Bangkok Chronicles Two: Cabbages and Condoms

Wednesday, March 11, 2009
Along the 16th soi of Sukhumvit Road is Cabbages and Condoms, a restaurant that promotes better understanding of family planning and serves food “guaranteed not to cause pregnancy.” With a tagline like that, how can we not visit it?


Entering the place what greeted us were figures of a couple dressed in nothing but hundreds of vibrant colored condoms. With so many amusing things on display, we had to force ourselves to concentrate on the menu, from which we ordered tom yum goong (a spicy Thai classic soup of shrimps, lemongrass, galangal, mushroom, coriander and roasted chili paste), gaeng daeng (red curry) and som tum (spicy green papaya salad).


With advocacy on population and community development, great food and free condoms to go, how can we not enjoy the place?

Whew! That's one cool place. And the tagline is trivial enough to attract diners.

hi amelia. they are more entertaining if you're there in person. the condoms are for real! :)

hi kayni and wits. the place is really cool. and what's nicer about it is that a part of their income goes to finance their community development projects.
