Pasteis de Belém

Following our late morning visit to Lisbon's botanical gardens we headed off early afternoon to Belém. Warm early spring sun along with February holidays had brought out the crowds. Hardly surprising as the monastery looked particularly attractive bathed in sunshine.

Naturally a visit to the famous Pasteis de Belém for coffee and some delicously light pasteis was oligatory.

So good are the pasteis that I couldn't get the camera out while this one was still whole!

Thank you for the picture, Jim.
Spent the afternoon in bed with high fever and no strength at all, but otherwise OK?!? Just got out of it and discovered the pastel (yes, I’m a pain, even with flu: one pastel, two pasteís). Enjoy!
