Portuguese Custard Tarts

Sticking with the food theme from yesterday, here is another desert image but this time it was from a Portuguese bakery and its one of their famous custard tarts. If you’ve never had a Portuguese custard tart I highly recommend that you give them a try, there is something very unique about the way they make the pastry.
