Revenge would be a dish “best served cold”, good Godfather’s Don Vito Corleone, but be assured, pasta and pizza are served piping hot making to purchase at mobster-themed The Don Pizza & Pasta.
The Arab Street area is constantly on the surprise and delight with diverse food options, this time around with solid pizza and pasta offerings at newly opened foodcourt Fomo, that is certainly the place to find The Don.
Taking on the space formerly occupied by Middle Eastern joint Nabins, hipster foodcourt Fomo comes with wooden furniture, hanging plants as well as an Instagram-friendly garden courtyard area which includes a swing.
But don’t let that distract you against the unexpected food options inside, for example high class pizza and pasta.

Don’t permit names in the dishes – which reference Italian-American mob bosses along with the Godfather movies – distract you against the laundry either.
The foodcourt only houses stalls offering options without pork or lard, but containing not limited the bathroom offered a lot in the Don, which includes the signature Al Capone laksa pasta.
The linguine is cooked al dente and coated inside the thick, but never cloying sauce and generously studded with prawns, fish cake and tau pok. The hearty and satisfying dish is topped with fried curry leaves plus a hard-boiled egg.
It is likely to be named right after the American mobster, even so the only intimidating benefit of it had been the slightly spicy kick within the laksa sauce.
Other pasta options, which start at $7.90 for aglio olio (as well as Drive-By since it is called about the menu), include the rigatoni and duck pasta (Mr Corleone, $11.90) as well as a beef penne dish (Frank Costello, $11.90).
You could also decide on spaghetti, penne, linguine or rigatoni for your pasta.
There are even add-on options just like mushroom, chicken and beef ($3 each) or, should you be feeling indulgent, prawn, duck and soft shell crab ($4 each) or foie gras ($7).
But the standout in my situation may be a 10-inch pizza called Mickey That Pesto ($14.90), topped with basil pesto, garlic, mushrooms, mozzarella, pine nuts along with a hardly noticeable spritz of truffle oil – it\’s not that it critical that last flourish.
For a foodcourt pizza, the crust is light and pleasantly chewy, like it can be created with freshly made dough instead of store-bought frozen base. The toppings are usually not excessive either, which suggests the pizza doesn\’t go soggy, even with sitting to choose from for some time.
All pizzas are priced at $14.90, with variations say for example a classical margherita with tomata, basil and mozzarella (called the Salvatore) plus the left-field My dear Guac that includes avocado, turkey, corn, chilli, tomato and red pepper.
