Pork Belly in MetroWest?

orchidea May 21, 2009 01:14 PM

Where can I find pork belly in MetroWest? From Allston to Framingham?
I'm looking for uncooked no bone.

Tried Whole Food Wellesley, Roche& Bros and John Dewar ( I can't believe they call themselves premier butcher in New England! - They have so little selection!!!)

Thanks a lot.

    I'm surprised Super88's was frozen, as I always see them fresh at the Chinese supermarkets. Saw them fresh at C-Mart for 2.89 a pound (behind the butcher's counter) or for 2.99 a pound pre-packaged in the fridge section with the other meats.

      I have bought it in the past at the Casa de Carnes in Framingham Center (just behind the Goodwill building). Brazilian-run meat market.

        FYI for next- Korean groceries are the place for pork belly, pork bulgogi (sirloin) as well as beef short ribs, bulgogi, etc. In allston there are two- the older, bigger, but dingier MIRIM on Harvard st, and the newer, cleaner and nicer John's Market on Linden Street- that's my favorite. Their produce, etc is not as extensive as 88, so sometimes i have to hit both, but I don't mind!

            Market Basket on rt 126 in Ashland has it. Casa de carnes in Framingham may have it too. Second any Asian market.

              try one of the Asian supermarkets.
              I get my pork bellies there. They have a few small rib bones that are very easy to cut out.

                Super 88 usually has it. Other Asian markets probably do too.

                  I've seen it periodically at Market Basket. I think it was either the one in Westford or the one in Nashua, NH.
