There's no need to spend triple digits buying Christmas ham in Singapore. These under S$90 hams are just as delicious.
If Christmas turkey is the queen of the table, then ham is the porcine princess of the jolly season. Ham is a common food found in anywhere from sandwiches to fried rice, and for the Yuletide season, you certainly don’t want to gnaw on the everyday variety. Instead, we recommend going a cut above and buying a speciality Christmas ham in Singapore.

Bone-in ham or boneless ham?
There are two varieties of ham: bone-in and boneless. Gourmands recommend the bone-in variety for richer taste and flavour. Whether this is because the bone imparts more flavour during cooking, or because boneless hams are patched up with minced meat and other cuts is a topic left to the experts. We’d gladly watch them argue about it; we’ll be enjoying our delicious meats over here.
Most delis, restaurants and hotels price their seasonal hams in the triple digits, but there are great budget options to be found in the supermarkets and at your local grocers. Dress up your Christmas feast with these five Christmas ham deals which go for under S$90 each.
