There are many reasons I want to visit Portugal and one of them is because this country is home to the Pastel De Nata. This is a Portuguese egg tart in a crisp flaky pastry dusted with cinnamon. They are deliciously addictive and once you have one, you’ll end up having five! Well that happens to me with these decadent delights! The other day I asked on Instagram where in Johannesburg sells the best pasties de nata and I received an overwhelming response!
Here are the top 3 places based on your suggestions and my recommendations.
Fournos Bakery is known as South Africa’s favourite bakery. They offer a wide range of breads, cakes, confectionaries, deli products and many other delicious treats. They also have freshly baked pasties de nata and they are so good!
I visit the Fournos Bakery in Bedford Centre as well as in Dunkeld. Visit www.fournos.co.za to see where the closest bakery is to you. You can also place an order online and have these delicious treats delivered to your door.
