Does anyone know where to buy pork belly? I bought Momofuku and would like to try some recipes using it.

  1. First of all, check this board for past discussions on this topic. I was part of one of those discussions and got a lot of info out of it. From that discussion, I found Bestway and buy my boneless belly there. It's in the old part of Herndon, Va on Elden Street. You have to ask for it, but they have really nice pork there and cheap too. They also have a location in Silver Spring. Language may be an issue if you don't speak Spanish. Most of the staff and customers are Spanish speaking. At the Herndon location, there's a very nice young guy who speaks English well and will cut the belly to any size/weight you want.

    1. I'm sure this question has been raised recently, so please search the archives.

      But I know for sure H-mart carries this (there's one in Wheaton, one in Falls Church, and others around the area)

      1. Any of the Asian markets in the area will carry it.

        1. Truck Patch Farms, at a farmer's market near you.

          1. Butcher's Block in Old Town Alexandria.
