Smoked ham?

September 25, 2006 The second night in Rome we ate at another restaurant that was close to our hotel. We walked to one restaurant and it was closed, so we quickly found another one because it was pouring! The restaurant we found was called "Speck," it felt sort of like an Italian equivalent of a Jungle Jim’s. It was packed with locals, so that was a good sign. My true confusion comes from the name. According to our Italian dictionary, Speck is "a type of smoked ham;" however, the restaurant was decorated heavily with a cow motif. I do not understand.
