Dino, Try the Philipino market (can't remember the name right now) on the southwest corner of Roscoe and DeSoto. The store is a bit "third world" but the meat and fish move fast so they are safe to buy. Thursday (late in the afternoon) or Friday seems to be the best day for pork belly. While in that area, the liquor store has lots of good premium wine; the Mexican bakery has great bakery goods. Another good place is Ranch99 on Sepulveda south of Victory (east side of street). Don't waste your time at Galleria on Reseda and Devonshire. Lots of good Korean food but no slab pork belly to buy.

Hey Brian,
Ya, I go to the wine shop on that corner often, my niece and her hubby live 3blocks from there and they always talk about that Philipino market though I've yet to try it but will do soon. And I love the 99-Ranch Market, especially the the pre-cooked duck and when I need a raw rabbit to braise, they've got it frozen. You sound like a true "foody" who searches out whatever good stuff he can find locally. Thanks for the tips, I'll check 'em out. Dino
