Cabbages & Condoms, Bangkok

Cabbages & Condoms is a Thai restaurant which I would like to introduce for today. There is a word "condom" in the restaurant name does not mean the restaurant is cooking using a condom or serving the food on a condom. Nothing near that. Initially, they started up this restaurant is for charity purpose to gather donation to help and create awareness over the deadly HIV virus which cause AIDS.
So from a normal charity restaurant has brings them the fame worldwide. This is a mannequin which is decorated with condoms!
Condom Christmas Tree!!! Wow...it is so beautiful. Don't worry, those condoms definitely not used ones. Otherwise, it is really...ewwww...unimaginable.
Thailand is one of the famous sex trade country in the world and surprisingly condoms are not really widely being used. They are not educated that way so this restaurant is purposely trying to sending this message out to everyone. 
A more detailed introduction about the vision and mission of this restaurant.
There are 2 levels in this restaurant and this picture is taken at the 1st floor. Fully packed!
Full house as well at the ground floor but mostly you can see are all foreigners and tourists. Hardly see and local here.
Seafood Clear Soup Tomyam @100baht is real nice but the portion is so small! 
Somtam @90baht is a Thai salad. Very sourish at the first bite but the more you eat the more you will like the taste.
While this one is the brown rice @50 baht which is good for high cholesterol people to eat. 
Kai Ta Kal @200baht, it is a pan-grilled chicken lemongrass with herbs and dress with their own special sauce. This is good for me. I like how they prepare the chicken in a way which makes it boneless.
Steamed Fish @350 baht, usually I thought if you want to preserve a fish freshness and maintain its own sweetness, steam a fish is the best choice. However, this fact does not apply here because this fish is not just no freshness no sweetness but only tasteless. I do not know how to eat this fish. It is a real waste.
Mixed Vegetables with prawns and chicken @200 baht. We order this just to complete our desire of having a complete meal with meat and vegetables. As for the taste, it is below average.
In the end, I still like this plate of fruits which cost us 60 baht.
They serves lots of varieties of Thai food but it is hard for me to know where to start with. A chef recommendation mark or symbol is greatly helpful. The prices here are very expensive and this is because they will donate some of the money to AIDS fund. The taste of the food are mediocre which is good just for you to try once. That's why you only see foreigners and tourist but not locals here. The best part is when you footing the bill, they will give you a piece of condom to each of us. 
Total Damage: 1250 baht
Service: 1/5
Ambiance: 4/5
Food Serving Speed: Very Slow
Recommended?: Just once.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
