“Food Guaranteed Not to Cause Pregnancy”

Looking for a unique experience in Bangkok? This restaurant is a tourist trap, a charity, and a hilarious dining experience with fairly decent food.

Cabbages and Condoms Restaurant in Bangkok supports PDA. PDA, as in the Population and Community Development Association, which offers family planning services in rural Thailand. Hence the restaurant name, and safe sex posters throughout the building.

But the themed decor doesn’t stop with posters. Condoms have been repurposed into statues and table decor, just to name a few.

But that’s not the Bangkok restaurant’s only selling point. Just a few hundred yards off Sukhumvit Rd, you walk down the long hallways and suddenly find yourself in a tropical garden. It’s best at night when the thousands of Christmas lights turn it into a fairyland.

If you prefer air conditioning, which at noon that day we did, there are multiple indoor dining rooms.

The menu is extensive, and by Bankok standards, expensive (think hotel pricing). But, as they advertise, their “food is guaranteed not to cause pregnancy.”

With that reassurance in mind, started off with the  steamed chicken dumplings, beautiful in their purple wrappings.

My friend had a seafood allergy, so to maximize the dishes we could share we played it safe. Kai Phad Med Mamuang Himmapan, commonly known as Cashew Chicken. Except this wasn’t soupy. It had plenty of crispy dried chili and the cashews were a nice texture. Way better than the US, mediocre for Thailand.

Same went for the Green Chicken Curry with roti.

Instead of mints, the bill comes with complimentary condoms.

And more on the way out if you want to make a political statement.

For the wise-guy friends who already have everything, Cabbages and Condoms also has plenty of branded merchandise for sale in their gift shop.
