Cabbages and Condoms
Here at Pattaya Dining Guide we give proper insight about the great dining venues dotted around town. Being a universal tourist destination and home to a large expat community, Pattaya has grown considerably in the types of cuisines on offer.
British, American, French, German, Indian, Italian, Greek, Turkish, Lebanese, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Cambodian, Laos, Pizza, Fast Food Chains, and just about anything else you can imagine is available. Plus the fact, because of the fact that there are many Thai workers gathered from all parts of the kingdom, every type of Thai cuisine is also catered for.
In this blog we look at one of Pratumnak’s iconic restaurants, Cabbages & Condoms.
Birds & Bees Resort
Nestled in a tropical rainforest and featuring spectacular ocean views, the Cabbages & Condoms Restaurant and Birds & Bees Resort is nestled in popular Pratumnak.
It is situated in Hu-Kwang Bay, which is one of Pattaya’s most beautiful and reclusive beaches, and only five minutes from downtown Pattaya. The resort has 54 suites, set in tranquil and lush tropical gardens full of orchids and other flora. The beautiful grounds are sprinkled with ponds and streams and form a haven for birds and local wildlife, guests can also avail themselves of the tempting rainforest walks.
Cabbages and Condoms Restaurant
The Cabbages and Condoms restaurant is beautifully located right down on the beach with great views and offering different dining options. The outside wooden veranda and crows nest table area is very unique and your evening dinner is accompanied by the rolling of the surf and the noise of the crickets.
Cabbages & Condoms is part of the successful chain, but the restaurant has its own Pattaya feel to it. The unusual feature is that there are thousands of condoms used as decor throughout the building. And the three mannequins covered head to toe, including hats, standing at the entrance covered in latex is an eye opener.
The menu is extensive and features Thai and western dishes. The regional dishes of Thailand is well covered, with plenty of dishes that are not common on local menus.
Similar to the decor the menu is rather avant garde, expect deep-fried shrimp cakes, chicken with basil, deep fried crab balls and other delicacies. If you are a fan of spice you may be a little disappointed as the heat is turned down a tad for the tourists and the curries are not especially spicy. The fresh seafood is superb, and the ingredients including fresh vegetables, fruits, and traditional herbs are grown in the resort’s own “Rainbow” garden and farm.
For kids and less adventurous diners there are items such as burgers and chicken wings to select.
The laid back atmosphere, beautiful surroundings, attentive waiting staff, eclectic decor, amazing food, all combine to make Cabbages and Condoms an ideal place for a relaxed lunch or a romantic meal.
