I'm having a hard time finding really good ham in San Francisco. I just want regular, ordinary ham, nothing fancy like prosciutto, but something that's not Boar's Head. When I lived in San Mateo, I used to buy ham at Trag's that they made themselves, which was great and pretty cheap (although the rest of their cold cuts are awful). The supermarkets (even Whole Paycheck) all sell packaged crap, but even the fancy grocery stores I've been to (Canyon Market, Good Life) don't seem to sell anything that's not just bland and slimy. Even Lucca's doesn't have anything good. I want some real, chewy, hardy, tasty ham. Where to go? Especially looking for a source in the Mission, Bernal, Glen Park, Noe area.
