When I first booked my recent trip to Lisbon, the first thing I was told to try was the Pasteis de Nata. Every single person, without fail mentioned these little custard tarts before describing the architecture, the wine AND the piri chicken.
Consider my curiosity piqued.
But what is it about these small, warm, sweet tarts that has everyone so enamoured (aside from them being small, warm and sweet)? I set off to Lisbon with a serious mission on my hands – to try enough pasteis de nata to find out.
