Is there such a thing as Brooklyn Chinese? There is, if you listen to Wei Lee, who serves freshly fried shrimp wonton, brisket noodle soup and Hainan chicken rice (dark meat on the bone with seasoned rice), a specialty of Malaysia, at his new restaurant.

Combining ingredients that are both popular and typical of Middle Eastern and Moroccan cuisine, Paymon’s general manager Jeff Ecker created a drink that pairs well with the tradition of smoking hookah. With delicate flavors such as mango, coconut, orange and cherry, Ecker notes that it appeals to the female set as well. The cocktail was also featured in 2002 on Rachael Ray’s show, $40 a Day. It has remained on the menu ever since, a testament to the enduring success of this match made in the Mediterranean.
