A year ago, Glasgow’s West End saw the opening of Pastéis Lisboa, a Portuguese pastel de nata bakery on Byres Road. Ever since, the bakery has seen tremendous success, even with people queuing outside for the Portuguese sweet treats. And what better way to celebrate a birthday than with some said sweet treats! Pastéis Lisboa is officially giving away free pastel de nata between 9am and 5pm this Friday (August 11).
Pastéis Lisboa is Scotland’s first specialist pastelaria, and visitors will get the chance to take home a free sample of their award-winning pastel de nata, on the hour, every hour, as the bakery celebrates its first birthday this Friday.
Business owners Emma Airley and Sebastian Bacewicz will be giving away a full platter of Portuguese custard tarts each hour from their store on Byres Road. Emma and Sebastian will also be running a number of competitions on the shop’s Instagram page throughout its birthday week, with a chance to win more pastel de nata tarts for those who participate.
Emma said: “We wanted to do something a bit different to thank our customers for all the support they’ve given us over the past year and for embracing our bakery so warmly. This is just the beginning of an exciting journey, as we hope to bring the taste of Portugal to more locations and create memorable experiences through our catering services and events. We look forward to many more years of serving up our authentic pastéis de nata to the people of Scotland and beyond.”
