Publin. Got off at a subway station and couldn't find a cheap bar, so had to duck in here. Didn't want to piss on the street and get arrested. Though somewhat upscale, an excellent pint was only $3.
Bartender came from a village of 5,000 two hours from Budapest. Loves Budapest. Her English was fairly good, so I asked her what she studied in college.
"Yes, what did you study at the university?"
"University? No university."
"Your English is good."
"No, no, very bad!"
