where can I find "lean" lap cheung?

I used to find it regularly at Hmart in Burlington (I think it was Orchard Brands or something like that), but of late it hasn't been there. I asked one of the people in the meat department, and he said they hadn't discontinued it, and that it was still there sometimes. But I haven't seen it for probably a month now, and the employee couldn't tell me when it arrives. Has anyone here who shops Hmart regularly seen it, and at what times of the week/day? I shop there every saturday morning, but would head there at another time if I can reliably get it. Is there any other store that has it consistently? Thanks for any tips.

  1. Are you still looking? The Hong Kong Market in Malden has it - there's a big section of lap cheung to the right of the refrigerated cases in the back of the store. Several brands & varieties including the leaner stuff (the one I saw was Prime Foods brand).
