Pilgrimage to South kensington
In these times of mass, same name coffee shop invasion, it was greatly comforting to know that the 'Daquise' still inhabits this corner of London (just near the tube exit) — Polish restaurant awash with possible philosophers, writers and wonderful old birds with clanky jewellery It features a soothing and snugly interior with the original paintwork (possibly refreshed since my last visit) and cheery blonde waitresses. I had the soup of the day rather than the usual beetroot ‚ startling and delicious . . . sour vegetable with cream and egg. Had a chat with one of the afore mentioned older ladies about life in Paris and South Ken and then caught the next train to Kew.
