    Man, I'm beginning to feel like a broken record: Hong Kong Market, Behrman Highway, Gretna (yes, that's the westbank).

      call Cochon Butcher, next to Cochon and see if they sell it.

        I bought an 8-lb belly from Cochon about 6 months ago and cured it into bacon. Delicious -- but pricey at around $8/lb. They did offer to cut it for me if I brought it back. Good to know that HKM has bellies as well.
