Seis caras del sándwich

The word sándwich is international. However, in Spain it refers only to one type of food. In Spain there are 6 words to talk about sandwiches depending on the type of bread (baguette or tin loaf or round loaf), size (large or small) and composition: you can use 2 slices of bread (above and below) or only one.

In our perspective, sándwich is made of two slices of pan de molde.

If the sandwich is made of two halves of pan de barra, it’s called bocadillo, or, colloquially, bocata:

Para merendar haremos unos bocatas de jamón y queso – To snack we will make some ham and cheese sandwiches

bocadillo

If it’s made of one slice of toast, it’s called tosta. Usually, it’s made with something salty, like jamón and tomatoes, and is served in bars.

tosta

A slice of toasted tin loaf is called tostada, and is usually had for breakfast with butter and jam.

tostada con mermelada

Small sandwiches from baguette are called montados or, more often, montaditos:

En el escaparate del bar hay unos montaditos que tienen una pinta riquísima – In the window of the bar there are some small sandwiches that look delicious

They are made of two halves of a small loaf of bread.

montadito

The very small sandwiches that are made of a slice of bread are called canapés. El canapé can have a different kind of base: puff pastry, cookie dough, cucumber... The main thing is the size: one can put an entire canapé in the mouth!

En la reunión van a poner unos canapés – In the meeting they’re going to serve some canapés

canapés

Remember that in Spanish bars along with the drink you will be served tapas, free snacks. Often they will be montaditos or canapés.
