Okay, since the thread about dislikes in Philadelphia is temporarily (permanently?) out of commission due to buffoonery, I have no choice but to start this thread in order to get recommendations on various things.

So, the purpose of this thread is to ask your lovely fellow board members and Philadelphians exactly where to find a certain item, be it food, office, home, erotic, or whatever.

I will begin by asking the following:

Is there any place in Center City or nearby to buy Guarana? Preferably Antarctica or Brazilia brand.
Are there any bakeries that sell Pastel de nata?
Where is the best place in the Center City area to buy sushi-grade fish? Preferably, ahi tuna (yellowfish or big eye).
Really fresh fish, killed on the spot?

I know Picanha Brazilian Grill sells Guarana Antarctica. It is awesome! Koo Zee Doo in Noryhern Liberties had pastel de nata on the menu. Never had it there but what I did have was good. For fishmongers I recommend Otoliths Sustainable Seafood and Jon Yi's ( for sushi grade) in the Reading Terminal. I'm sure there are other places to get everything, those are just the ones I've been to.
