Sorry to all my friends and family for being MIA this past week; I’ve been too busy having a fantastic time in Lisbon.
Yesterday was a quick trip to Belem. What’s in Belem?
Pastel de Nata
It is a very delicious custard, tart thing.
I spent three hours in Belem and saw lots of beautiful sights, but could not get the pastry out of my mind!!
So my first stop:
Padrão dos Descobrimentos is the name of the above monument. Pretty awesome, yeah?
Now for the pastry: Pastéis de Belém.
OMG! So so so good!
I wasn’t sure where I could get these…but everyone I spoke to told me it was a must.
I had walked around for a few hours and hadn’t found them, and I had just about given up hope when I looked to my right and I saw it!
After a 10 minute wait I had my first Belem pastry.
