Jamón iberico, or Iberian ham, is the national meat. Not sure that Spain officially has a national meat, but if they did, this would be it. Every bar, café, and restaurant in the country serves it, and every tenth shop is a ham shop. There are so many different grades, starting with what the pig ate (the best hams are said to come from pigs whose diet is exclusively acorns, and the best acorns come from a region in southwest Spain called Huelva) and ending with what part of the leg you’re cutting from (the top side of the “wrist” is best) and what you’re cutting with (hand-carved is considered better quality than machine-cut).
Love the logo of this ham store we saw in Barcelona, Ham on Wheels. They deliver!
