Back to Cabbages and Condoms. My Mum was at a global conference in Bangkok and invited me to attend. One night I was told to dress smartly as we were going to a top notch restaurant in the city. It was Cabbages and Condoms. It was a vast restaurant, at least three times the capacity of the one here. The walls were frangipani trees and the food was exceptional. Here I learned of how rude it is to eat off a fork - I wish people would play the game on this one. This restaurant's quirky condom theme is actually part of a massive campaign started in the 1970's to raise awareness about safe sex. I have to say that receiving a condom rather than an after dinner mint seemed hilarious at the time.
I had been aware that Trinity in Bicester has been owned by the Thai company for a number of years. I was delighted when I realised that it had become a real Cabbages and Condoms - their deliberate "slow launch" meant it took me a while. I really don't think people in Bicester actually realise what has fallen onto their doorsteps and the fact that they are working with the NHS to continue their plight to raise awareness with regard to safe sex.
All that aside, the valentine night experience didn't disappoint. What I love about the place is the authentic food and regular staff ... these guys rock!
|Jeep ... she is such a sweetie ... so lovely!|
|Sonny - please quit drowning me in Thai Rum - it is vicious!|
|Evil Red Fuel|
|Vodka Martini ... I've been watching too much Gossip Girl!|
|Prawn Panang Curry (not spicy at all)|
|Red Curry with Duck (not too spicy)|
|Presentation is excellent!|
I can't impress on anyone enough just how lucky we are to have this restaurant here. Expand your minds and travel to Bangkok without leaving Bicester, Authentic background music - for example going to an italian playing chart music bugs me - truly awesome food and lovely staff make for a great all round dining experience.
