Cabbages & Condoms Ӫ

This morning I wake up with a craving for condoms.

So I go to a condom restaurant and have my fill.

Only in Bangkok!

No, this is not just some pervert’s restaurant business. Cabbages & Condoms is actually conceptualized by the Population and Community Development Association (PDA) of Thailand to promote better understanding and acceptance of family planning and to generate income to support various development activities of the organization. PDA builds schools around the country, too. Check out the board on Condom Mom’s right.

IMG_8590 Look at what she’s holding. Durex. No wonder the smile.


Sadly, the food at Cabbages & Condoms is not as grand as its mission.

IMG_8548 Rice crackers – the best tasting item of the meal


IMG_8554Tom yam gung – I cannot pinpoint what, but this is lacking something. Actually, a lot of things. The shrimps are dry and rubbery, too.


IMG_8562 Deep fried soft shell crab cooked in thick curry paste – fail!


IMG_8564 Roasted young mountain chicken bathed in wild honey – the chicken is tasteless
without the sauces


IMG_8573 Pad thai gung sod – nice presentation is all


IMG_8558Fresh coconut – my favorite Bangkok drink

It’s fun to look around and it is for a good cause, but other than that, there is really nothing special about the food at C&C.

In fact, the vendors outside the restaurant serve better tasting food.
