LIST: Fantastic hams, and where to find them in Metro Manila
So much ham, so little time!

'Tis the season of the fabulous hams, and as we slide nearer into Christmas, one has to ponder: where are the best places to buy Xmas hams?

Traditional Filipinos like their hams home cooked - but for most of us, it's going to be a
visit to our favorite ham shop.

Here's where you can get the best and delicious Christmas hams, not in their particular order:

1. Excelente Hams - I practically grew up with them, commuting from our old house in Caloocan City to Echague Street (now Carlos Palanca) in Quiapo, Manila. Theirs is the most popular in Metro Manila and you can always see them on television during the holidays. Price starts from P900 to P1,400 per kilo.

2. The Plaza Hams - This four-generation, family-run ham store never fail to reach the dining tables of most Filipinos. You can get their smoked and crispy hams at the SM Megamall and at Dasmarinas Village, Makati City. Prices start from P1,400 to P2,200 per kilo.

3. The Majestic Hams - So distinctly Chinese, these sugar-sweet glazed hams are available at Rustan's Makati, Shangrila Mandaluyong and PowerPlant Mall branches, Harrison Plaza Manila, Alabang Town Center, and Shopwise Supermarkets. Prices start from P1,000 per kilo and up.

4. Adelina's Hams - Established in 1955, these legendary Chinese-cured hams are available at 180 Kalentong Street, Mandaluyong City. You can get them during the holiday season at Fiesta Market, Market! Market!, Bonifacio Global City and at the Lifestyle Center, Greenhills Shopping Center. Prices start from P1,000 per kilo and up.

5. Purefoods and King Sue brands - For those tight on the budget, the Purefoods and King Sue brands are the most affordable (yet tasty) hams you can get this Christmas. They're unmistakably Chinese and contains real meat, not just extenders. Available on most leading supermarkets and groceries. Prices start from P600 to P800 per kilo.
