On this list, we give you a rundown of places where you can get Christmas Ham in Metro Manila. Is it even a Christmas feast without Ham in the center of the spread? Compared to hams in other countries, Filipino ham is soft, a little bit of salty, smoky, and thanks to its pineapple-sugar glaze, it’s sweet. Even the pickiest eater will surely love a slice or two! Below, we list down places where you can order this holiday must-have.

This is a ham you’d want to see in your spread. It has this perfectly golden and glossy finish that makes you want to slice it open. According to Chef Nathaniel Uy, he only uses Pork Steak instead of the usual Pork Leg because of the marbling and fat cap that goes well with the meat.    

Honey Cured Ham is priced at P980 per kg, and needs 5 days lead time for orders.
