Curry. In a hurry.

Do you like what I did with the headline there? It's funny...because it rhymes.

Anyway, let's get to it. You know the old Wellington Fruit Growers Market in town? No? It's the old building forming a corridor from Longmarket all the way to Darling Street. Well, it seems the team behind Jewel of India at The Waterfront have turned the space into a quasi-Indian foodmarket. As well as Indian food there is an Istanbul stand as well as a little China Town. So whether it's falafals or Szechwan noodles you're looking for, you're in luck.

The decor sounds pretty awesome too. Cobble-stone walkways, hanging buckets alongside chandeliers, wooden screens, carved doors and granite tables. You place your order at a central counter before collecting your food from your chosen stall. With prices for MAIN dishes ranging from R20 - R30, this place seems like the best value for money in Cape Town.

It is open from 11am to 9-30pm and can be found at The Wellington. If you can't find it just get close, get out your car and follow the smell of the spices. I am super-excited about this one and can't wait to check it out.

Curry @ Wellingtons is just silly- that all I can say-

The tastes are insane.

The prices are even more silly.
