Pasteis de Nata

A Taste of Heaven in Lisbon

Pasteis de Nata or Portuguese ‘custard tarts’, are small, papery pastries filled with deliciously sweet and gooey egg custard.

The taste best with a nice cup of coffee!

They are sold everywhere in Lisbon and are absolutely delicious! A little taste of heaven.

I've got the locations for the best tasting pasteis de nata in Lisbon on the blog.

The real debate is whether the original, the Pasteis de Belem, are better than the version you can get from any other baker in the city!

Whatever you decide, you will not want to miss eating many, many of these native Portuguese treats!

If you've ever had Chinese egg custards, you will be surprised to learn that it's origins are the pasteis de nata brought over to Macau and China be early explorers!

Learn how to make them at home during a Pastel de Nata Workshop in Lisbon!
