10am-3pm Sat; ® Ml/2/3 Deak Ferencter) Owned by the former sommelier at Gundel, the ingeniously named 'Wine Shop' (sounds better than 'Bor Boltja') has an excellent selection of Hungarian wines. Ask the staff to recommend a label if - when - you feel lost.

Hungarian Palinka House (Magyar Palinka Haz; Map p84; § 338 4219; www.magyarpalinkahaza.hu; VIII Rakoczi lit 17; S 9am-7pm Mon-Sat; ®M2 Astoria) If you're into Hungarian palinka, the exquisite brandy flavoured with everything from apricot and sour cherry to (be still, our heart) raspberry, make a beeline for this place. It stocks hundreds of varieties.
