Ten Thousand Tarts a Day Where? Lisbon Of Course

15. Best place to eat: Custard tart
Antiga Confeitaria de Belem, Lisbon

Creamy, flaky custard tarts – served warm with cinnamon – are one of Portugal's great culinary gifts to the world. The original pasteis café in the Belém district of Lisbon, next to the monastery where the dessert was invented, is still the best: their secret recipe has been guarded since 1837. Sit down with a plateful, and a strong coffee, and you'll understand why more than 10,000 tarts are baked here every day.
