Yup you heard right the ‘Cabbages & Condoms Restaurant’ is part of the PDA (thats ‘Population & Community Development Association’ apparently NOT ‘Public Display of Affection’). Its mission is to “respond to current social and economic dilemmas with the innovation and ingenuity” with their help “based on the belief that local people are best suited to shape and sustain their own development”. The restaurant helps to promote family planning in rural and urban areas across Thailand, and so comes the name ‘Cabbages & Condoms’.

So enough of the background, what the restaurant like? Well, pretty cool, you walk into a big courtyard full of plants a fairy lights, there is outside seating here, but if you dont fancy braving the head theres plenty of inside (aircon’ed) seating inside. If you take a look around there are plenty of things made of condoms about the place, check out the guys outfit below…

The menu has a large variety of dishes, we tried the dumplings, Masaman curry and beef in oyster sauce it was all delicious, we also sampled a few of the cocktails which were also very good and came with some cool pinapple art, the menu is reasonably priced with most dishes costing around 180-300 baht for a large main. You can check out the full menu and a map of their location on their site: http://www.pda.or.th/restaurant/
