Well, we’ve all heard of quirky restaurants serving up bizarre dishes, but have you ever heard of a restaurant brimming with all shades of preservatives? Sounds a bit awkward, but hey, don’t get me wrong with the unconventional name and it’s absolutely great to try new places!
That said, let us take you inside the
Restaurant Cabbage & Condoms in the Thai capital Bangkok; the place will leave you speechless with its quite unique decor. It’s all about condoms here, even the statues inside are dressed in dresses made from condoms. The flowers in the show, Santa’s beard, even the hanging lamps are made of different colored condoms!
Given its quirky contraceptive theme, the restaurant has become a city attraction catching the attention of tourists and locals alike.
The idea behind
The main idea behind the decor is to make people understand the importance of family planning (need the hour!).
Cabbage & Condoms was created in the hope of promoting greater understanding and acceptance of family planning. The motto of this cafe is quite significant as it aims to promote safer sex.
Asked about the idea behind the name and creation of the restaurant, Mechai Viravaidya, president of Cabbages & Condoms, says cabbages are readily available at any store in Thailand, so condoms should be like cabbages accessible to everyone. .
One of the most unusual cafes in the world
It is undoubtedly one of the most original coffees in the whole world! The whole place is decorated with colorful condoms. There are posters, images and quotes that raise awareness on topics related to sex, birth control and the importance of family planning, among others. Interestingly, there is a condom-themed photo booth where people can pose and click with condoms.
In addition, the cafe offers free condoms to all customers after meals! Quite a level of awesomeness, right?
Also, the cafe has branches in other parts of Thailand and the world. There are branches in Pattaya, Krabi and Chiang Rai. There is also a Cabbages & Condoms restaurant in the UK.
