This is the best custard tart I've ever eaten. The crust of the tart is very crispy and the custard filling is really smooth & fragrant. Two of us ordered 5 tarts & a cup of coffee with milk. Total bill 6 euros. It cost 1 euro per tart. No service tax was charged even though we had our tarts & coffee inside seated at a table. The metal 'salt & pepper shaker' contains in one container cinnamon, the other container was icing sugar. You can follow the locals to spinkle some cinnamon powder onto your tart before you eat it.
Tip: The que is for takeout/takeaway only & it can be very long. We learnt it was faster to eat our tarts inside. No need to que if you want to get a table/seat inside for your tarts. Just walk pass the long que & head inside. There are many rooms inside the pastry shop and we were surprised at how big the interior was. Plenty of tables inside. The que was really very long when we were there but we just walked in unguided & within 5 minutes, we were seated inside eating the most delicious custard tart in the world (the waiters/servers were too busy serving to lead you to your table. Every customer just walked in & found their own table/seats. The waiters are quick to take your order & bring you your food.
This shop is located in Belem, near Jeronimos Monastry. Facing the monastry, the shop is to the right end of Jeronimos Monastry, about 3 minutes walk (same side of the street as the monastry). Look out for the que outside the blue coloured shop & you will know you have reached. We took tram 15E from Cais do Sodre. The tram stop for 15E is outside Cais do Sodre metro station. It took about 15 minutes tram ride to reach Belem. Alight immediately after you pass by the Pasteis de Belem shop. It is the same tram stop for Jeronimos Monastry. Hope this helps
