Beef Cheeks and Hog Jowls in/around Portland?

Pretty new to the area, and am looking for a full service butcher (or asian/hispanic grocer) that sells beef cheeks and hog jowls... anyone come across these diamonds in the rough?

    For Asian grocers, the first you should check out are Uwajimaya on the west side and Fubonn on the east side. Also, An Dong in the center SE has a nice selection of meats.

    For Mexican, in NE is a small place called Don Pancho. There isn't a good Mexican grocer otherwise anywhere near the core of Portland.
