Willie Mae's Scotch House

Just an update that Willie Mae's is still open and doing some brisk business. Just had lunch there and the service was fast and friendly. The chicken was tasty though a big on the greasy side. The chicken fried pork chop was a little on the dry side. Compared to the chicken I had the night before at Jacquimo's, I would rate this number 2 since the batter on the Jacquimo's chicken is lighter and less greasy. Most likely, the oil temperature for the Willie Mae's chicken might not be hot enough. All in all, I recommend visiting this place if you are in town and love fried chicken. As for all the posts about Popeye's being the best, I do love me some Popeye's but the consistency of fast food chains leaves a lot to be desired.

Buying a Pork Shoulder in South Bay Area

Dommy, Norm Man, JAB, Bob Brooks, thank you all. You people are awesome. I'm actually flying into Long Beach so I think I'll try hitting up Food4Less first. I land Friday night at 10 so I can stop by Food4Less first since they are open 24x7. I might try Jon's Marketplace as well if I can make it before they close at 11 (I just called to verify that they have them). If I don't find what I want, I'll have all of Saturday to track one down.

Buying a Pork Shoulder in South Bay Area

That's fairly close. I looked on their website and found the weekly ad for that store but did not see the pork shoulder.

Thanks everyone for your help. It looks less likely that I will be lugging a pork shoulder around the airport now!

Buying a Pork Shoulder in South Bay Area

I think all of the meat markets I called were all carnecerias. three of them told me they did not speak English and another two hung up on me telling me I've got the wrong number when I asked for a pork shoulder. My Spanish doesn't get me past asking if they have pernil... If they answer, I would have no idea how to repsond.

Buying a Pork Shoulder in South Bay Area

Hi,

I'm visiting a friend in the south bay area (Redondo Beach) and would like to prepare a pork shoulder to christen his new Weber kettle. I've called about a dozen meat markets I found on Yahoo! Yellow Pages and have only found one place in Torrance that carries it and two other places that I can special order from. All three places quoted me over $2 a pound. I just find it a bit odd coming from NY, where I can get whole pork shoulders readily at any semi-ethnic supermarkets for under $1 a pound, that the whole pork shoulder is so illusive in this part of the left coast. Any leads would be appreciated as it would save me from freezing one and taking it on the plane with me.

Regards,
nizzerbean
