It’s already close to 3pm when we are done with the check-in, unpack the luggage and freshen up. We were famished and headed directly to Cabbages and Condoms restaurant for lunch. I’ve heard about this unique restaurant previously and since it’s within walking distance from our hotel, we decided to check it out.
So, what does cabbages has to do with condoms..??…? I have no idea at all but here’s a little introduction on the restaurant concept.
Taken from their site:
“Our restaurant was conceptualized in part to promote better understanding and acceptance of family planning and to generate income to support various development activities of the Population and Community Development Association (PDA),a non profit organization inThailand. And remember, our food is guaranteed not to cause pregnancy. ”
😀 yeahh… so dont worry, you wont get a baby after the meal but might get a tiny hole in your pocket.. pretty pricey I would say. I cant tell you the cost breakdown because I lost the receipt but the total bill came up to almost 1000 baht 😮
There’s al fresco and air-conditioning dining. We chose the latter as we needed to cool ourselves after a long walking under the sun…
Sprite to quench our thirst while browsing thru the menu.
We decided to try their claypot prawn with glass noodle, one of the must try dish in Thailand. It’s flavorful but the prawn is slightly overcooked. We enjoyed it though🙂
The mixed vegetables was awesome. I love the sauce/seasoning used which goes very well with white rice
and no meal is complete without tom yum in Thailand😀 We ordered the tom yum seafood in hotpot for two.
“spicy or no spicy”, the wait staff asked. We answered spicy but turned out it wasn’t spicy at all and lacked a hint of sourness. The ingredients used are fresh but the straw mushroom drowns them…. it’s just too much. I guess its cheap there :p
We didn’t order much as we wanted to leave some space for T&K seafood in Chinatown after some shopping spree in Chatuchak but guess what…. it started to rain once we reached Mo Chit BTS station (to Chatuchak market) ~!@#$%^&*+#@! It’s 11 station from Asok and costs 40 baht per trip. Haihhh!!! ended up in Paragon Siam😦
Back to the restaurant… we explored around after the meal just to snap this few mannequin dress in condom for your viewing….. hehehee!! nice right and very creative….
and before you leave, feel free to take some souvenir home😀
So, what size are you??? hmmmm…..😮
