Lonely Planet review

This famous boza bar was established in 1875 and locals still flock here to drink the viscous tonic, which is made from water, sugar and fermented barley. The mucous-coloured beverage has a reputation for building up strength and virility – it won't be to everyone's taste, but the bar's pretty interior is worth a visit in its own right.

If the boza is too confrontational for you, the bar also serves şıra , a fermented grape juice.
