Last Thursday night we end our annual conference. We had packed up all our things in the trailer and were ready to leave the next morning. That night those of us left in Great Falls wanted a meal that came from somewhere other than our hotel where we had been eating all week. It was the beginning of the problem trying to find single place that we could all find things that each of us were looking for. Enter the Tummy Taxi, aka Cafe Courier. It solved all our problems. This service worked with multiple local restaurants to deliver their menu items for a fee. Those of us who were looking for something more exotic ordered a sampler platter from a Greek restaurant, and those with a less adventuresome palate were looking for a “regular fare” ordered their food from a different restaurant.
Less than an hour later our taxi had picked up food from two different restaurants The Greek food eaters were having an aroma orgy as we opened the boxes and inhaled the smells. Soon we were enjoying fare that is quite out of the box for those in Montana. I savored each bite and tasted a little of everything that we got. Overall it was quite nice, though the moussaka was one of kind, a bizarre Montana version that no one would ever recognize. It had elbow macaroni! I am not sure how they got something so wrong and the rest was so nicely done. Some of the best Greek I had had since moving to Big Sky Country.
I never thought about enjoying food so much, but the standard fare eaters had lots of fun watching my face as I ate this menu treat. My face said my mouth was having a taste orgy.
