I live in Williamsburg and all the pork belly i have seen at butchers around me (a la Meat Hook) is 8.00 + a pound, which seems crazy for the cut. I'm looking to buy it to prepare in a Chinese style so figure why not find a butcher in Chinatown where it is surely cheaper!? That's where I need your help please.. do you know of any good butchers in Chinatown or where I could get pork belly there?
I know where i can get prepared pork belly but not any reputable meat vendors.. please help!
Many thanks :)
