    Ovo moles are a local speciality. There are special pastry shops that mostly sell these. They come in shapes of sealife and they are basically a thin wafer type pastry filled with sweet yellow stuffing made of egg. They are yummy and quite filling. You can buy them individually in some shops if you only want to taste one.

    Then there is this yellow stuff in aluminium containers (see photo no. 2). It’s also made of egg and very fluffy and light. You get a plastic spoon with it as it is not a pastry as such. Unfortunately, I don't know the name of it.

    Moliceiros - Aveiro - Portugal

    The top icon of Aveiro is the traditional boat used to pick algae from the lagoon, called Moliceiro.

    Now a fading activity, it keeps being the "official" image against the reality of a growing industrial area, but it is not much than a touristy relic nowadays.

    In candies the traditional receipts of the old convents of the region are followed: “raivas”, “fios de ovos” (egg wires), “castanhas de ovos” (egg chestnuts), “bolos de vinte e quarto horas” (cakes of twenty four hours) and... “Ovos moles” (soft eggs) dessert of the desserts synonymous of Aveiro.
