Bocadillo or bocata is a Spanish snack made on a baguette, cut lengthwise. It is a minimalist, low-cost staple in Spanish cuisine, stuffed with meat, ham, cheese, roasted peppers, tortilla de patata, or fish. They come without sauce, save for a quick rub of a cut tomato. If that sounds dry and boring, you have yet to experience the superior quality of Spanish ingredients. Less is definitely more in this case. Some classic options include chorizo, lomo embuchado (cured pork loin), jamon Serrano (cured ham), codfish, fried squid, and crab salad, and tuna salad.
