You can get Pasteis de Nata for $3.27. It's as good as you'd expect.
Cold Friday morning, no one else inside this extremely small shop in the LES. A seemingly one of a kind place for the unique Portuguese tarts as well as other food/drinks. Quickly decided on a Cappuccino ($3) and one of the Natas ($3). Both drink and snack comes out within a few minutes served in paper disposables.  Coffee is definitely bitter; had to ad a bit of sugar to balance out the taste. Nata is as advertised - flaky on the outside with a creamy interior. A nice start to the day that doesn't leave you too full. Server was friendly and got my items out quickly. Best as a grab and go spot in the morning.
What's a girl gotta do when she's craving for authentic Portuguese style tarts in the concrete jungle? You have no choice but to head to Joey bats cafe for a fix of their creamy decadent perfection. I confess I do have a strange fixation with fluffy, flakey calorie infused desserts but the pasteis de nata (Portuguese custard tart) here are a force to be reckoned with. It's impossible to describe and must be experienced to be understood : it's sweet, savory, and satisfying in all the right ways and always worth the trek through lower Manhattan Chinatown. We ordered 2 packs of 6 natas and They were served like warm, fresh out of the oven cinnamon and powdered sugar infused bliss. Enuff said if you have a sweet tooth you have to give this a try!
