Llorando / Taste is Memory

We recently had a customer comment that Matt Prop's Indian food was so good it made her cry a little bit.

While I wouldn't want to see our whole dining room bawling, I can understand the emotion -- food that is so well-balanced and well-crafted that its deliciousness takes you away to a far off place, to a place that only the emotions typically associated with memory could reach.

We tend to associate memory with sight and sound, but in fact smells and tastes can be super-powerful, just ask Proust!
