Fernandez & Wells

Coincidentally, I happened to be at two different Fernandez & Wells branches within a week. I have always like their Soho branch, it's small, casual and I particularly like the fact that it's hidden away off the main street. Besides, apart from maybe Lisboa Patisserie on Goldborne Road, their Portuguese custard tarts (Pasteis de Nata) are probably the best I have tasted in London. The pastry is crispy, non-greasy and the custard is not too sweet.

After my friend and I visited the exhibitions at Somerset House, we decided to try their new branch, which is much bigger and has wider choices. I liked the simple decor, the airy space and laid-back atmosphere.

We shared a few tapas dishes, had some wine and followed by Portuguese custard tarts and chai ( nice to see it on the menu). We spent quite a few hours there, and since it wasn't busy, at times, we felt like we had the place to ourselves! The staff were very friendly and helpful and so overall, it was a very pleasant experience and I definitely will be back soon.
