In 2022, beloved social enterprise Two Good Co opened a cafe and convenience store in Darlinghurst's Yirranma Place. The venue provides Sydneysiders with tasty breakfast and lunch options, as well as products from local ethically minded businesses such as The Bread & Butter Project, Kua Coffee and Gelato Messina — all while raising funds to help Two Good's goal of supporting vulnerable women by providing pathways out of crisis living.

Each month at the cafe, the crew brings in a well-known and well-loved chef or culinary team to create special one-off menu items. Kylie Kwong, Maggie Beer, Peter Gilmore and Matt Moran have all been on curating duties in the past, and the month of September 2023 sees the pleasure fall on food writer, restaurateur and Creative Director of the Carriageworks Farmers Markets Mike McEnearney.

McEnearney is known for his ever-popular cookbooks Real Food and Kitchen by Mike. A purveyor of all things fresh, sustainable and down-to-earth, McEnearney brings a low-effort and high-flavour approach to Two Good Co's monthly menu.

A mushroom, lentil ragu and cheese toastie boasting a rich, herb-forward sauce and melted cheese sandwiched between two slices of classic white toast.

Available throughout September, the menu features two no-fuss lunch items and a little sweet treat. Item number one is the mushroom, lentil ragu and cheese toastie, which boasts a rich, herb-forward sauce and melted cheese sandwiched between two slices of thick white toast. Also available: a hearty Middle-Eastern inspired lentil soup coating tenderly spiced meat, topped with a dash of coriander and paired with a toasted slice of dipping bread to sop up the remains of aromatic soup.

Rounding out the offerings is a little lunchtime dessert in a bite-sized form — light and crisp round jammie dodgers with a fruity marmalade and creamy hazelnut centre, topped with a generous sprinkle of icing sugar.

If you want to sample the menu, just head over to 262 Liverpool Street at some point this month.
