Jim Gillespie’s winning #SweetSpot discovery from Lisbon, Portugal.

This bite-sized treat and historic tidbit originated in local monasteries as a secret recipe passed down through the ages. Jim describes the pastel de nata from Pastéis de Belém as “the most famous and the best in Portugal.” Save room to sate your sweet tooth, but be sure to pack your patience. “The pastry shop/cafe is always busy and the line to get seated or order to-go is always long… I tried the pastel de nata from other shops in Lisbon, but, Pastéis de Belém is truly unique and the best.” Sounds like this treat is worth the wait! Thank you, Jim, for sharing this delightful #SweetSpot and travel tip. Check out Jim’s other discoveries and follow him on Trover to get the dish on his next travel find. Congrats, Jim!
