Anyplace to buy pork belly in the Boston area? (Nm)

Am in the mood to try to replicate some yummy pork tacos I had recently

  1. I'm north of Boston, but I've found pork belly at Market Basket -- give your local MB a call to see if they stock it.

        Maybe OP meant (never mind) meaning he moved on??

          Usually "no message" -- as in, "just read and reply to the title, it says all I need to say."

            Super 88 in Brighton (H-Mart I guess)

          2. market basket and any asian store, chinatown and beyond.

            1. If you want to splurge on the organic, from ethically raised animals, and locally sourced product that is a bit pricier, please-please-PLEASE go to M F Dulock on Highland Avenue in Somerville. I've purchased it twice in the past month - around $5 for a 3"X3" slab, and it was DELICIOUS! My husband and I were standing around the roasting pan picking at it uncontrollably - it barely made it to the presentation part of the program. Oh, god it was good. Cooked at around 500 for a half hour and back to 200 for another hour and a half. Basted with a bourbon, dijon, maple glaze at the end. I'm thinking I need to go right now to get another. See ya.... ;)

                second dulocks. delicious stuff, worth the price for a splurge.

                  Their pork belly (and pork in general) is unequaled, and it will ruin most other pork for you.

                  To me a splurge implies some degree of extravagance. Eating meat which isn't commercially raised and processed is important to me. I'd rather eat out less and buy more product at a place like Dulock.

                    Well that is somewhat about semantics, isn't it? I used the term more to imply whimsy. Will be more careful next time.

                  Third Dulock's and they usually have Pork Belly in the fridge in it's not in the case.

                3. The Fresh Pond Whole Foods usually, but not always, has it - you might want to call first.
