Bristol is well served for those most delicious of treats Pastel De Nata, more commonly known in these parts as Portuguese Custard Tarts. The excellent Portuguese Taste stall in St. Nicholas Market has been adding to our waist line for many years with their wonderful pastries. Old friend of ours Harts Bakery, is also justly renowned for their take on this traditional classic.
Well we were delighted to find that Bica Bistro Café on Cheltenham Road also makes their own Pastel De Nata. Apparently they bake them fresh around three times a day, so of course we had to take a sample tasting! We are happy to report that they are absolutly wonderful. If you find yourself near The Arches on Gloucester Road you would be foolish to miss out this piece of pastry encased Portugesse sunshine.
