João Batalha, pastry chef and owner of the business, believes that all Portuguese cake lovers and tourists visiting Lisbon should have the opportunity to enjoy one of the most iconic cakes in the country, regardless of their food choices. With this in mind, he was inspired to develop a 100 percent plant-based recipe that managed to still maintain the essence of the famous cake..

The new Pastel de Nata has the iconic crispy crust and a creamy filling, but has been made without milk or eggs, Batalha's Vegan Cream Pastry manage to fulfil vegan requirements and are also suitable for those with lactose intolerance or egg allergies.

The Vegan Cream Pastry is available every day at Chiado store, at Largo Camões (Rua Horta Seca 1), where you can enjoy coffees, drinks and other vegan pastries, salads, home-made soups, natural juices and fruit smoothies.

Not only is the Pastel de Nata made without cruelty to animals it also contains only half the amount of sugar of a regular custard tart.
