Source for pork belly in south Florida.
I have been buying frozen pork belly from an oriental market in Lantana. I am not always in love with the quality. Does anyone have a source for heritage pork belly from heritage breeds of hogs.?
The Japanese Market on North Bay Village has frozen "black" pork belly, which I believe refers to Berkshire pork. I stopped by on Saturday and they had sliced (but raw, uncured) pork belly, like bacon slices, but didn't have the big piece. The quality fo the pork is very good there, although it doesn't always have the skin on it, which makes it impossible to get really crispy.
The market also has a great sushi bar in front.
Doris Italian Market in Coral Springs carries it. There are many Doris Markets in Broward so I assume they all would have it.
Speaking of pork belly... albiet from restaurants...
DaDa in Delray now has it on their menu. Had last week, it was good - but even as the App it's billed as, a little on the meager side. Three small pieces, perhaps each 1 inch square, on top of some sort of cube of tasty toasted bread, $11. It's billed as "Candied Pork Belly, brown sugar and cayanne crusted, with spiced maple syrup glaze". Again, very good, but I could have used a bit more for a cheap cut of meat. I would try again, perhaps the portion was off, or my memory.
I've also just learned that Tryst has put Pork Belly back on their menu, it was a special for a while but just this week I heard it's on the menu. I may be checking that out this evening. (Speaking of pork, the Tryst Glazed Ribs are ridiculously good). I may do a pork-doubleheader tonight.
