Pastel de Nata trip

nataDuring my 6 day trip through Portugal I set myself  goal to have at least one Pastel de Nata per day.  That was after the first day when I had 5, my Portugeese friends pronounced me insane and my heart started to notice increase of sugar (or some other egg related substance) in my system. It’s a small custard cream tart that just melts in your mouth and since I tried the first one during my first visit in Lisbon, I stand by the belief it is the best sweet to go with a coffee (well, somewhere close to baklava anyways).

Here are my 15 Natas in 6 days as they were published on my Facebook during the trip:
