NATA Bakery Celebrates Portugal Day, Adding Daily Baked Pão-de-Ló to Menu
June 13, 2023
Local Macanese bakehouse NATA Bakery is introducing a classic dessert from Portugal, Pão-de-Ló, to celebrate Portugal Day on June 10.
Specializing in Portuguese baked goods, and the Pão-de-Ló is a special addition to the artisanal bakery’s arsenal. The dessert dates back to the 16th century, with each region having its own variation. NATA Bakery's version is derived from the Alfeizerão style, and the recipe was perfected over three months to cater to the local and Asian palate.
The Pão-de-Ló is known for its unique texture and custard-like filling that slowly seeps out, when cuting into the heart of the cake. The "Macau-only" Pão-de-Ló is available daily in limited quantities for dine-in and takeaway at CuppaCoffee in Macau and Taipa outlets. The cake is best paired with signature teas and Portuguese-style coffee.
Freshly baked every day in communal (7-inches) and small-scale (3.5-inches) sizes, the cakes are perfect for sharing with family and friends or as an afternoon pick-me-up to enjoy on your own. The NATA Bakery Pão-de-Ló is now available for pick-up daily at 3:30 PM in both outlets, but quantities are limited.
