Nata Lisboa, Porto
A shop called “Nata Lisboa” must have the real thing, right? Well, perhaps it’s not the original recipe from Belém (that’s still a secret, after all), but Nata Lisboa is a franchise with a goal to provide delicious natas to dessert-lovers around the world and even throughout the country. In Porto, there are two downtown stores that you can choose from, one near Mercado Bolhão and the other near São Bento Station, meaning you can grab a pastel or two before taking photos of the amazing azulejo mosaics in the city’s best landmarks (a pretty good way to experience Portuguese culture). One nata costs €1.10 and six cost €6.
