Recordação de Sintra

Recordação de Sintra

The first official outlet of the brand Recordação de Sintra (literally ‘Sintra Souvenir’) opened at the Market, but this queijada manufacturing business was started as long ago as 1890. Even most locals don’t know the name, but if you mention “queijadas do Gregório” it’s a different matter. From the Sintra factory to Time Out Market, Vera and Vasco de Almeida Ribeiro, Gregório’s great-grandchildren, are bringing back the original brand. They’ve brought to the market the famous queijadas, in both regular and miniature sizes, and in pudding format (that is, without the pastry case), but also the travesseiros de Sintra (flaky pastries filled with egg cream) and five other sweet items: almond biscuits, areias (crumbly ‘sand’ bicuits), butter cookies, bolos do amor and broas de mel (honey cornbread).
