Chitlins [ Chitterlings ]

I live outside of the Boston MA area and was wondering if anyone knows of a good soul food restaurant / grocery store or butcher shop that may sell Chitlins, preferably either pre-cleaned or pre-cooked. thanks.

    Thanks for the Lord Jeff's tip. My friend from South Carolina (lives in the North End now) claims he makes the best but doesn't know where to find them in Boston.

    Now I can put him to the test. SPICY chittins', baby!

      I drive by Ray's on my way home and have always been curious about it. Any thoughts on the food there?

        Ray's has very nice food but it would serve u better to call ahead since it can be somewhat of a long wait for food. Also they are open sporadiclaly...lol.

          Yeah, I have noticed they're open sporadically. I've driven by there at around 5:30 (certainly dinner hour) and they've been closed. So.....

        You can get pre-cleaned ones at Lord Jeff's in Newmarket Square or you can get prepared ones at Ray's Soul Kitchen on Dudley Street in Roxbury.

          I have seen them at Market Basket cleaned and frozen, but it doesn't seem to be a regular item.

            Someone recently mentioned Soul Food in Brockton. That's all I know.

              FYI...Bob's Southern Bistro only has the chitlins on the weekends.

                Bob the Chef (or Bob's Southern Bistro, or whatever it's called these days) has them.
