ISO Purefoods corned beef (Filipino)

montrealeater Aug 14, 2012 01:05 PM

Anyone know if/where I can find Purefoods brand corned beef in Montreal? I am pretty sure it's Filipino, and also that it somehow part of the Hormel brand. Would love to get my hands on this here, thanks to anyone who can help!

    If it's Filipino and you don't mind exploring, there's a Tiny Manila (as opposed to a Little Manila) on Victoria in between Cote Sainte Catherine and Van Horne. One of the shops there might have it.

      Thanks, Eaterbob. If Marche Hawai proves fruit(corned beef)less I am going to try this area - just Google street viewed it and saw a couple of little grocery stores that look promising. I had no idea this area existed so thanks!

        My pleasure. And if you happen to come across any Balut, please let me know. I'm on the hunt.

      Have you tried Marché Hawaii in VSL? They have a whole Filipino section.

        Hey, thanks Kpzoo. I just called them and they said they don't have it. I suspect, however, that I was not able to communicate properly - my French is crap and I don't speak any Asian languages, and I'm pretty sure we weren't on the same page. They said they had another brand called 'Eno' but I Googled it and can't find that brand related to any corned beef. I'll probably stop by sometime, I want to go over that place pretty thoroughly anyway, so thanks again. Any other tips appreciated!
