The goal of this waymark is to create Bifana's House Waymark (Portuguese traditional fast food house).

Some add mustard or spicy sauce. It's not a BBQ and it's not easy to find in every restaurant. There are houses that have them as their specialty, that's what this category is all about. Those houses are not BBQ houses.
