The jury decided: the best pastel de nata in Lisbon is already known

It is one of the highlights of each edition of the Cooks’ Congress and the results were announced on Monday, September 26, in Oeiras. The Best Pastel de Nata from 2022 is produced and marketed by baker’s house, located in Pontinha. After three years among the 12 finalists of the Best Pastel de Nata contest, this pastry shop led by Bruno Francisco managed to win the much-desired title. And the secret? Bruno Francisco points to “the dedication and love” to the work he has been developing for a decade, and of course, to the dough and filling of the pastel de nata, which he himself developed.

In 2022, Pastelaria Aloma, in Lisbon, took the second place and Pastelaria Patyanne, in Castanheira do Ribatejo, the third position. In the race for the title The Best Pastel de Nata of 2022, a competition that only covers the Greater Lisbon region, were also Padaria da Né, in Damaia (winner in 2021); the Casa do Preto, in Sintra; the Choupanna Café, in Lisbon; the Pastelaria Estrela Dourada, in Lisbon; Pastelaria Fidalgo’s, in Moita; Pastelaria Fim de Século, in Lisbon; Pastelaria Pão de Mel, in Forte da Casa; Pastelaria Viriato, in Odivelas; and Santa Coina Confeitaria, in Coina.

Founded in 2009 by journalist Vicente Themudo de Castro and very early supported by gastronome Virgílio Gomes, the contest quickly became a recognized distinction for the most famous sweet in Portugal. Evaluating the race were Alexandra Prado Coelho, Suzana Parreira, Daniel Leitão, Teresa Castro, Catarina Amado, Andreia Moutinho and Isabel Zibaia Rafael. The president of the jury is the gastronome Virgílio Gomes, who has been present since the 1st edition of the competition. The members of the jury taste the pastries blindly, without knowing which establishment they are from, in order to be a completely impartial evaluation.

According to the regulation, the establishments participating in the contest must have their own manufacture and have a place of sale in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area, made up of 18 municipalities divided by the two banks of the Tagus River.
