Eat this Portuguese egg tart from The Foundry Bakery in Maryland Heights
There are a lot of pastries we love at The Foundry Bakery, like the cronut and red bean bun, but their pastéis de nata – Portuguese egg tarts – take the cake. These have a flaky, layered pastry shell formed into the shape of a cup with a thick, rich custard inside. The custard is a little eggy and mildly sweet with a hint of vanilla; the top is caramelized to give it a bronzed finish. Pair this little treat with a hot coffee for an ideal start to your day.
