Mr. Zub’s
812 W Market St.

Mr. Zub’s chef Micah Townsend loves movies. In fact, every dish in his restaurant is named after a film or film character. Now his newest creation, The Akron Film Burger, is available to the public. The sandwich is in honor of the 2011 Akron Film+Pixel Festival (formerly the Akron Film Festival), which will take place at the Akron Art Museum (1 South High St., Akron, OH) October 6-9, 2011.

“We try to use our vast knowledge of modern and independent films to create a memorable experience to go with our fresh food,” said Townsend. “This is a great sandwich and we want customers to associate it with our local film festival.”

The Akron Film Burger is a vegan spicy black bean burger, made to order with a wide variety of different toppings. It will join the Mr. Zub’s menu for a limited time among the ranks of The Kid (Film: Bad Santa; deep fried jalapeno cheese ravioli stacker), The Thurgood Jenkins (Film: Half Baked; tater tots, sour cream, chives, nacho cheese and bacon) and The Dirk Diggler (Film: Boogie Nights; a giant hot dog with onions, slaw, mustard and chili).

The Akron Film Burger is $6.99 and will only be available through October 10, 2011. The full list of Akron Film+Pixel Festival films, panels and parties will be available on September 3, 2011 at Festival passes are on sale now.

“Exploring Food My Way” blog

January 10, 2010

There’s one blog I’d like all of my readers to check out: Exploring Food My Way is written by the kinda dude who can enjoy a good local North East Ohio restaurant, sit-down or otherwise. I don’t know him and haven’t met him, but from reading his posts I know he’s an Akron-based man who goes out to eat at least three or four times a week and does an amazing job of discovering the best (and cheesiest) eateries in the area. I’ve followed his advice a few times and haven’t gone wrong so far. His recent post about the trailer-bound Taqueria La Loma let me know how serious he is about locally-based cuisine and interesting Akron hot spots. Check it out and let me know what your favorite Akron eateries are.
