Fresh Pork Belly?

Need some help finding fresh Pork Belly.

Need it for Sunday so would have to pick it up Saturday. I've put in call to my local Bristol Farms today (10/25/06). They're trying but not sure if they can get it by then.

Any suggestions as to who carries it frensh on a regular basis?

  1. I saw fresh porkbelly at a Ranch 99 last weekend. They have several L.A. locations

    1. 99 Ranch Market always has it. I usually go to the Rowland Heights location or the San Gabriel location (on Del Mar & Valley, NOT the one on San Gabriel & Garvey).

      1. 99 ranch always has it; so do Japanese markets like Mitsuwa and Marukai.

        1. Try the grocery store in the bottom floor of the Koreatown Galleria, SE corner of Western and Olympic. They ALWAYS have it there, very fresh and reasonably priced. They sell it frozen, fresh, sliced and unsliced.

          It's a terrific market in general as well and you can lunch upstairs after. Enjoy.

          What are you cooking?

          1. Any Asian supermarket in or around Alhambra and Monterey Park has it all the time. No need to 'special order' it.
