The world paused for a while in 2020. Due to the pandemic, we did not know what would happen, not how long the doors of De Lindehof would remain closed. But pausing was not an option for me, so I decided to start a foodtruck. The Spicy Chef foodtruck with mom's home food. Delicious baras and rotis that I love so much myself and my mother taught me to make. No complicated dishes, but tasty streetfood with the warmth of home to keep your spirits up. For friendly prices so that everyone could enjoy. Fancy caviar or champagne? That the Spicy Chef foodtruck had too. It turned out to be a feast: I experimented with luxurious baras with caviar, Japanese wagyu and truffle, we made mama's tasty spicy noodles with chicken, we had desserts, drinks. Nothing was too crazy. We went off the country, people waiting patiently for hours. We’ve met so many people. It was fantastic. The foodtruck started as a snack, but became an overwhelming success.
The Spicy Chef foodtruck is in the garage for now, to regain strength after all the intensive months, but keep an eye on this page. When the engine sounds, mama's home food is coming again!
