      i second mccalls..they have kurobuta (berkshire) pork belly

    2. i buy pork belly at 99 ranch.

        1. most Asian supermarkets

          1. You can get huge slabs with the skin on at the Chinese supers for (I think) $1.69-1.99/lb. The Japanese supers will have much smaller pieces with the skin off but the price per pound jumps to around $8-9 if I remember correctly. The latter will often offer Berkshire where as I've never seen this offered at the former.
