Art Mel's doesn't look like much. Like a pretty standard neon-lit British chippy by all accounts. But the food that comes outta here? Oh man. It's a work of goddamn art. There's nowhere to sit and eat your food. It's on a backstreet in a residential hood, and not one you wanna hang about in for long. Give 'em a call and pre-order your grub, then get your taxi driver to wait while you jump out and collect. This sandwich is best enjoyed down by the harbour, with plenty of napkins at the ready, and a can of Dark n Stormy to wash it all down. It doesn't get more Bermudian that that.
The Fish Sandwich is about as close as it comes to a national dish in Bermuda. At Art Mel's they mostly use fresh snapper, fry it with flour in soy bean oil along with their secret mix, and serve it with tartar sauce and coleslaw, between two thick doorstop slices of raisin bread. How do you know this is an Art Mel's sandwich? It's roughly the size of a small cat. One sandwich is enough to feed two, and still cause you a decent amount of indigestion. But trust us, you'll never have a better sandwich in your life.
