Video: Michiko Campbell & Dr. Teneika Eve

July 14, 2022

Talented Bermudian chefs have combined forces to open Chiko & T’s Restaurant/Catering at the Devonshire Recreation Club, and Bernews sat down with Michiko Campbell and Dr. Teneika Eve to learn more about their popular new eatery.

They have been open for business since the beginning of May, and pride their food on being “fresh, tasty and local.”

Mr Campbell, who has worked in the food industry for 17 years at locations including the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club and Red Steakhouse and Bar, said they buy from local fishermen and use local produce as much as possible.

“We keep everything fresh every day, all day,” Mr Campbell told Bernews. “Our best-seller is the fish sandwich on homemade rolls.

“Our second-best seller is our loaded nachos. We do a jerk chicken nacho, plain chicken and vegetarian. It comes with guacamole, fresh salsa and a cheese sauce. We do a nice barbeque sauce as well. It’s off the chain!”

Mr Campbell said he has been surprised by the demand and interest in the restaurant, which has proven popular with locals and tourists alike.

“It’s the perfect location, it’s central, and it fills a void that’s been missing since ‘Fat Man’s Café’,” said Mr Campbell, creator of Chiko’s Smokey Rubs, a series of spice rubs.

“We do have a lot of following in the area, and now we’re starting to see people from everywhere, Somerset and St George’s,” he said. “Since we joined Google Maps, we’ve been getting more tourists.”

Dr. Eve, a chef lecturer at Bermuda College who actually taught Mr Campbell years ago, said she has been by the support from the community since the restaurant opened.

“Chiko’s always dreamt of having a restaurant, and I was like, ‘Why don’t we go into business and do a catering company?’ He still wanted a restaurant, so this is a happy merger of both,” said Dr. Eve.

“It’s humbling to do something on this scale. It’s taken off a lot bigger and faster than we thought,” she added. We’re all Bermudian staff. They’re young, either fresh out of college or still in college.”

Chiko & T’s is open from 11am to 8pm Tuesday to Saturday.

[- As a note, the video interview was filmed a few days ago, and we were delayed in posting, just mentioning this as they talk about the specials for the week, and we don't want anyone arriving thinking that means today! ]
