A food critic’s website has offered up some heavy praise for Bermuda’s Art Mel’s Spicy Dicy, naming the restaurant’s fried fish sandwiches the “best fried sandwich on Earth.”
According to a review posted on the website of MangoDiablo.com, “This summer, I discovered the best fried fish sandwich on earth. It’s a bold statement, and I’ll take the Pepsi challenge with any of the fish sandwiches that you bring to the table.
“You’ll only be able to find this crispy fish sandwich in Bermuda and you probably won’t find the restaurant when you’re on the island, but it’s worth venturing out to.
“Art Mel’s Spicy Dicy is a local Bermudian hotspot serving absolutely enormous, amazingly delicious fried fish sandwiches. It’s nestled in a local neighborhood and is very off the beaten path for the average tourist
“Although they have an expansive menu, let’s get into the details of their most popular, brilliant fish sandwich.
“It’s served on freshly baked, super soft, sliced raisin bread. The fish is absolutely fresh snapper, skinned and cut into small strips. It’s dredged in flour and a secret spice mix and flash fried in soy bean oil. It’s packed high, higher, highest with the crisp fried fish, and it’s finished with homemade tartar sauce and coleslaw.
“If you’re in Bermuda and feeling adventurous, I can promise you that you will never, ever regret eating at Art Mel’s Spicy Dicy.”
