Traditional Portuguese confectionery "Pastel de nata Assort" is on sale from mid-December at each supermarket "Seijo Ishii". 4 pieces, the price is 699 yen (excluding tax).
Pastel de nata is a palm-sized egg tart with custard cream stuffed in puff pastry. It was previously sold at the same store, but this time we have added new original flavors such as fruit and cocoa cream. Four types of original, passion fruit, cocoa cream, and mixed berries are packed together.
The plump, fluffy custard cream is rich but modest in sweetness. Combined with the moist puff pastry, even one piece is quite satisfying to eat.
Since it's winter, it's recommended to rebake for a few minutes with a toaster if it's not a hassle. The cream is smooth, and the puff pastry has a light texture and the aroma and flavor stand out. Personally, I like sweet and sour mixed berries. Also, if you sprinkle cinnamon on the original, it will be an accent and you will not get tired of it.
Pastel de nata has been loved by the people since the monks invented Custard 300 years ago. How about a souvenir for the holiday season along with the flavor type that is talked about as being novel in your home country?
