Egg tart pastry in Portugal

I went to Lisba for sightseeing.
There are many historical place to see: Castelo de São Jorge, Padrão dos Descobrimentos, Santa Maria Maior de Lisboa, and Cabo da Roca.
Although they are so beautiful and impressive for me, the most important finding was Pastel de Nata.
Pastel de Nata is a kind of an egg tart pastry, but it has unique pasty cup; it has light crunchy texture.
My guidebook said that there is a famous egg tart shop in Lisboa, so I popped in there when I went to Padrão dos Descobrimentos because they are close each other. I did not expect it is so delicious. But I realized that it was not the same egg tart pastry which I knew, after one taste. I've discovered a great sweet near the Padrão dos Descobrimentos (Monument to the Discoveries)!
