Where in Florida can I find a portuguese bakery and/or restaurant? I've searched everywhere online with no luck. I'm looking specifically for traditional PASTEIS DE NATA, in fact, they are my ultimate pregnancy craving. I'm willing to travel anywhere in Florida to find them! Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Hi, and congratulations on your almost baby!

It seems that this place in Pompano Beach may have them.

A J Seabra Supermarket Xi - Pompano Beach, FL | Yelp

I found it when I did this Google search:

When we visit Miami we always go to Old Lisbon, but we go there for the Bacalao. You could call and ask if they have it...if you are in that area.

Yep, old Lisbon and Seabra based on my google search.

Until you can make that road trip, you might try going to a chinese dim sum place and trying their egg custard tarts. They taste (and look) very similar. Some Asian grocers make them in house. Even wikipedia discusses their similarity. Pastel de nata - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Or order them online from New Jersey: Pastel de Nata Portugues - Portuguese Custard Pies

Pasteis de Nata (Belem) 12 - Portuguesefood.com

Good luck!

I've made the following

Portuguese Custard Tarts

and they were pretty good replacement for the ones I used to get near the heavily Portuguese Iron Bound section of Newark NJ.

Ask your question on the Florida board. I'm sure you'll get a better response.

Default Pasteis De Natas - Palm Coast, FL

Hi! I'm originally from New Jersey and these are my favorite. I live in Central Florida. The absolute best Natas I have found are in Palm Coast Florida at Delícias of Portugal Café & Bakery 25 Old Kings Rd N, Palm Coast, Florida 32137 386-283-5646. If you are going to be driving a distance I would call a day before and put your order in so they are ready when you get there. They do run out.

Me thinks the pregnant OP has delivered by now and maybe even had another kid or two.

Me also thinks that Joynes is the owner of this place.
