Pork Belly in MetroWest?

  • 8

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.

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

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

      1. 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.

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

          1. Thanks all, I food some frozen at Super 88 as well as some great korean cut beef ribs, quails and rabbit (all frozen)

            1. 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!

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

                1. 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.
