A bite-sized morsel of flaky pastry crust and silky, lightly sweetened custard, the egg tart is a must-try item at Paderia Bakehouse, a new bakery in Santa Monica specializing in authentic Portuguese sweets.
Of course, the tarts aren’t the only offering earning rave reviews at Paderia Bakehouse. Early visitors also laud the bakery’s decadent, oh-so-rich cookies, in flavors spanning chocolate chip to blueberry coconut pecan. The cookies are large enough to serve two, they say, and are best served warm. The ensaymada (Filipino brioche) is notably rich and delicious, especially when paired with the available two-year aged white cheddar. Wash it all down with an iced horchata, perfect for cooling off on a hot day.
