The French have creme brûlée.
The Italians have sfogliatelle.
The Spanish have flan.
The Portuguese have pastel.
It is believed sometime before the 18th century Catholic monks in Lisbon invented the pastel, a savory, creamy custard nestled within a flaky, delicate crust.
The magic mixture of sweet and salty has made the pastry a national favorite ever since. I bring you our version with a little Italian touch.
Take a bite of our "Pastel de crema", chances are you won't stop at one; pure perfection, pure indulgence, pure satisfaction.
