Pastel de Nata, also known as Pastel de Belém or in english Custard tart, is a Portuguese egg tart pastry made out of egg yolks, which is served fresh from oven, with cinnamon and icing sugar. The most famous pastry in Lisbon produces 20000 units of Pastéis de Nata each day. However, due to the influence of Portugal in Macau it became so popular in China that there are some pastries there that can duplicate the production each day! This product was considered one of The 7 Wonders of the Portuguese Gastronomy in 2011.
