Curry. Let's be honest. Like it or loath it. It's a British institution.

There's much more to it than most are willing to try, with a lack of ambition, a fear, or a mixture of both, to stray away from the reliable comfort of a mild chicken korma.

Going for an Indian also has that reputation for being part of that quite laddish, post-pub Saturday night, order the hottest thing on the menu and regret it in the morning culture that the cuisine really doesn't deserve.

I've been to India on several occasions and had curries and other dishes that are just out of this world, and on a whole other level to usual fair that gets dished up in most restaurants in this country, but that is begging to change with the wave of Indian street food.

Since it opened back in April, Ty Pawb, Wrexham's Arts Hub, has slowly but surely, began to fill its fairly substantial space with an array of shops and stalls that give it an atmosphere that is unrivalled and unique to anywhere else in the town.

No Arts Hub worth its name would be complete without at least one place to sit down and enjoy some really well made food and the latest edition is Curry-on-the-Go, which unsurprisingly, does exactly what it says on the tin.

It's not a Saturday night, with the lads, post-lager moment, it's actually a Thursday lunchtime, on my own, post-covering Wrexham Magistrates Court, but it's all in a days work.

The menu is actually perfectly small, which is of great benefit to all, as some Indian restaurants provide menus to rival War and Peace in their number of pages.

I decided to go for the freshly made Onion Bhaji (£1) and the Chicken Jalfrezi (£5) to be washed down with the finest bottle of mineral water (£1) and as I sat on one of the communal bench tables that are actually a brilliant idea for a place like Ty Pawb, the sound of someone playing the piano fills the room and there's a gentle chatter that makes being a solo diner, that little bit more comfortable.

When the food arrives, the jalfrezi is in a small opened take-away box that is reminiscent of those cool noodle boxes American people always seem to eat out of on tv and film and the bhaji, which is huge, sits on a small tapas style plate, with both dishes garnished with salad and the most delicious, creamy and cooling raita.

The bhaji is so fresh, crispy and delicious and despite it being the size it is, doesn't last long at all and before I know it I'm tucking into the jalfrezi which has the right balance between spice and flavour with the portion being just about right for a lunchtime feed.

The sauce, unlike the one fits all type, you get in most Indian restaurants, is made using fresh herbs and the whole dish just screams home-made, which means Curry-on-the-Go has a unique appeal that I will definitely be trying again.

The owner brings over a new dish he hopes to add to the menu, which is a spicy lamb kebab on a homemade naan bread, which I must say, looked incredible, but that will have to wait for another day.
