Pastel de nata is a Portuguese egg tart pastry, common in Portugal. Those found at Pastéis de Belém have become legendary for their super secret recipe. Any day of the week, a line trails out the door waiting to savor one of tens of thousands made daily. Eat them warm with a cafe. #lisbon
What it is: A flaky, circular pastry filled with egg custard and sprinkled with cinnamon. Where to get it: The well-known Antiga Confeitaria de Belém, which opened its doors in 1834, cannot cook its beloved dessert fast enough, serving on average 10,000 pastels daily. Enjoy the treat in the high-ceilinged, 17th-century tiled dining room or on the go, while you wander the beautiful Belém neighborhood known for its Belém Tower (Rua de Belém, 84-92, Lisbon; 351-21-363-7423).
