Casa Nata Toorak Village Pop-Up
Thornbury's temple of Portuguese tarts has popped up in Melbourne's southeast.
The duo behind Thornbury's Casa Nata, Ruben Bertolo and Nelson Coutinho, have gone south and opened a pop-up shop filled with creamy pastéis de nata. Located along Toorak Road, the shop is open from Thursday-Sunday from 9am — until sold out. So, we suggest you head in as early as you can.
If you haven't yet been acquainted with Casa Nata's tarts, you'll want to, quick smart. Each tart takes three days to produce and the recipe is kept firmly under wraps.
Both children of Portuguese parents that migrated to Australia in the 80s, the pair is more than familiar with the custard-filled pastry, but felt it wasn't being properly represented here on Aussie shores. So, they decided to do something about it, got cracking on perfecting a recipe and opened the doors to Casa Nata in April this year.
The menu is a testament to the idea of quality over quantity, featuring nothing more than Atomica Coffee alongside just one version of the signature dessert.
Casa Nata Toorak Village Pop-Up is open from 9am–sold out Thursday–Sunday.
