110507 Sydney's Best Portuguese Tart

Scones are out and Portuguese tarts are in… I wonder why?
After some research, this afternoon I visited the cafe with the reputation of the best P-Tart in Sydney.. at Sweet Belem Petersham. It was AMAZING!!!! The pastry was crisp, flaky and nicely burnt, the custard was still warm! Cinnamon on top lovely. I am no expert but enjoyed it tremendously. Would love to hear from some experts about what to look out for… need to get in training for July!
Got takeaway and then sketched in my car – view on my lap and view out the window.

The diet starts on Monday – truly it does!!!

    Wonderful spread, Liz! And they look like custard tarts, yum...

    it just looks like a real pastel de nata, missing them as well. Lisbon, skeching and pasteis de nata just sounds wonderful

    I've been trying to resist but this post sent me off googling the recipe! Gorgeous sketch too, Liz.
