Comme a Lisbonne in Paris - especially for Sarah!


Following the longest flight ever (don't ask!),it was time to settle into 
my delightful apartment in the marvellous Marais once more.
After unpacking,I stocked the pantry and set off to see what flowers are available this Spring in Paris (with more of that later).
So, what does a girl do next?
 


It was off down the street to Comme a Lisbonne which is a tiny shop that oozes warmth and emanates inviting aromas of decent coffee and their house specialty of Portugese tarts.
These delicate pastry shells are filled with an exquisite creamy custard and were first created in the 18th century by the nuns at a monastery in Lisbon,Portugal.

Don't you love the way the French allow dogs to come inside their shops and cafes - sure beats all those rules we have at home ...


    The next batch fresh from the oven.

The charming owner,Victor Silveira,told me he uses an old family recipe and sells over 1,200 a day on the weekends.
Best eaten warm, not hot, with a light dusting of cinnamon, these little tarts are like no others you have eaten and at two euros each, they are also a bargain.

    Une noisette et le pasteis de nata.

 Sarah, they tasted just as delicious as when we were here last September!
