Writing this review took some serious eating, as you can see. Stoughton Bakery specializes in Portuguese pastries and bread, as well as non-Portuguese fare. Here you can see Portuguese English muffins, corn bread, and Portuguese sweet bread; cheesecakes, cookies, and pecan tarts; and Pastel de Nata and other custard cups.
Pastel de Nata is similar to a Chinese dessert, Dan Tat or 蛋挞, though I infinitely prefer Pastel de Nata. In fact, Pastel de Nata has a following among Chinese people, who call it Poh Tat (phonetically it sounds like the shorthand for Portuguese tart). It was my first time trying these, and I really enjoyed the experience. But not the zillion pounds I must have gained on this assignment, even though I gave a bunch of food away.
