If you love pastel de nata and are gutted that a trip to Portugal to sample them in their home country looks to be off the cards this year, then we’ve got some good news for you.
A new spot dedicated to the delicious little Portuguese treats has opened in the Arndale food market, and it looks so good.
Just Natas officially launched in the Arndale Market this week, joining established vendors like Viet Shack and Salt & Pepper.
Born out of a passion for the delicious, custard-filled snacks, Just Natas only serves up pastéis de nata and espresso – but what more could you want?
It’s open from 10am until 5pm – or until they sell-out, which has already happened this week – so you best be quick if you want to grab some.
It’s all baked fresh on-site daily, and you can even grab takeaway boxes stacked with as many natas as you like (all of them).
Just Natas is open every day from 10am at the Arndale Market, and you can follow them on Instagram here to stay up to date.
