Jamon in the Boqueria

jamonman | Jun 28, 2010 09:52 PM

Hi. I've done some research on the Boqueria in Barcelona and apparently there are dozens of vendors selling Jamon bellota. So the obvious question arises... should I seek out a particular vendor to get my Jamon on? I'm not trying to buy a whole jamon. I just want to assemble a "do it yourself" jamon sampler, trying jamon from different regions and different parts on the pig. I've read about Jamonisimo, but I'm looking for an easy/cheaper "go-to" place for Jamon. Somewhere that I can go daily to get my fix. I'll be in Barcelona for five days.

Is it better just to buy a plate or bocadillo from one of the tapas stalls? Any advice would be much appreciated!
