The bocadillo or bocata, in Spain and Latin-American countries, is a sandwich made with Spanish bread cut lengthwise, not with sliced bread. Traditionally seen as a humble food, its low cost has allowed it to evolve over time into an iconic piece of cuisine. In Spain, bocadillos are often eaten in cafes and tapas bars,[1]

Some bocadillos are seasoned with sauces like mayonnaise, aioli, ketchup, mustard, or tomato sauce. They are usually served with cold beer or red wine, drinks, coffee and a portion of tapas. Bocadillos vary depending on areas of Spain, such as Serranito, Almussafes, Esgarraet.
