Tucked on the quieter end of Østerbrogade, Impronta is a delicatessen selling Portuguese and Argentinian gourmet items. With a few tables, freshly brewed Portuguese coffee and their to-die-for pastel de nata, the little shop double as a small eatery for a quick bite.
The fresh-from-the-oven pastel de nata we tried was crispy on the outside, with smooth and sweet egg custard filling. In fact, it was better than the ones we tried in Porto, probably because we were lucky enough to eat it when it literally just came out from the oven. While in Portugal, a cafe would bake everything once in the morning and sell all the tarts throughout the day.
We also had a piece of vegetarian Caprice empanada, a hearty pocket pastry filled with a mouthful of comfort. Satisifying melted cheese with fresh and delightful tomato richly ’embreaded’ in a thin dough. We will definitely return to try to more classic Beef versions, an Argentinian festival favorite.
Before we left, we also took some Havanna Alfajores (chocolate and meringue) with us.
Whilst we have trouble finding a Portuguese restaurant in Copenhagen, we are glad to have found the taste of Portugal in Østerbro.
