Where to find pork belly in Calgary?

Anyone know of a butcher shop in Calgary that sells pork belly? I'm looking to recreate some of the pork belly and scallop appetizers that you see at most restaurants these days.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Try T&T. They sell pork belly slabs.

    1. Along 17th Ave SE are a couple of Vietnamese butcher shops. They have it.

      1. Yes any Chinese or Vietnamese meat shop will have this as we asians love the pork fat Yum!!!!

        1. Spragg's at the CFM usually have pork belly.

          1. You can get fresh pork belly from Regina's in the Crossroads/Inglewood farmers market, but you should special order it - I believe they slaughter twice a week.

            1. Lucky Fresh Meat!

              It's in the Far East Shopping Centre in China Town. Also, if you need incense and such, anime toys, video games, flowers, or charming lady's fashions, you're all set!

              (Corner of 3 AV SW and Centre ST SW by the Harry Hays building.) "Pho Central!"

              Excellent fresh pork at great prices. They guy brings the split hog in on his shoulder here, it hasn't been "seasoned" like at the grocery store. (Brined)

              Beautiful belly, shoulder, you name it. Good beef flank, too.

              1. You can find organic Berkshire pork belly from Broek farms at Second to None meats. A bit pricier, but the fat content is definitely better and arguably tastier.
