Can one buy Pata Negra ham in DC?
hi, we recently ate at a restaurant called Rio Mar in New Orleans. They had serrano ham, whixh was great, but they also had Pata Negra ham whixh was out of this world. It is from the acorn fed animal in Spain. does anyone know where to purchase Pata Negra in the DC area?
Canales at the Eastern Market sells jamón ibérico de bellota, the highest grade of jamón ibérico (i.e. pata negra), for ~$80 per pound. That's actually a pretty good price; jamón ibérico de bellota is pricey, pricey stuff.
The Jaleos also feature different grades of jamón ibérico on their menus.
