The Best Pasteis de Natas in Lisbon
To Pastéis or not to Pastéis. Well that is definitely NOT the question here because the answer is always, always to pastéis.
There is no denying that Lisbon is a city with a major sweet tooth (my kind of city) and just like Paris has Macarons, Pastéis de natas are synonymous with Lisbon. These bite sized custard tarts are what dreams are made of and can be enjoyed warm or cold, morning, day, or night. No kidding.
During our two weeks in Lisbon, we decided to test out as many Pastéis de natas as possible and we rounded up our top five for you right here!
With recipes dating back to the 16th century, the ingredients seem simple enough: a puff pastry filled with delicious custard made from cream, egg yolks, flour, and sugar. But not all Pastéis are made equally. Let’s dig in.
Well thats a wrap! Like I said before, you really can’t go wrong with any of the pastelarias in Lisbon.

Oh and don’t worry about calories here, the hills in Lisbon will more than make up for your Pastéis addiction…at least thats what I kept telling myself :)
