Review - The Two Wolves: Community Cantina

Ryan Kennedy checked out some food for a cause this week...

At The Two Wolves: Community Cantina, the décor tells a worldly story: the ceiling boasts strings of flags and hanging plants, and the walls are festooned with action shots of volunteers and religious paraphernalia. The purpose here is to sell food and drink to raise money for The Cardoner Project, a Jesuit and Catholic youth network that sends volunteers all over the world to help out communities in need.

My religion is a little rusty, but if that means cheap and tasty food that is made for snacking over Beers ($14/student jug) and Sangria ($12/half litre), then I could be a late convert. With noble intent well established, what of the food?

Along with a bunch of media types celebrating The Two Wolves’ opening, I chowed down on some favourites to see if godly intent translated to flavour. Blessedly warm-spiced and flaky Pope Francis’ Spicy Empanadas ($11) were delightful.

Unfortunately, the Korean Fried Chicken ($11) was disappointingly sweet and soggy, and an oddly vinegary dressing let down the vermicelli noodle salad: Sister Hien’s Bun Thit Nuong ($10).

Fortunately, redemption was at hand with dessert, with the Eton-inspired Bellarmine Mess ($6) washing away all earlier sins. If you ever needed an excuse to drink booze and eat empanadas in good faith, this is it.

cardoner and cuneen
the cardoner project were recently advertising some sort of leadership schtick with margaret cuneen ffs - maybe a good place to suss out how to cover up sins and disable social justice bodies, whilst advocating for the dismantling of progressive initiatives within the legal fraternity.

sure as shit wouldn't wanna support this mob myself. glad to see the gum concert that was scheduled to happen there next month has been moved to the oxford art.

Re: cardoner and cuneen
I think Ryan's review makes it very clear this is religiously affiliated food.
