    Cabbages & Condoms - Birds & Bees

    Now Cabbages and Condoms is classy, infact I should imagine most Pattaya whore mongers wouldn't even be allowed to stand outside the resort let alone be allowed inside wearing their singha beer wifebeater vests and flip flops, luckily I just got my car resprayed, real dark tinted windows, so we got in alright.

    This place is also called the Birds and the Bees for some reason, or maybe the restaurant goes under cabbages and condoms and the resort under the name of Birds and the Bees, not that it makes a blind bit of difference, it is off of Soi Pratamnak down the bottom of Soi 4 basically right on the beach and just opposite the Asia Pattaya Hotel, (which is a cheapy and welcomes whore mongers and unwashed backpackers with open arms).

    To get to the restaurant you have to walk through the grounds, gardens, streams, fish, rabbits, chickens, should mention both chicken and eggs are on the menu, and for our northern friends and others not from the big cities I shall check next time to see if rabbit is on the menu, although a few baht and I am sure it could be arranged.

    The decor was really nice from afar, tonnes of wood, the tables, well some were like this.



    Yes, CONDOMS, it's alright though, as you can see in this photo they are either unused or have been well cleaned, plus there is a slab of glass on top of those condoms, notice how small they are?



    As I posted, the restaurant is really nicely done out using enough wood to help deplete a medium sized rain forest, even wooden decking.



    The menu has Thai food from yellow curry to spicy salads, also has a selection of international dishes including fish and chips for us superior people, prices around 150baht per dish and it was all pretty good but I forgot to take photos



    In the evening they open the terrace in this photo, yes it is on the beach and high tide the water is at your feet, now that is classy.



    Of course, if you are after some good old fashioned British food, then just outside the resort is The Elephant Restaurant serving meals such as the mixed grill, fish and chips, and of course various pies with chips etc.

    More on the Elephant Restaurant (British Restaurants in Pattaya)

    For a bit of golf, across the road is the Asia Hotels pitch and putt course, 9 holes I believe.

    Cabbages and Condoms Resort

    Cabbages and Condoms Resort is nice, it has a small farm where they grow their own vegetables, get their own eggs, plus loads of other stuff, the rooms are expensive, think they start just under 3,000baht +++ per night, but they are nice, some have their own gardens some are shared gardens, seems all have two showers, one is glassed walled on the garden side so people outside can see you, at least I think that is the idea, personally I wouldn't use that one but each to their own, but please, if your some obese fat git, don't use that one, think of your neighbours.

    The bed don't look too bad.



    Looking out to the patio and garden.



    Part of the bathroom, all natural stone, marble, granite etc, ie no cheapy nasty stuff in here.




    One of the showers from outside.



    And of course the swimming pool, although the sea is only 10 meters away.

    Set up and owned by Khun Mechai, an honest Thai politician and actually a pretty interesting and pleasant fellow to chat with.

    The name of his restaurants are based on helping the poor, rural Thai get out of the cycle of povery, cabbages for farming and self sufficiency and condoms for family planning.

    I hope it's better than the tasteless, soggy mess they serve in the Bangkok restaurant. I thought my mother was the head chef there.

    The words Hijack and Thread come to mind here.
    I was in BKK in 1979 when Mechai, suckass' prefix with Khun, launched his war on
    contraception and STD's.

    I can readily accept that the gentleman in question is astute. Speaking personally, I have never seem my wife or any member of her family, munching on a condom. He may have set his sights too low if he wishes to bring about socio-economic change for the great unwashed.

    Very nice resort, excellent restaurant, standard rooms are OK but a bit worn and not up to the standard you'd expect when paying 2,000+ THB per night. However, all the rest of the facilities are great and well worth the money.

    There's also a great kids' pool with slides and so-on, and a huge orchard that (along with the mini-farm) is worth spending an afternoon wandering around. Also there's a kids' activity area in the orchard.

    A great place to take the family for a weekend. It often gets fully booked at weekends though (esp. long weekends) so it's best to plan ahead.

    Axe to grind ?

    Nevermind that you're completely wrong, given that the is the owner, and that's the entire point of the restaurants.

    There's a Cabbages and Condoms in Korat - I drive past it everyday. Never felt the urge to dine amidst the ambiance of swine fodder and rubber johnnies though. May give it a whirl at some stage, mind..when I'm totally bastard drunk.

    I have always had a lot of time for C and C (bangkok). Supposedly (and I tend to believe) the profits from the restaurant go directly to the Population and Community Development Association (founded by Mechai also I believe). I have taken many, many overseas visitors there, and each and every one has enjoyed themselves. It is a lot bigger and more "snazzy" now than many years ago, but still gives a good experience. I have always though the food Ok - and "thai" enough in heat for overseas visitors, and not too bland for me.

    Mechai did a lot of great work on promoting condom usage in Thailand, and many would say that he is the only reason the country has not had many millions more deaths from HIV/AIDS. Truely a good man and one of the few unselfish Thais who actually try to give back to society.

    Prices are cheap, yer granny will be "amusedly titillated" and you are benefiting a good cause - all reasons to drop by once in a while.

    Cabbages and Condoms Resort, The Gardens

    The gardens at Cabbages and Condoms are more like jungle with walkways,although I don't think you get rabbits in the jungle and there are quite a few of them wandering around.



    There are misters all over the place to help cool it down, probably also helps in that the plants probably don't need to be watered using the misters most of the day.



    A few man made streams, bridges and boats, plenty of fish in the streams though.
