EGG TART - Crust is crispy and flaky - Inside is warm, gooey, sweet with a strong caramel taste. STORE Small, bright and modern. The line goes out he door but moves fast. You can order egg tarts to stay or to go. There’s limited space if you eat it in the store. There’s also no where to sit. You have to stand at the counter. STAFF Really friendly. You know how some popular places rush you to order or snap at you when you ask too many questions? Not the case here. One of the servers offered a homeless guy who wandered into the store a glass of water and was really kind to him which i thought was so heartwarming. Living in New York, you hardly come across encounters like that!
Really excellent custard pies. Nicely caramelized and creamy. So delicious for an afternoon snack. The line can get out the door but they keep it moving so the wait isn't long. We heard it was the best so we tried it, kept going back, and never tried any others.
Awesome! Perfect. Always warm and fresh. Good taste and stays good even after 3 days. Warm welcome, friendly employees! Haven't been to Belem, but I can say it's the best I've had in Portugal. 60ct for a espresso, 1euro for a pasteis.
I know Belém has all the fame when it comes to traditional custard. But be aware, the best one resides here. Eat it hot, cold isn't the best way to ingest such delicacy, and order a coffee and add no sugar for the real feel of it. A must go if you're visiting the area. A must go if you have a sweet tooth. One of my favourite places to go when I am at Bairro Alto.
Simply the best Nata i've ever had the pleasure of eating. Hot from the oven, crisp on the outside, velvety smooth and creamy custard. Full of flavour, not too sweet, not too chewy, not too hot - just perfection. Would go back to Lisbon almost solely to eat these Nata. There can be a queue to get these, if you go in the morning or in the evening though I found there was little or no queue. They are also very efficient, so you don't have to wait long even if there is a queue. Best to have the correct change ready and waiting so you don't hold everyone up ;)
