Everywhere you go in Madrid you can't miss Jamon - probably the most popular ingredient in the Spanish pantry. There is Jamon in all the restaurants and cafes, and Jamon shops all over the place. At Plaza Mayor there is the Museo del Jamon - this is not a museum of ham as the name suggests, but rather a popular chain of restaurants with outlets all over the city. If you are a pork lover - prepare to enter your paradise.
Many of the other Jamon shops are just as enticing. I came across this shop in one of the shopping streets with the prized Jamon Iberico hanging all over the ceiling. If you are nice to the girl, she may even let you try a slice of the Jamon.
