, Austin, Boulder, Charlestown, Chicago, and Miami – spending 12 hours in each location – and tries to prove that flavorful foods do not have to break the bank. The series will also give viewers an insight into the creation process and ingredients of each dish.

Cheap Eats bows on April 19 at 9 p.m. EST/PST on Cooking Channel.
