Jamon Iberico at Di Bruno Brothers

930 S. 9th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19145
P. 215.922.2876

I was recently treated by friends to a taste of the Jamon Iberico, and I must say, it has almost ruined prosciutto for me. The tender, rich ham literally melts away when it touches your tongue. The nutty flavor that develops as a result of feeding the pigs only acorns for the last three months of their lives is truly astounding. The rich ribbons of fat are so meltingly tender, I would eat this and only this as my lunch meat for the rest of my life (if it weren't for the equally astounding price tag of $130 a pound!). Price aside, it is worth it to grab a couple of slices of this ham, and treat yourself. You will be more than impressed!

No need for the cantaloupe, this pig should stand alone.
