The original pastel de Nata, created by monks at the Jeronimos Monastery in Parish of Santa De Belem in Lisbon. At the time egg whites were used for starching clothes, the left-over egg yolks were used to transform into cakes, pastries and desserts. Pastel De Nata is a Popular Portuguese dessert, crispy flaky layer of pastry with a creamy egg custard filling and a dusting of cinnamon.
The best Pastel De Nata is in Santa Nata Covent Garden London. This is most to try.
