This is a pastry and custard tart, very popular in most bakery. There's not much difference with the Chinese Egg Tart except that the pastry in this Portuguese Egg Tarts are more flanky. This Portuguese egg tarts were evolved from "pastel de nata", a traditional Portuguese custard pastry that consists of custard in a crème brûlée-like consistency caramelized in a puff pastry case. Awesome....and yummy !!!!!
