Local Butcher - Where to Buy Berkshire / Kurobuta Pork?

Does anyone know where a lay person can buy Berkshire, Kurobuta or other heritage or speciality pork in L.A?

Specifically, center-cut loin roasts or similar cuts.

Any ideas? Thanks.

  1. I have no idea, but I anxiously await an answer to this question.

    1. Mitsuwa has selected smaller cuts for boiling, broiling, grilling, etc. Talk to the manager and maybe you could score something larger...

      1. Nijya Market on Sawtelle should probably have it. If not, I would suggest any large grocery store in little Tokyo downtown.

        1. I've always bought this stuff via the Internet, but if I were looking for a local source, my first call would probably be to Harvey's Guss Prime Meats (949 S. Ogden, Los Angeles, (323) 937-4622).

          1. Try calling Victor's Meat & Deli, they are usually able to find what you're looking for:

            (310) 837-8401
            10002 National Blvd.,
            Los Angeles, CA 90034
