Desserts around the World: Pastéis de Belém – Portugal

When in Lisbon, one does as any tourist does and one visits the Pastéis de Belém bakery for a lovely delicious little custard tart. Sure you can buy them anywhere else, but we’ve tried others and the one at the bakery in Belém – with the long line of tourists in front – is definitely the yummiest. (They sell like a million a day, so don’t expect to find much love and care inside these pastries.)

Pro tip: Notice that you’re supposed to line up in two lines, while all the tourists line up in one line. Queue up there and get some old tourist lady really angry at you for cutting in line. Point annoyingly at the signs that say that you should line up in two lines. Then have that lady push in behind you so that she can get in front again. Fun times!
