This restaurant in Bangkok is offering hopeful visitors of Italy the next best thing though: extravagant Rome decor. The Rome Restaurant in Bangkok is somehow elegant yet goofy, as restaurant-goers are surrounded by high-rise Rome lookalike structures.

Little Zoo Café

Cafe, Coffee Shop, Thai, $$$

This two-storey petting zoo houses a plethora of seemingly strange animals. Whether you want to take a raccoon-riddled selfie or hold a chinchilla, this is the cafe for you. All of the enclosures are made from (very strong) glass, so customers can eat and watch as the animals play in their maze of housing. The cafe serves lunch for when you’re hungry, and coffee for when you’re not.

Cabbages & Condoms

Restaurant, Thai, $$$

Prepare to dine on the safest food money can buy at Cabbages & Condoms. This condom-themed restaurant guarantees its customers that the food here will not cause pregnancy … well, we would certainly hope not. But there is actually a lot more going on behind the scenes. In addition to the seemingly hilarious decor, with everything from lampshades to mannequins sheltered in latex, this restaurant is a huge supporter of multiple foundations and development programs across Thailand. From safe sex to schooling, Cabbages & Condoms does a lot more than just serve up delicious food and get a few chuckles out of restaurant-goers: it is also making a difference across the country.
