The Experience

With our FoodTruck, we want to show you that street food is much more than just fast food. It's about bringing openminded people together, to discover and experience street food in a new way. We expect support around our snack bar including taking orders, serving and cashing up. You should also take care of the drinks stock and wash the dishes. A friendly attitude towards our guests is very important to us.

Lovely experience, Robert and Susanne are the best. They picked me up from the airport and surprised me every night with a great meal. The work was exactly as described, I really enjoyed working with Robert in the food truck. I would be happy to come back again sometime and see how little Lisa and Lotta are doing. No not their kids but their lovely goat and cat XD Thank you for the wonderful time together.

From the moment I arrived Susanne and Robert showed me nothing but respect, kindness and generosity, my time with them was truly special, and I thank them so much for the opportunity. Their home is amazing, the food is incredible, and I felt a part of their family, the work can be busy but it easy to pick and and satisfying. Thank you both!

Wir hatten eine gute Zeit zusammen. Vielen Dank und alles Gute für dich.



This experience was incredible! Robert and Suzanne always ask if everything is ok, they are really sweet. The key is to communicate openly with them. The work isn't hard, and don't hesitate to take initiatives. If you love food and cooking it is the place to be and they are more than happy to teach you a few things! Be aware it's an island, it's better to rent a car or scooter if you want more freedom, but they can help you with that. It's also so close to Nature you will love it!

My Experience with working in the host alongside Robert was amazing ! The food was outstanding and I met so many people during my work. Tasks were not difficult, the atmosphere was relaxed and I was very happy with my accommodation! Suzanne and Robert are lovely and really cared about me! I miss them already and I hope to see them in the future :) Azores are so beautiful and peaceful, I wish I stayed for longer then 2 weeks! I highly recommend !!
