Remember that market where I bought the delicious sausage sandwich? I also bought an awe-inspiringly good coconut tart that was so good I figured that it deserved its own post.
I bought it from Pastelarias Roma, a dessert vendor in the market. I like coconut desserts a lot, so I was probably in the tank for this one right from the get-go, but man this was good. It was kind of like a cross between a coconut macaroon and a coconut cream pie; it was very macaroon-like, particularly the crisp exterior, but it was also a little bit syrupy and creamy, with a mild custardy flavour. It was contained by a crust that was kind of like an ice cream cone, but thinner and crispier.
There are a few things that I’m going to be dreaming about when this trip is over — that, I’m pretty confident, is going to be one of them.
