Pilgrimage to Belem

Having amassed a ton of annual leave, I decided a trip to europe was in order. After a trip to Greece that generated plenty of FFF-worthy moments (more to come later), I also headed to Portugal and Spain in an effort to extend my Mediterranean sojourns. Can you guess what was the first thing thing I ate in Lisbon???? Here´s a clue...

  1. Oh my goodness Serenity they look phenomenal- hopefully they tasted as good as they looked, but who cares you're in the right place to be enjoying them!

    By the way, did you eat all of the ones in the last pic? ;)

  2. Mmmmm, how did these compare to the ones you made Serenity?

    I'm so jealous, I really want to visit Europe too. I need to find friends who have families there so I can stay for free hehehe.

  5. Yummm! Definitely worth the hike to Belem.

    For those not lucky enought to travel, the most authentic Portuguese tarts I've found in Australia are at Sweet Belem in Petersham, Sydney.

  7. thanks folks for your comments! i´m having a gastronomic ball here in europe! for those interested in finding a relatively closer source of these babies, try Magic G´s suggestion of Sweet Belem in Sydney - very authentic (and dare i say it probably even better than the real deal - as tasty as the Belem ones were!)

  8. It seems we've been on similar sojourns, Serenity! I've got similar pics to post in coming weeks. Not so convinced that *anything* can surpass the genuine pasteis de Belém, however... :)
