Csarnok tér 5, 1093 Budapest, Hungary
Exploring the Pest side of Budapest, we were looking for somewhere sufficiently tourist oriented to have a menu or waiter with English, but sufficiently off the beaten track to not require bookings or be too much of a rip-off. Borbíróság fulfilled the criteria, being located just behind the Grand Market Hall (Nagycsarnok).
We shared a starter of scallops with black pudding, as I was keen to experience the Hungarian approach to the dish I had last eaten in a Lithuanian restaurant (Link). It compared well and was served more quickly too! Nick chose Duck breast steak, with soft polenta and salad garnish for main, while I had pork tenderloin with sweet potatoes and traditional slaw. They boast a 100 strong list of wines, and I certainly counted over 70 on the regular wine menu! Nick was in his element, choosing 2 contrasting glasses. We shared a dessert as well - delicate little cottage cheese dumplings on a creamy sauce with fruit, which was really delicious.
