Takeout Drawing

Restaurants, Cafés Itaewon
4 out of 5 stars

Takeout Drawing is as much art space as it is café—in fact, food and drink sales fund the exhibitions, talks and artist residencies that each of Takeout Drawing’s four locations hosts. Every quarter they print a newspaper, which you are free to take home, that features articles, news and their menu. Speaking of which, in addition to the standard array of espresso drinks, Takeout Drawing’s creative beverages, invented with their resident artists, are unlike any we’ve had. We’re big fans of the white peony latte (decorated with a dried peony blossom), Paul’s Meringue Factory (topped with a spiky meringue that you dip in the espresso), and Storming Ant (with black sesame and foamy milk). For a pick-up-me, order the ㅋㅋpresso (that’s pronounced keukeu-presso)—it’s a complete surprise every time, up to the whims of the barista. According to the menu, “This is recommended when witty touches are needed.”
