Casa dos Frios is a superb market for buying everything from American imported foods to fine wines, to great cheeses, appetizers, condiments, spices, breads, etc. It's not cheap! But, honestly, it's the only place in Recife to buy really, really unusual food items! Worth it, as far as I'm concerned... and the quality is outstanding.
