Ali Khan’s passion for food began as soon as he was tall enough to ditch his highchair and commence eating at fine-dining establishments, developing a palate at age 6 that could rival that of a 60-year-old. Being the child of South Asian immigrants, Ali learned early on that exotic food to some is comfort food to others, and he has been "eating fearlessly" since day one, embracing new cuisines and cultures along the way. It was inevitable that this passion for food would shape his professional career, having been named the senior editor of Los Angeles dining and nightlife guide, BlackBook, at age 26. With online media taking center stage, Ali has also lent his writing skills to lifestyle sites such as Urban Daddy and L.A. Taco, and became a regular contributor to You Gotta Eat This, a food blog. In 2015, he launched his personal blog, Bang For Your Burger Buck, where he share articles covering burgers nationwide.
Ali is also a performer, trained in the theatrical arts at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Southern California, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in theater studies. His passion for performance and food eventually led him to Food Network, where he made appearances on Grill It! with Bobby Flay and The Best Thing I Ever Made.
When he's not cruising the country for Cheap Eats, Ali resides with his wife and son in one of the hottest food cities in the world, Austin.
