In the statement the company highlighted, "The point is that there are many dishes from thousands of restaurants that deserve to be as famous as Whopper."

That said, Burger King announced that if users want to share any of the star dishes, they would make a publication using the #PideLocal label and share it "with the entire Kingdom of BK on Instagram."
