Two Wolves is a not-for-profit cafe, social enterprise project and youth volunteering hub, all wrapped in one.

The soul food puns may have already been made, but this feel-good food establishment is serving up plenty of love. On a rainy evening last week, the cafe’s warm interior was a cozy relief from the drizzle. Fairy lights, live music and long, candle-lit tables were a welcome relief from Broadway’s crazy rush hour traffic.

On the night, the venue’s rotating menu began with a generous serving of Pope Francis’ Spicy Empanadas. The South American dish is a classic example of the cafe’s home-style ethnic cuisine. Jumping from the street food of Vietnam, Mexico, Thailand and Ecuador, the menu is largely inspired by the countries that will benefit from the funds raised at Two Wolves.

The funds will go into supporting The Cardoner Project . The project was established by Two Wolves creator Father Braithwaite in 2010 as a means to facilitate young people with the opportunity to give back. In this newest venture, volunteers can meaningfully contribute to funding education initiatives like the St Vincent Diem Orphanage in Central Vietnam that supports children with a range of physical and mental disabilities.
Sister Hien’s Bun Thit Nuong, an Asian salad of rice noodles, raw vegetables and fresh herbs, was inspired by this particular project. Another local Vietnamese favourite served on the night was a Chicken, Lemongrass and Sweet Potato Curry.

Other dishes from the evening included Korean Fried Chicken and Aloo Gobi Masala. For desert, a Black Sticky Rice pudding with Mango and Coconut was served alongside a classic Eton Mess with crunchy meringue and fresh berries. All the dishes delivered what was promised – simple, hearty and authentic food. What’s more, nothing was priced higher than $11.

The bar stocks wine provided by Sevenhill, one of Australia’s first wineries established by Austrian Jesuits in 1851. Cocktails and beers are also on offer and all are very reasonably priced.
