Where can I find pig CHEEK MEAT?

I need to know where I can find berkshire pork CHEEK MEAT...I frequent 99 Ranch Market, Hong Kong Market(s), H-Mart...all asian there a place (butcher shop) where I can get this specific, and special cut of meat????

OR, is there a different cut that I can substitute this with that will be as equally fatty????

(oh and I need it to make my own Japanese tonkatsu ramen. I had this dish called "Melty Pork" in Mitsua (New Jersey) a Japanese grocery and the pork literally melted in my mouth...)

    (...and what I can bring.)

    1. Revival Market sells locally-sourced whole pigs to restaurants such as Catalan, Feast, Beaver's, Kata Robata, so they'd be my first phone call -- I believe that their pigs are Mangalista, which are known for their very high fat content.
