Pata Negra Ham in Toronto (?Portuguese)

estufarian | Dec 5, 2008 08:11 AM

The famous version is the Jamon Iberico from Spain - which IMO is the best ham in the world. However prices in Toronto are about double those in the US (and quadruple those in Spain) and I don't plan on risking illegal importation. I need enough for about 10 servings.
Nevertheless, the same animal (Black Hoofed Pig) also exists in Portugal so it occurs to me that a 'similar' product may well be available at some of the Portuguese stores in Toronto.
Does anybody know of a retail source for Pata Negra ham - probably Portuguese but any other countries also welcome (excluding Spain as I'm probably aware of most of the local outlets for jamon Iberico of several qualities - and too-high prices).
