    Giant .. but if you ask for 'reasonable good' then you have you visit the shops you want to exclude. Many locals can be seen there as well ..

    Yup, wife likes to shop at swiss butchery. We get a wider variety there. If not, its either Cold Storage or NTUC near my house.

    I like meats from Swisa Butchery. But for more regular stuff, Cold Storage / Marketplace is pretty good too.

    I think NTUC Fair Price is trying to compete with its Finest outlets. I have not been there though.

    Eat more canned luncheon meat or five-spice meat (goes well with instant noodles) than ang moh ham... easy to get.

    Depends on location for me
    Wife goes to Meidi-ya since it's closer to her workplace
    I grab groceries at Marine Terrace so it's usually NTUC Finest
    The deli section is operated by Culina though, which falls under your exclusion list
    Ermm then how?
    And reasonably good is ... subjective

    Edited the first message and included the other shops/stores as well. I asked because I bought some ham from Giant. After opening the pack, I wondered whether I should eat it. Any ham experts out there?

    Looks ok. As long as there is no smell and no slimy substance forming it's good to eat. Keep it well cooled. But do notice: what you got there is the cheapest form of ham: pieces of meat of rather unspecified anatomical origin is pressed into a form, then treated to give it the brownish rim.
    For higher quality ham that has not been industrially processed you better check with a butcher.
