Pa amb tomàquet: bread with tomato
In Catalonia, people prepare bread with tomato much differently than in America. Instead of sliced tomato with bread, the tomato is squashed and spread in the bread slice, dressed with extra virgin olive oil and small cuts of a Catalan specialty: cured pork.http://smokysweet.com/dining/tomato-bread/
Paella is a rice dish with seafood. There's also some paella that has noodles called "fideuà". Paella and fideuà can also be prepared with black squid ink, which is called "fideuà negra".
