Looking for pork belly

ABERK Feb 18, 2011 05:53 AM

I need two pounds of pork belly for a recipe. Where can I find it in the D.C. area?

    You can probably find it at any of the Asian supermarkets in the DC area. I frequent Grand Mart in Gaithersburg often and they always have it.

      If you want really good, humanely raised Pork Belly - Try Ecofriendly farms at the Dupont Farmers Market on Sunday - It's the second stall in on the right from Mass Ave. It's more expensive, but since you only need 2 lbs....

      If I need large quantities, I'll go to H-mart - The Butchers at Eastern Market also carry it. But there is a remarkable difference with the first option above....

        Whole foods has pork belly. Super H Mart has pork belly.

          I bought a big hunk of pork belly at the P Street Whole Foods about 2 weeks ago.

            I buy it at the Latino market in Riverdale that used to be a Giant. I can't remember the name of the store, but it's at the shopping center where Kenilworth meets 410.

              Try calling Let's Meat on the Avenue in Del Ray. If he doesn't have it on hand, he'll be happy to order it for. Last time I ordered, it was there 24 hours laters.
