Bastardo - Arroz Doce como o da minha avó

icon-location-pin Baixa Pombalina

Rice pudding (here dubbeb 'like my grandmother used to make') is among Portugal's most traditional desserts - although we realise there are similar dishes in other countries. Here it always comes in a beautiful plating and cinnamon on top.
