I finally visited the "Chinatown" in Austin (it really should be called Little Saigon since it is mainly Vietnamese). It was great, got a whole bunch of tasty treats. And I saw some items in the fresh meats area that saw at a grocery before (they even had pig rectums!). They also had Sheepshead fish, which are the creepiest fish I have ever seen. Apparently, for anyone who's lived on the coast, these fish are well-known and not in the least abnormal, but to me and my husband they are the source of nightmares. Anyway, I got myself some tame items like pork belly and a fresh ham butt (both with skin). I plan on doing a roast tomorrow (4/8/08) for dinner.
