Pastel de Nata at Nata Lisboa – Porto

8 mai 2015 § 1 commentaire

Pastel de Nata is a portuguese treat made with egg yolks. The first time I had egg tart, it was in Hong Kong at Tai Cheong bakery. I did not have any crush back then because of the strong egg flavor. The original version I had in Porto was more « creamier » inside with a smooth crust. Compared to the Hong Kong version, the tarts were sweeter with a touch of caramel and vanilla. pastel de nata porto best portugal egg tart travel pastry nata lisboa

They can be enjoyed at any moment of the day, at breakfast with a coffee or for afternoon goûter as well. After trying Pastel de Nata at different places, my friends and I unanimously agreed that the best ones were at Nata Lisboa. There are currently two locations in Porto, you can’t miss them because you will see displayed : « The world needs Nata ». I can’t agree more!nata lisboa best pastel de portugal porto travel food egg tart

Address in Porto: Rua das Flores, 291 and Rua Santa Catarina, 499.

The most original and impressive street food can be found in South Korea: from rainbow cotton candy to more traditional specialties, it is food heaven at any time of the day. And like fashion, there are trends: currently it seems like Churros are very popular as I often see people forming a line in Itaewon and Apgujeong. I really appreciate how food is presented with creativity and how delicious it is.  strawberry mochi seoul street food myoungdong food travel south korea mochi rabbit seoul south korea travel dessert food myoung dong where  I recently discovered those strawberry mochi covered with red bean paste in Myoung-dong and also the best Tteokbokki -떡볶이 in Samcheong-dong area. Tteokbokki can be spicy and hot, if you are not used to eat this kind of food, be cautious. It reminds me of my childhood, and it is a dish which is enjoyed at any moment of the day.hanok street food seoul tteokbokki south korea spicy hot

If you want to try a traditional korean dessert, have a « Ho-ppang » -호빵, which is rice cake filled with honey or brown sugar. It is a sweet treat any Korean has tried at least once during their childhood. vegetarian seoul dessert street food travel south korea restaurant

I came across many vegetarians in Seoul. Finding vegan dishes in South Korea can be a challenge with the language barrier. All the food pictured in this article are suitable for them.
