After seeing the reviews and hearing friends recommend this place, we made sure to stop by on our trip to Lisbon. I was wondering if it was just another hyped up place, but it was sooooo worth it!! It exceeded my expectations.
There was a long line out the door, but it was for takeout. If you want to sit down, just go inside and find a table (among other people looking for tables). We sat down and ordered two cappuccios (which weirdly were topped with whipped cream) and an order of pasteis (one order is 4 pieces).
I thought 4 may be too much because we had a giant lunch next door at Os Jeronimos (delicious!). But we ate them up quickly! The pasteis were so delicate and light custardy, melt-in your mouth heaven. The crust is thin, crispy, and layered. There is a crunch when you bite through and I like that the crust has a very subtle saltiness that compliments the delicate custard inside.
My boyfriend doesn't like eggs or eggy things too much, but he LOVED them. We ended up going back after dinner and then got some to take home too. AMAZING!!!
