Ironically enough the restaurant "Cabbages and Condoms"; dedicated to HIV and AIDS awareness is located in the Sukhumvit area which had more signs of the ‘bought’ women than the previously visited Khao San road area.Their catch phrase is "Our food is guaranteed not to make you pregnant". After dinner watch for the offering of a wrapped condom with your coffee rather than the traditional mint.Despite all the kitsch; this restaurant does have a very serious nature. Proceeds from the food and the adjacent gift shop are given to the Population and Community Development Association, a non profit organization.The restaurant itself is beautiful, lit with fairy lights and offering an indoor dining area as well as outdoor. The food was wonderful though more high scale (and higher prices) than other restaurants we chose. Well not expensive by US standards but expensive compared to the casual places around Khao San Road. The ambience, the tasty food, the good cause all make it worth shelling out a few extra dollars for an interesting experience.
