Perhaps you've heard of a cafe in Seoul with an interior decorated with comic frames, called Cafe Yeonnam-dong 239-20 (that's also the address of the cafe!). Located in the famous Yeonnam-dong district, this cafe opened in July 2017 and immediately became famous all over the world. Another location, a little more romantic, is a chapel at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, which opens on January 18 this year.

The interior is not really monochrome; They have 2 main colors. All planes are white, while the edges of objects are decorated with soft, uneven black bands, like sketch lines. Of course, there are some things in the shop that are fake, such as curtains and flowers, which are flat pictures.
When ordering food and drinks, you will see their colors stand out. The cafe has a varied milk tea menu, with flavors like pineapple, blueberry, tomatoes, and mango – in addition to Korean style shaved desserts (patbingsu) with 7 different flavors, including strawberry. , bananas, azuki … Visitors to the shop are not only welcome to admire the extraordinary interior design but also enjoy the dishes with delicious new flavors.
We all know that Japanese people have a special interest in comics and cartoons that want to bring you to another reality. Therefore, this cafe is really one of the most notable destinations in Tokyo because it transforms the real 3D world we live into into a flat illusion world from a comic book.
